Art Houston is a coordinated series of gallery openings in the hottest part of the year. These photos were taken at, outside of, or near the galleries.
This post takes its title from a show at Diverse Works, a Houston non-profit that supports visual arts. Diverse Works specializes in installations, and this multiple artist show was no exception.
Photos of people, places and things in my home town.
Afterglow was exhibited at Sicardi Gallery. Gilbert Hsaio’s show was at Gallery Sonja Roesch. I bought a venison sausage sandwich from the chef outside of Hardy and Nance Street Studios and went inside to find a girl taking pictures with her mobile phone held high.
Houston artist Ivete Lucas is pictured wearing colorful hose. She and her husband constructed the tree sculpture which stands behind her, at Lawndale Center for the Arts. Her friend Zahira is to her right and the other two girls were the most interestingly dressed ones I could round up for the shot. Claudia is a friend and the shot is a set up.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Janavi in her studio. She is also a scuba diver and we had an acquaintance in common in India. Of this group, April Murphy is the only one that I have known for a while. She appears with a work in progress. Vincent Fink’s work is all about fantasy. Paige does abstract floral paintings. All of these artists were photographed at the Winter and Spring Street Studios Second Saturday open house.
This major art fair was held over the weekend in Houston at the George R Brown Convention Center, downtown. They had a lot of interesting contemporary art on display.
