Coastal Galleries

If you are headed for a road trip through Texas or looking for a reason to visit a quaint town on the coast, wood/metal/glass a new exhibition at the Rockport Center for the Arts opens this Saturday October 25th at 5pm. My partner Gary Schott is among the metal artists featured in the show.

Another coastal gallery, Design Works located in Galveston, I am happy to report is still standing. Gary was scheduled to have his first solo show there in May of 2009 however since hurricane Ike we've had no correspondence with the gallery owners Steve and Elisabeth. Luckily I ran in to them at Lawndale's annual fundraiser last night. While the gallery suffered severe damage, taking on seven feet of water, the art survived. Steve and Elisabeth plan to have a homecoming exhibition in the coming months. The show will go on.
