Travis Heights Art Trail Opens For Upcoming Weekend

published on December 1, 2011

Every neighborhood is unique, but it takes an especially rare blend of creativity, dedication, and perseverance to organize, host, and feature an expansive collection of local artists in homes over the course of a weekend. The Travis Heights Art Trail, opening this Saturday, December 3rd through Sunday, December 4th, will be held in Southwest Austin, just south of Riverside Dr., west of I35, east of Congress Ave., and north of Oltorf.

The artists will present works in an array of mediums that include: ceramics, sculpture, photography, woodwork, hooked rugs, paintings, fiber art, wearable art, mosaics, mixed media, jewelry, music, toys, and more. Visitors can walk the iconic neighborhood located in the SoCo district while shopping for special gifts and original artwork. Artists will allow visitors a rare glimpse behind the curtains of their studios and homes to get a better grasp on the abundance of creative energy happening just off the doorsteps of Downtown Austin.

Santa Claus will be in attendance, stopping by 1403 Alameda Drive on Sunday from 2 – 4PM.

Paul Shelander, a resident and local photographer and exhibitor at the show, says the Travis Heights Art Trail is “very much like when I was a kid with a lemonade stand in the front yard…it’s so much fun seeing neighbors from the surrounding community come in; it’s a real blast.”

Every neighborhood in Austin has a personality as interesting and unique as its residents. If you’d like help starting a new Austin home search to locate your ideal neighborhood, contact an Austin Realtor who values the aspects of Austin that make it such an exciting place to live.
