The Market @ Sawyer Yards
Saturday, Dec. 10 11 am - 5 pm.
A new outdoor market in the courtyard of Houston's largest artist enclave! It's also Second Saturday Open House at the studios, so art & gifts await you! More information at the Sawyer Yards website.
Houston, Texas, is full of art and full of artists. Given its reputation and its location, that may come as a surprise.
We are also a city with plenty of street art, as you can see by Googling "graffiti" or "outdoor mural," or by reading blogs like this. In this day of social media, our walls show up in almost everyone's Instagram feed. But I have to say, to me it never gets old.
Houston's latest installation is meant to enhance yet another artist studio development by the Deal brothers (I can't help but get a kick of that). This is the firm behind the conversion of multiple industrial buildings in Houston's Sawyer Street / I-10 corridor into leased studio spaces. Judging by the prices and the occupancy rate, these guys are one step ahead of the marketplace.
Hey! We've got a lot of creative people here! The thing that always amazes me is the quality of work these artists produce. Show after show, we see professional, distinctive, mind-blowing art and crafts. It's a creative hotbed.
To celebrate the completion of the Silos at Sawyer Yard (60,000 sq ft in traditional warehouse flex space), several artists showed their stuff on the brick wall just adjacent. All distinctive, all gorgeous. We are all the beneficiaries - another place to take a selfie!
Art Wall 2016 included works by the following amazing artists:
Jessica Rice Art
Luisa Duarte Art
Michael C. Rodriguez
Pilot FX Crew
Royal McGee Art
