If you haven't ever visited Canopy in East Austin, this is your chance to redeem yourself. For those not familiar with Canopy, it's an old warehouse that got a thorough Michael Hsu makeover so it could become a creative art space. The first weekend of every month they have a free open house and studio tour called OPEN Canopy. This months OPEN Canopy is tonight August 1st from 6-9 and tomorrow August 2nd from 12-6. While there are loads of talented artists out there, my top picks to check out are below.
August 1st 6-9 & August 2nd 12-6.
My top picks
Troy Allen is super talented kicking out interesting paintings, drawings and installation work. While I love them all, my favorite are his drawings which manage to be both playful and provocative at the same time. He even manages to channel some Sol LeWitt magic into some of his pieces.
Jenn Hassin Studios
Jenn is another artists who's talents can't be confined to just one medium. She proves equally talented whether water coloring or creating installation art. Her Cartography of the Mind series which combines beautiful pen and ink and watercolor is my favorite.
