Saturday Afternoon Art Events

As it was close to Christmas many of the Houston art galleries had an open house on Saturday afternoon instead of in the evening as they usually do.  April Murphy is shown in front of her whimsical pet paintings.  Please like her page “AEM Gallery” on facebook.  April says her work is all about happiness.  Later there was a performance art show at Lawndale Art Center. Kiki Maroon produces and performs in burlesque shows.  One of her recent productions is Kiki’s Sordid Sideshow.  She is usually in character.  You can find many images of her in costume on flickr.  A mermaid was cooling off in a tub of water because it was 80F on this warm December afternoon in the South.  The lovely kissing booth girl was fun to chat with, but I did not take her up on the kiss, which would be scored.

  3. Have to admit, the burlesque performer caught my attention (what? I really like popcorn) but the idea of “competitive kissing” made me swallow my gum (interferes with popcorn anyway). Love how you incorporate people with their art or artistic interests! Nice collection, sir.

  4. I think I forgot to hit “post.” At the risk of being redundant … Those green plumes of a skirt and tight black top – I love it!

    Nice set there Ron. I’m curious as to what a competitive kissing booth is! They don’t have them here.

    • It was part of a performance art piece, so not totally on the level.

  6. I signed up with AEM Gallery on Facebook 🙂 The shot I like the best…is the young lady in green and black and fuzzy boats 🙂

    • April, from AEM is wonderful. I hope you are able to buy one of her pet paintings for your home.
