What to See:

Artist Studios
This is where the creativity begins. For many of these spaces, this is the one time of year that you can get a special glimpse into the inspiration, process, and techniques of the artist. In this category, you can see home studios, spaces in larger studio complexes, or stand-alone commercial studios.

This category is for established art venues with regular gallery programming. These spaces are committed to exhibiting art year-round, supporting artists with opportunities to share their work and vision with the public in a dedicated space.

Temporary Exhibitions
Temporary Exhibitions include pop-up shows, often created specifically for West. In this category, you can see exhibitions in warehouse spaces, empty homes, libraries, small businesses, and other unconventional venues.

Happenings are time-based art events. This category may include performances, workshops, opening receptions, installations, competitions, art-centered celebrations, educational programming, and art-themed parties.

Partner Programs
Partner Programs serve to educate our community about the fellow organizations and businesses who support the arts year-round in Austin. Partner Programs include a variety of offerings, such as special events by art organizations, private tours, and fundraisers that support the future of East.
