West Austin Studio Tour 2016

The spring sibling to Big Medium's East Austin Studio Tour turns 5 this year with more than 300 artists, exhibitions, and happenings spread across the sunset side of I-35 May 14 & 15 and 21 & 22, 11am-6pm each day. As with EAST, the best guide to all the West Austin Studio Tour has to offer is the extensive catalog published by presenting organization Big Medium, complete with map. Catalogs are available for free at all library branches, while supplies last. Or you could get one and support Big Medium at the same time by attending Due WEST, the kickoff event and fundraiser for WEST that premieres the tour's group exhibition, featuring work by more than 220 artists. Due WEST takes place Friday, May 13, 7-10pm, at the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Rd. For more information, visit www.west.bigmedium.org.

You can also score tips on where to stop during this year's WEST at austinchronicle.com/daily/arts, where Wayne Alan Brenner has posted his recommendations. Look for more postings soon.
