Houston Art Shows – Markets Dec. 2-9, 2017

Houston provides no shortage of opportunities for locals to find and buy great local art. What better time to buy than Christmas?

Texas Art Asylum is a must visit for anyone who creates. From doll parts to old photographs, fabrics and mechanical pieces, the store has a bit of everything. Some things can be found in old library cabinets, metal shelves, or laid out on tables but something is sure to inspire and make you want to create. As if a visit to the store isn’t enough stimulation on its own, they are also hosting a Stranger Things themed show on The show dates are Saturday, December 2nd 2-9pm and Sunday, December 3rd from 1-5pm, at 1719 Live Oak, Houston, Texas.
