    Austin Empty Bowl Project

    This is the 22nd annual event, hosted by the Central Texas Food Bank, and it's as lovely as it is simple to participate: Select a ceramic bowl from the thousands donated by local potters; choose your favorite gourmet soups from Austin’s best chefs and restaurants, and enjoy lunch while listening to live music; take the bowl home with you. Is that still too much fuss? Then attend the fancy preview party on Saturday instead! Note: All proceeds benefit the CTFB children’s programs and Meals on Wheels Central Texas. Read Emily Beyda's article about the history and future of the event.
    Sun., Nov. 18, 11am-3pm. $25.

    East Austin Studio Tour

    Here's the second and final weekend of the biggest visual-arts event of the Austin year, the annual Big Medium-organized spectacle of creative goodness, with hundreds of private studios and galleries opening their doors all across the sunrise side of our busy city, for your pretty-much-nonstop opps for shopping, shmoozing, interactive presentations, workshops, parties, and then afterparties into the wee hours of each night. Discover new artists. Rekindle old relationships. Get to actually know the urban hub in which you live! Boots on the everlovin' ground, as they say. Check the EAST website for a brimming trove of details, note that your Austin Chronicle has more coverage online and in print as the event draws nigh, and go ahead, citizen: prepare to be a part of the art deep in the slightly arrhythmic heart of Texas.

    Alejandra Almuelle: Journey

    This part of EAST is an exhibit of ceramic sculpture exploring an archetypal theme with acute relevance today, in which transitions occur across multiple spectra – cultural, national, gender-based, and geographical. These are the newest creations of Almuelle, whose work we recommend most highly.

    Big Medium: War Tuba Recital

    It reflects well on the whole Tito's Prize thing, we think, that this year's recipient is one of the most interesting and relentless, one of the most community-oriented, artists in our creativity-glutted town. Whether you're an aficionado of the possibilities of visual art or the unexplored potential of musical instruments, Steve Parker's latest confluence of those two realms will delight your senses and inspire much thought.

    Dimension Gallery: Five Skin Ten Skin

    I've just seen a face I can't forget, and it's the face of Ian Ingram, whose mindblowing self-portrait evocations, now gone three-dimensional in almost eerie detail, are the solo show filling this excellent gallery in the wake of last week's "Seasons of Fruition" exhibition. Make it a part of your EAST experience, we suggest, citizen – or what are your art-hungry eyes and sense of wonder for, anyway?
