Yard Dog Gallery is a unconventional gallery in Austin, Texas, that shows work by unconventional artists from the US & Canada. The gallery opened in 1995, showing folk and outsider art from the Deep South. We rather quickly began adding work by artists whose work we loved and wanted to show and that fit in aesthetically alongside what we were already showing, but who were neither folk/outsider artists nor from the Deep South. So we dropped the categories. We haven't called ourselves a folk art gallery for a long time but the world still seems to think of us that way. That's ok.
We show the work of a number of artists who are also rather well-know musicians, including Jon Langford, Tom Russell, Bob Schneider, Ian McLagan, & Jad Fair. Other artists include Mike Egan, Brad & Sundie Ruppert, Kurt Herrmann, Scott Griffin, Bill Miller, Jennifer Harrison, Eric Bellis, Lamar Sorrento & more. Plus we still have a collection of Southern folk & outsider artists, including Jimmy Lee Sudduth, Mose Tolliver, Howard Finster, & Artist Chuckie Williams.
We're located in the heart of the S. Congress Ave. shopping district -- a great place to spend some time.
