Images of Austin & the Southwest
4612 Burnet, 512/451-1229
When it comes to rendering the Capital City in paint, Mary Doerr is Austin's Old Master. Since 1986, she has spent most of her time committing to canvas images of our town's unique landmarks, from the Capitol and the Tower to the Avenue B Grocery and the former Terminix building (with bug!) at 12th and Lamar. Doerr's clean, naturalistic watercolors and prints are enormously popular - Chronicle readers voted her their favorite artist in one Best of Austin poll - and the best place to find 'em is in this charming renovated home on Burnet. The cozy cottage is chock full of Doerr's work, plus an abundance of regional art by local and regional artists, including jewelry, metal craft, pottery, sculpture, glass etching, and Western cowboy/cowgirl art.
