10 Photos in This Gallery
Artcrawl is an annual event that takes place in November, usually on the same weekend as Via Colori. It is an early Christmas shopping opportunity for collectors. It’s located in the warehouse district North of downtown Houston, Texas that stretches from the docks North of I-10 where Diverse Works used to be housed to the Hardy Nance Studios where over 50 artists have studios. This area used to be dodgy, but has become gentrified. My two favorite venues here are Mother Dog Studios and the Hardy Nance Studios. Those are where I spent most of my time. The 2014 Art Crawl is next Saturday.
Due to my trip to Spain, I only had half a month of cruising Houston’s excellent art galleries. I did get to the opening of the Houston Fine Arts Fair. It was very crowded.
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.
