Yard Dog

1510 S. Congress
Austin, 78704
512/912-1613
When this petite yet select outpost on SoCo opened in 1995, it focused almost exclusively on folk art and outsider art originating in the Deep South. But in short order, owners Randy Franklin and Jann Baskett found too much other work they liked and wanted to show to restrict their exhibitions to specific categories. Now, you're as likely to find art by musicians such as Jon Langford and Bob Schneider on view as by an outsider icon like Howard Finster. Yard Dog also showcases up-and-coming artists from across North America – even some with art degrees – in rotating exhibitions, but however much the artists may have changed, the gallery retains the pleasingly funky vibe it had in the Nineties.
