Fisterra Studio

1200 E. Second, 482-0747, www.fisterrastudio.com

Works by painter and sculptor Jennifer Chenoweth, the artist in charge of the studio, but also by diverse guests Felice House, Richard P. Mansfield, Andrea Pramuk, Judith Simonds, Annie Simpson, and Erik Tragus.

Super! Alright!

301-A Chicon, 337/660-1706, www.superalright.com

Jen Bradley, Luther Himes IV, Jacob Villanueva, and others. We're especially – what's the word? – stoked about seeing the new stuff from Adreon Henry.

Toad Array

1706 Garden, 484-1135, www.toadarray.com

This collective of designers, photographers, and developers brings passion to pixels and makes memorable marks on the world's crowded slate.

Ryan McKerley

2710 E. Cesar Chavez, 477-4776, www.ryanmckerley.com

This ceramicist's work alone is reason enough to visit, but this year, his studio also boasts work by Ann Woodall, Christa Mares, Lisa Crowder, Anne Woods, Edmo Martinez, and Michael Merritt.

Michael Bennett

<i>Bouldin Heights</i>
Bouldin Heights

4824 E. Cesar Chavez, 385-3287

You want to see complex art wrought from welded metal? This man's studio should be one of the stops on your tour.

Iona Handcrafted Books

701 Tillery Ste. B-3, 247-4700, www.ionahandcraftedbooks.com

Not only does Mychal Mitchell create beautiful volumes the old-fashioned way – with leather and hand-stitched bindings and all – but he's also hosting work by Cherie Weaver and Horsemuffin as well.

Jamie Panzer

5305 Bolm #9.1, 828-8489, www.ismism.net/art

There are so many great artists at Big Medium, but don't let yourself miss the weird wonders this sculptor and collagist fashions from found objects and overclocked gray matter.

Jennifer Balkan

3109 Lafayette, 796-4842

What this woman does with oil paints on canvas sets our eyes and minds on fire.

Katy David

2204 Palo Pinto, 965-7061, www.katyegg.com

The artist specializes in pysanky, creating intricate patterns on eggshells via careful batik. The resulting objects are delicate and beautiful enough to make the entire House of Fabergé seethe with envy.

DeCola & Eusebi Studio

701 Tillery Ste. A-11, 389-2266, www.decola-eusebi.com

You know, there's stained glass and there's stained glass – and then there are these modernist miracles of transparent sculpture by Barry DeCola and Alexandra Eusebi.
