    About

    Contracommon’s 4th annual Summer Arts Festival is a day-long festival celebrating local arts and community–featuring 45+ creative vendors, 5 live music acts, and free art activities in the Children’s Art Garden. The festival will take place on May 25th, from 2pm to 8pm, on the Hill Country Galleria’s central plaza. Attendance is completely free of charge! This festival directly supports the emerging artists and makers of Central Texas by connecting them with a huge community of art lovers throughout west Austin and the Hill Country.

    This year’s Summer Arts Festival will be held at the unofficial start of the season, Memorial Day Weekend, in hopes of beating those hot summer temperatures. Attendees are also welcome to visit our indoor gallery space, where Contracommon’s Juried Regional Exhibition of emerging Central Texas artists will be on view. The exhibition will run from April 22 to June 3rd, 2024, with the Summer Arts Festival serving as a closing event. A panel of jurors local to the Central Texas arts community–including Richard Samuel, Leah Bury, Mónica Ceniceros, and Jules Buck Jones–will select 10-15 artists to be included in the exhibition.
