Dear Pennies & Pens,

One of the cool things about living in Houston is the fact that it’s a diverse city with plenty of arts and culture events. Take Texas Contemporary for example.

Texas Contemporary is Houston’s leading contemporary and modern art fair that brings the country’s best galleries to the area’s discerning collector base.  Featuring a range of works and mediums, Texas Contemporary presents what is new in art as well as a focused representation of interests for this unique city.

I attended the opening night preview a few weeks ago and it was amazing! Held at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Texas Contemporary was made for art lovers.

The event features galleries from all over the world so the art you see is truly unique. No two pieces look the same even if it comes from the same gallery.

While at the event, I saw so many different pieces that inspired me. In particular, I fell in love with Federico Uribe’s work and pieces from Morgan Lehman gallery. Federico Uribe creates his pieces using bullets so it is a true sight to see!

I’ll admit the event could be slightly overwhelming at times since there were a variety of galleries & the space is so large. However, it was still fun to stroll past each gallery’s space and see the world from an artist’s point of view.
