Houston Heights is becoming a center for arts. The eclectic mix of homes and shops draws people with artistic flair. Mich Cohen wrote the following post on our monthly art happening.
The hip, the cool, the original Houston Arts Market is ready for the holidays starting Saturday, November 7
On Saturday, November 7, the First Saturday Arts Market kicks off the holiday shopping season in The Heights with work from dozens of artisans, jewelers, craftsmen and musicians from all over the greater Houston area on view.
Founded in March 2004, the First Saturday Arts Market has proven there is room among the thriving art galleries in Houston for a monthly arts market. Patrons strolling among 40 canopied tents will find everything from gigantic abstract paintings to hand cut stainless steel flowers, original hand-cast silversmith pendants and hand carved mesquite statues. Virtually every art medium and style is represented monthly from artists living in Houston, Austin, Brenham and occasionally from Louisiana.
The featured entertainment for November is multi-award-winning vocalist Myrna Sanders
who will take the stage at 4 p.m. Sanders currently performs not only as a solo artist, but also with her Janis Joplin Tribute Band, Kozmic Pearl, with Love Street Light Circus, and a new original project called STEMM. Citing influences from Linda Ronstadt, Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin and even Robert Plant, expect to hear a wide assortment from this talented lady who can be seen around southeast Texas on any given night or day.
Located on the Wind Water Gallery parking lot at 548 West 19th Street, the First Saturday Arts Market is open for the holidays from 11 a.m – 6 p.m. on November 7 and December 5. The First Saturday Arts Market is Houston’s only monthly outdoor fine arts event.
