While AMOA and ArtHouse are the undisputed art heavyweights on Congress, the Hideout gives coffeehouse wall space to rising Austin-based talents. Selected by the management, there's an incredible diversity of styles on display: Recent shows have included CS Jennings' monkey pirates, high school whiz kid Justin Schueleter's brand of pop-art collage, Amy Hughes' globe-trotting photos, Lydia Heckendorf's charcoals of musical icons, and the manga-inspired portraits of David de Lara. Most of the work is for sale, so if you see a piece you like, do your bit for some starving artist. But move fast: Exhibitions only last a couple of weeks, giving the next artist a shot at recognition.
