It’s that time of the year again… time for the annual East Austin Studio Tour, and we couldn’t be more excited to participate. We’re looking at E.A.S.T.’s largest celebration of local artists and artisans to date, with more than 500 participants.
Local Austin non-profit Big Medium hosts the tour, featuring artist studios, galleries, temporary exhibitions, happenings, and partner programs. E.A.S.T. provides a creative space where local artists and members of the community come together to celebrate the best and weirdest Austin has to offer. One of the reasons we love this event so much is it brings together so many different kinds of people from all over, mostly Austinites but many state, national, and international tourists visit as well. The fact that the tour is free to the public allows those of all demographics to engage in unique artistic experiences. Last years tour hosted about 450 studio participants and over 30,000 people attended. This year we’re looking at close to 40,000 people in attendance and 534 studio participants which goes to show how far the tour has come since 2003 where there were only 28 artist studios, the majority of which continue to participate in E.A.S.T. to this day.
“East Austin is not the blank canvas developers might see. It’s like a Picasso – complex, disturbing when viewed from certain angles, beautiful when viewed from others” says John Langmore, a documentary photographer based in Austin, Texas. The purpose of the East Austin Studio Tour is to focus on the beauty that East Austin has to offer while celebrating its history and building a bigger, stronger, weirder community.
This year, E.A.S.T. takes place Saturday November 12th, Sunday November 13th, Saturday November 19th, and Sunday November 20th from 11am to 6pm. We will be open everyday – displaying our work, giving away our infamous Revelator Bloody Mary’s, and diving into the world of virtual reality. If you’ve ever wanted to hit Austin’s iconic attractions without fueling up the gas tank then stop by the Revelator offices and take a spin on our Samsung virtual reality headsets! The 13th and 19th we will also be hosting the incredibly talented Meghann Rosales from Nails Y’all who will be offering up hand painted nail art. So get out this weekend, support the East Austin art community, and come say hi!
