E.A.S.T. - come see *annemarie* this weekend!!!

E.A.S.T., or The East Austin Studio Tour, is now in its seventh year - and getting bigger and badder every year!

This year I am thrilled to announce that I will be participating as an artist. Below are all the juicy details on my personal picks for this weekend! The tour is organized by number - so each studio/artist I list shows their number and a link to their site. There will be white signs all over the East Side with the numbers to help you get around.

81. *annemarie* Style for the Individual
Anne Marie Beard is a handbag designer and certified fabric junkie. She creates exquisite artisan handbags from vintage and unique materials.

81. The WIM Group
Custom cabinets and furniture. This fabulous woodshop is where I work part time - come see samples of the beautiful furniture we make - and have some free beer and snacks!

80. Casey Woods Photography
Casey takes beautiful photographs of people and places. She will be showcasing some pictures of her travels and a new work in progress about a fascinating East Austin Diva!

143a. Studio 1408
Studio 1408 explores surface design, silkscreen printing, textile arts, and mixed media art. Headed up by Kathleen McTee - the fabulous woman behind the Cherrywood Art Fair - this Studio is full of creative talent! They will be having demonstrations all weekend!

45b Lisa Crowder Lisa creates innovative jewelry in a variety of materials including: sterling silver, gold, enamel, ebony & bone. She also has the prettiest curly hair!

141. Amy Barber, Sweettooth Bags

Amy designs and makes delicious sewn goods - wallets and party purses! She is also hosting Naughty Secretary Club and Hot Pink Pistol for the tour!

112. East End Craft Gallery

These gals are new to the Austin Craft Scene - and have made quite an imprint in just a few months. Look for the East End Craft Gallery to be the jumping off point for many up-and-coming Austin designers, crafters and artists!

Come on out and see all the fabulous artists this weekend! Remember, the whole tour is free, self-guided, and most places will have free snacks. Support the Austin Arts Community!!!
