Today’s featured Artist is Ms. Lynn Hogan. I was fortunate enough to meet Ms. Hogan at one of the recent “Second Saturdays” at Sawyer Yards in The Silos Studios.
Today I had the pleasure of entering the Russian General store in Houston, Texas and having the chance to sit down and speak with Mr. Alexander Kogan while his business partner, Ms. Anna Levitin tended to the business, they have shared for over 20 years! Ms. Levitin is a bit shy and didn’t wish to be photographed, although you’ll have to trust me that she is quite the attractive lady! Smart as a whip too according to Mr. Kogan! I think he feels a bit badly that she’s been taking on so much more than her fair share of the work load since he became ill as he mentioned his gratitude more than once toward Ms. Anna Levitin. Very touching to see these two friends in business together still after so many years. What a team!
Time for a photo “roundup”… it’s so unique to Houston to be able to have a bustling city atmosphere and then 3 minutes later see Longhorns – gotta love Houston! 🙂
I’d like to call my guests today the Queens of Glass! Meet Ms. Sally Pennington Moore, Artist and Owner of Three Dimensional Visions and Ms. Carol Simon, Artist of Carol Simon Studio. You’ll soon see why I want to call them Queens of Glass!!!
I like fun and whimsical….that is exactly what you will find in Diane Gelman’s studio at The Silos at Sawyer Yards in Houston, Texas at 1502 Sawyer Street, Studio 209, Houston, TX 77007 and did I mention mad talent? Yep…that too! 🙂
In the words of Stella Adler “Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one”. (Source: www.giostudioart.com)
“I attempt to construct intense personal moments masterfully created through mixed media artworks and sculptures. Wanting the viewer to imagine their own interpretation without being hindered where past and present fuse. Time and memory always play a key role. By applying abstraction, I want to amplify the astonishment of the spectator by creating compositions or settings that generate tranquil metaphors that leave traces and balances on the edge of recognition and separation.
What’s better on a hot, Houston day than being in cool air conditioning? Seeing great art with the A/C blowing! Here is a little overview of my visit to Sawyer Yards last “Second Saturdays”…. guess it’s art week here at Houston Photo Journey 🙂 ! It was just such a treat for the eyes and imagination that I had to take you with me!!!
