Every time I visit Austin, I make it a point to stop by Yard Dog. Not a huge place but everything in it is super cool Great art by great artisans. Highly recommend!

This is not a good stop for those with children but it is an interesting little gallery. Some good art pieces but nothing to go out of the way for.

Yard dog is a small place but had some amazing art to look at and to buy! Unfortunately I didn't take notes about the artists so I can't even say who was there. Also unfortunately, I am broke so I couldn't buy any. i love art- it was food for my brain and soul! Thanks yard dog folks!

This is an awesome gallery that shows work by self taught artists. There are some names you'll know, and others you wont, with affordable prices.

This place is on Congress Ave. and it is a rad joint. The employee wasn't massively thrilled to be there and didn't offer any tidbits about the art or artists. It's self-guided and a funky art studio. I wouldn't go again but it was cool to poke around at the art.

I stop by yard dog every time I'm in Austin. Good collection of folk/non traditional artists represented around the store. Knowledgable staff can give you interesting background. Other cool shops and restaurants around the neighborhood, too. Enjoy
