Austonian Artist Court Lurie on the East Austin Studio Tour
This weekend marks the conclusion of the East Austin Studio Tour (E.A.S.T.), an annual event that invites Austinites to visit the creative epicenter of Austin to discover new talent, see working studios, and support the local arts community.
E.A.S.T. features over 100 artist’s studios and workspaces, one of which is ArtPost at 4704 East Cesar Chavez, where The Austonian Art Collection artist Court Lurie is a resident and steering committee member. A contemporary artist and abstract painter, Lurie has spent years exploring the intricacies of thought patterns and their expression through action and emotion. Lurie brings that explorative spirit into her work through form, color and texture.
Her piece in The Austonian, titled “Macroscopic View” includes 12 small, richly layered acrylic and resin paintings, all of which are mounted in a maple box frame. Lurie has shown her work nationally and internationally for 15 years.
The Austonian Art Collection includes more than 100 pieces of local and regional art by artists including Roi James, Lance Letscher and Claudia Reese. A downloadable version of The Austonian Art Collection catalog is available here.
