First Saturdays at the Canopy Complex
The artists and vendors at the Canopy complex are excited to present Open Canopy, a monthly celebration of art and the creative process. Please join us the first Saturday of every month between 1 pm and 4 pm as artists and creatives welcome you into their studio spaces for a behind the scenes look into their creative process.
Nestled within the heart of East Austin, the Canopy complex boasts 57 creative spaces, housing over 72 talented artists. Open Canopy allows you to step into their creative sanctuaries, offering an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at their artistic process. This is your chance to explore their inspiration, techniques, and passion for their craft.
Art aficionados will find a diverse range of original artwork available for purchase, and many artists are open to accepting commissions, allowing you to bring your unique vision to life through their talents.
Since its launch in August 2021, Open Canopy routinely welcomes an astonishing 200 plus visitors at each event. We’re thrilled to continue introducing new art enthusiasts to the wonder of Canopy and the broader Austin creative scene.
In addition to artist studios, Canopy houses the Ivester Gallery and ICOSA Gallery, creating an immersive art experience that extends beyond the studios. After a captivating artistic journey, visitors can relax at Sa Ten, where they can enjoy a coffee and a bite to eat.
Canopy is a vibrant, redeveloped East Austin warehouse, transformed into a creative community. The complex seamlessly connects artist studios, creative office spaces, art galleries, and a café through communal courtyards and covered breezeways, highlighting the symbiotic relationship between art, culture, and the public.
