The Old Bakery & Artisan Emporium is a historic building located in downtown Austin. Local artists and craftspeople keep our artisan shop full of unique, handmade items.

Our Art Gallery features the work of local artists who are 50+ years old. We provide Visitor Center information and have a history exhibit that explores Austin's immigrant history through the Lundberg-Maerki Historical Collection.


Call for Pet Portraits by Veterans - image examples include wooden carved cat, painting of a man with his dog, and a pen and ink sketch of a bird

We are currently seeking any visual representation of pets created by military veterans who are over the age of 50 for an upcoming art exhibition with the Austin Veteran Arts Festival (AVA Fest).
The portraits could be framed photographs, paintings, sculptures, or sketches. We welcome any pets in the portraits - dogs, cats, birds, you name it!
Please send 3-5 images and a short statement about your pet to by September 14th, 2024.
