Austinites, we know it's cold right now. I almost wore tights under my jeans this morning, and I kind of regret thinking better of it. But guess what? It's going to get warmer this weekend, and you should celebrate by exploring one of Austin's biggest art events.

It's the 13th annual East Austin Studio Tour (aka EAST), an enormous free art show and party that takes place all around East Austin. If you've been before, we don't need to tell you how awesome it is. If you haven't, think of it as an open-studio for hundreds of artists, plus parties, performances, shopping, and festivities of all kinds! EAST, which is presented by Big Medium, kicks off this Saturday, and continues through this weekend and the next.

We can't even begin to tell you all of the events, but we can direct you to the excellent EAST website, which catalogues every participating locale, and provides a helpful map.

One thing you don't want to miss is Big Medium's opening night party, where a reception will take place for artist Barna Kantor's new exhibition. After a day of traipsing around the East Side, you can count on Big Medium and the whole Canopy complex (including our many galleries and artist studios) to be bumping. We certainly will be at Son of a Sailor! The Big Medium party goes from 6 till 8, but our studio will be open for shopping and touring even later. Come see us any time before 10 PM! We can't wait!
