    Austin Studio Tour

    The Austin Studio Tour, produced by Big Medium, is a free, self-guided art event that combines the West Austin Studio Tour and East Austin Studio Tour to provide opportunities for artists all over Austin to connect with each other and showcase current work – and for the public to experience the cultural vibrancy of our city from, you might say, the inside out. This year's Tour happens over three weekends and will be divided into two regions, west of IH-35 and east of IH-35, allowing citizens to choose weekends and regions and plan accordingly. We've got a fine mess o' recommendations coming up for you next issue, but right now check out the excellent website these wizards have conjured for your delight and convenience.
    Sat.-Sun., Nov. 19-20, noon-6pm. Free.

    Ghost Line X

    This is a massive immersive sound and light experience from Rolling Ryot, with a 15-channel sound system – 15 large speakers arranged linearly across 420 feet, underneath the Boggy Creek overpass in Rosewood Park – that explores the creative potential of sound in motion, and featuring compositions by Sebastian DeWay, Simon Hutchinson, Joaquin Jimenez-Sauma, Zeynep Özcan, Brian Wenner, and Lyman Hardy. Verdict: Mindblowing. Note: Some fool may have promoted it earlier, for an incorrect date, but this is its for-real incarnation. Suggestion: Bike your way there, bring a lawn chair and a blanket, be glad stuff like this still happens in Austin.
    Sat., Nov. 19, 6:30-9:30pm. Free.

    Camiba Gallery: The Elementals

    Here's a stunning show of abstractions by Fort Worth-based artist Lee Albert Hill, with fresh works that "reflect the essential human spirit of mark-making in response to the invisible forces that inherently exist between the four natural elements: earth, water, air, and fire." We don't ultimately care what Hill chooses to reflect with his art, tbh; we just want to feast our awestruck eyes on the results for hours.
