The first three photos were captured at an opening for Latin American artist Gabriel de la Mora at Sicardi Gallery in Houston. It was my first visit to Sicardi’s new and spacious building across the street from the Houston Center for Photography. Sicardi specializes in the work of Latin American artists. I thought the associate’s red outfit was quite theatrical. The two Venezuelan girls were fans of the artist and explained one of his works was constructed out of thousands of layers of paint. Because the show included a light sculpture, it reminded me that I wanted to photograph Adela Andea’s outdoor installation at the Art League of Houston, so I drove a few blocks to get there and photographed it.
Houston artist Wendy Wagner is pictured with her friend Olga at Darke Gallery. Wendy is facing serious health issues, and truly inspires all with her positive attitude and new works on paper. The art associates who work at Anya Tish Gallery located at 4411 Montrose in Houston. The final two photos were shot at M Squared Gallery in the Houston Heights.
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.

Yesterday I photographed these people at Houston Gay Pride 2014. Five of them I have photographed previously, including the idiot preachers who were saying things so explicitly sexual and disgusting that I can’t repeat any of it here. “Petite Tattooed Girl” acquired most of her ink in the last 12 months. This year instead of the usual insufferable heat, it rained on and off. Look for more photos tomorrow morning.

The Houston Heights is a neighborhood with its own commercial district located on 19th street. The merchants there stage several events each year to generate traffic. Last night they had Jazz bands and a few offered free wine at their businesses. Food trucks were parked nearby. After about 6:30 PM our wickedly hot summer weather becomes tolerably hot, but it doesn’t matter because everyone is used to it.
Comicpalooza is a science fiction and fantasy expo. It offers participants an escape from reality. Most of those in costume were young women, although a few guys came dressed up along with their girlfriends.
