Best Art Show and Party

Arthouse’s Annual 5x7 Show

The entries – by hundreds of artists – are all in a 5-by-7 format. The range of work in every possible medium is staggering, from some of the finest artists across the country ... and everything is $100. But that's just the exhibition. For the opening fundraising party, the works are tagged and prospective buyers jealously hover over the piece they have staked out ... and then all hell breaks loose at the designated moment when everybody lunges for the piece they desire, causing a near-riot as they snag the coveted piece. It is a party and exhibition not to be missed – a true Austin event.
