Viewing a Masterpiece

Viewing a Masterpiece

Last night the Winter and Spring Street studios had an open house.  There are 90 artist’s studios at Winter Street and about 40 at Spring Street.  Both buildings were converted from industrial use.  Having a large number of artist’s studios close together creates a critical mass allowing such events.  The last two photos are from a week ago at Isabella Court and nearby Diverse Works.

  1. I love how you capture these real-life moments. People just being themselves, a second or less of time, frozen solid. The woman in the blue dress does awesome work!

  4. Love the vacant lot and wish I had a bigger tattoo myself… I’m saving for it though! ;)

    • The vacant lot is at ISO 12,800 or something like that. super extra dark.

  5. Houston seems like it would be a great place to view art. It seems lively and full of interest…

    • There is a lot of art activity here of all kinds. Houston is a major center for emerging visual artists.

  6. “Girl with tatoos in a corset” is a perfect capture. Interesting without artificial posing. Nicely done, Dave.
