This was a group show at the Spring Street Studios, one of three warehouses converted to artists studios.  It’s been a while since I have taken pictures at an art gallery opening.

What has been an unusually wet April gave way to a sunny, humid Sunday for the Houston Japan Festival.  There were lots of cosplayers and stands serving Japanese food.

All morning and right up through the end of the parade rain was hanging in the air.  A few drops fell, but the Art Car Parade was spared.  The Cadillac commercial vehicle is often parked on 19th street in the Houston Heights.  Volunteers use roller skates to get around because the car staging is spread out for over a mile.

These photos are from the 2015 Houston Art Car Parade with around 300 entrants in the show.  It’s as much or more about people and craziness as it is about the elaborately decorated cars.  This is the first set, I will publish more tomorrow.
