While checking out the Second Saturday at Sawyer Yards, I had the honor of meeting Ms. Tania Botelho a Visual Artist. Ms. Botelho is a married, (sorry guys) and has one dog. When I asked Tania her advice for aspiring artist she answered, “Believe in your work, do not feel down with critics, do not feel vain with praise and be obstinate as art will demand a lot of work from you!!”
“Art is my weapon and I want to use it as a way to speak for the minorities that can’t speak or don’t know how to do it for themselves.”
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.
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.
Sunday, March 26th I headed out to Houston’s 4th Annual Kite Festival. I had previously thought…a kite festival? fun? maybe? Until I went the first time!! What a blast to see all the people and their families having good, old fashion fun and enjoying the outdoors!! Everyone truly seemed to be having a great time! Tons of brightly colored kites all around you and both little ones and big kids (like me), zipping around with their kites (hopefully) airborne, great, local entertainment, cowboys and butterfly people on stilts walking around, food trucks, vendor booths, crafts for the kids, dancing contests, you name it!
Thank you for visiting and sharing in the fun!
