UH 2007 School of Art Annual Student Exhibition

Tonight the Art Dept. at University of Houston is having their student show opening at the Blaffer Gallery. The opening is from 7 to 9 in the Fine Arts building on the UH central campus (Entrance 16 off of Cullen, near Cullen & Elgin).

In addition to the works shown in the gallery proper, tonight all four floors of the building will be opened up for touring the studios of the various disciplines and media within the department.

Finally a gas price I can live with

If only it were true.

Sarah G. captured this fantastic shot of our convention center, big red pipes and all. I’ve always loved the purely ornamental industrial components of the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Seen on The Consumerist site today, I love this shot of Dean’s Credit Clothing ( 316 Main St.) by Flickr photographer en_el_houston.

There is something about old skool signs that just makes me giddy. Other suggestions?

Attention Shutterbugs!!

Photo Houston: Cleveland the Flower Man

This shot of the Cleveland Turner, the Flower Man is such a cool look at one of Houston’s most colorful residents.
You can find Cleveland riding around the city on his (well-decorated) bicycle, scouring neighborhoods for treasures/junk to add to his art house.
If you haven’t been to his colorful abode (3317 Sampson St.) you seriously should check it out.

A bit of shameless self-promotion


“P@wn3d” by Chuck Ivy

I’ve currently got some of my photography hanging at on Westheimer two blocks west of Montrose as part of their “New Media Showcase.” My stuff is more or less straight photography mostly shot around Houston using a combination of digital and traditional techniques, but there’s also some digital art by Tim Chambers, and drawings and paintings by Jennifer Chen and Leesa Leva.

I think this show will only be up until the end of March, so check them out while you have a chance. (and most of the pieces are for sale as well, hint, hint.)

Photo contest at Houston Press

The Houston Press is running a year long photo contest for high school students wanting to break into the world of photography. Up for grabs? A $1000 scholarship (no mention of what school or institute will be involved). Contest rules are here. The Animals Gone Wild contest is still running at the Houston Zoo with channel 13 as well and will end on March 31.


Photo Houston: Green Houston Skyline

Proving he has more than fantastic ears, the superb eye of photographer deneyterrio brings you this really unique view of the Houston skyline we all know and love. It also brings a new twist on the stark blue skies we’re used to.

Join other Houston area photographers in the Houston Metblogs’ flickr group and show us the city through your eyes.
