We're still ALIVE!
...and still searching for a new long-term home. But don't worry we have some good news!
As many might know the original plan to relocate to Pleasant Valley was not able to go forward due to city CODE issues with the structure. Looking forward, we are optimistically collaborating with Almost Real Things to develop a model that supports sustainable private and shared creative studios, co-working space, and mixed use community rooms while prioritizing affordable space in Austin.
In effort to continue supporting local artists, the two organizations are partnering to offer a subsidized shared studio space to two artists that have been displaced, which will culminate with a duo-exhibition in the Fall.
In the interim, we are thankful for our new programming partnership with Cloud Tree Studios & Gallery where we will host a mixture of four-week exhibitions, pop-up shows and performances. Please join us for the first show at Cloud Tree on May 3rd. Women of WEST go East is a pop-up show curated by Laura Johnson to promote artists in stand-alone studios participating in West Austin Studio Tour - stay tuned for more info!
