Just northeast of Downtown, a new hub for creative works is blossoming thanks to privately owned art galleries descending upon the neighborhood comprised of loft style apartments, studios and art galleries such as the newly opened District Art Gallery.
The District Art Gallery recently held its grand opening for a host of Houston’s socially conscious and fashionable young professionals. The atmosphere was entertaining as the live violinist played along to the latest hits while guests enjoyed libations from the open bar. District Art Gallery, the co-founded venture of artist and entrepreneur Moriah Standberry, is home to a progressive group of artists that include Ryan Williams, Latonia Allen, Shawn Artis, Trazail Tucker, Shelbie Nicole and Moriah Alise. District Art Gallery is a contemporary gallery for both emerging and mid-career artists from Houston and beyond who believe in utilizing their creativity to highlight the truth of their realities.
Each of the artists’ collections were handpicked for the I AM, WE ARE exhibition which can be best described as bold and alluring where each stroke tells an honest story of self-reflection and personal perceptions of their environment. The 15-piece exhibit is spread throughout the spacious gallery, which is equally inviting as it is beautiful. The abstract art allows art enthusiasts to interpret the works through their own eyes. The space will also double as an intimate event space for creatives and entrepreneurs within Houston looking for a unique venue to host events. The current exhibit will run through March 15, 2018 during normal operating hours Tuesday-Friday from 12-8pm or by appointment be sure to stop by and check out one of Houston’s soon to be staples in the art realm.
