Austin Art Garage is the every person's art gallery with affordable art for sale and to enjoy. The Art Gallery displays and sells art from local up and coming artists. The co-founder of Austin Art Garage Jake Bryer told us many local Austin artists have started showing here, and then moved on to bigger (read: more expensive and well-known) galleries. We stopped him on his way in when he was bringing more of his photography art for sale for the shop. We didn't know that he was the co-founder of the place as we chatted with him, and now it makes me happy to know we liked his art the best, and we bought several pieces to take home with us. He told us about his passion to get affordable art for every home, and I like the sound of that. Austin Art Garage is also online and you can shop for the art on their website http://austinartgarage.com.
But if you are in Austin, I highly recommend visiting, a great place both for locals and visitors. They have several artists who create Austin-themed art making this an excellent non-touristy tourist shop.
