Best New Experimental Art Space

DORF Gallery

Creating and maintaining a gallery is a lot of work. Creating and maintaining a home is a lot of work. For whatever reason, artists Eric Manche and Sara Vanderbeek decided to exponentialize their hard work and open an art gallery in the garage and backyard of their home. Well, alright, we know the reason. Arts venues in Austin are struggling in the face of higher costs and insufficient funding, but that’s all the more reason to support this awesome DIY space and their exciting shows. Since their launch earlier this year, DORF's consistently innovative programming of talented artists has kept us coming back and staying tuned for more.
