Aspire To Inspire

INSPIRATION OVERLOAD: HOUSTON FINE ARTS FAIR

This weekend I took a trip to downtown Houston to check out the Houston Fine Arts Fair to get some artistic inspiration and get involved in the vast art scene that is happening in Houston.

I was pleased to see a lot of different work than I saw when I went to the show in Los Angeles this year.  To no surprise, there were a lot of galleries from Mexico, South America and Miami that featured many artists work that I hadn’t seen before.  I was pleased to find an amazing gallery from Mexico City, Patricia Conde Galeria, that featured very unique photography and work from one of the leading ladies of the Surrealism movement.  I was educated on one of Harlem’s top African American women artists, Faith Ringgold, by NYC’s famous ACA Galleries.  And I was delighted to find Houston’s own Robert Pruitt, who was named artist of the year by the organization.

Here is a look at my favorite pieces of work from the fair.
