It’s the last weekend of the Austin Studio Tour! What stops are you going to see?
This weekend is your last chance to catch all of the live streams, workshops, virtual galleries and outdoor installations that are a part of this year’s Austin Studio Tour.
With 420+ participants, there is no shortage of content vying for your attention. Scrolling through the lists of artists and events can be overwhelming, so we did the work for you. (We even put together our own self-guided themed tour).
This week, we added 8 more artists to accompany our previous list of recommendations. So don’t hesitate! You can enjoy the tour from the comfort of your own home or visit artwork at outdoor exhibitions. Here are 8 more amazing artists to see.
WHAT: Enjoy art and the great outdoors this weekend with Toni’s Skyline Virtual Outdoor Gallery. You can check out her photographs as you travel along the hike and bike trail.
“I will be displaying my new photography series of the Austin skyline through an outdoor virtual gallery along the Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail. I’ve placed QR codes at viewing spots along the trail, and when scanned they take you to an online gallery of photographs I’ve taken at that specific location. More information and a map of the gallery stops can be found on my website.”

WHERE: Multiple stops along the hike and bike trail (map on website)

WHAT: Two Tides Torn is an physical exhibition taking place in artist Marcus “Delmar” Clarke’s garage and front yard. Marcus explores the notion of a fulfilling life through the narrative of the ocean before and after sunrise, using those as symbols to discourse despair and hope as part of the same waters and the same story. This is explored though installation art, video projection, and cyanotype-based paintings in a socially distanced setting.
