Yo Quiero Fresh Art @ DiverseWorks

The last few weeks have been really crazy, Michelle Ellsworth's The Objectification of Things, The FireSale Gala and I just wanted to make a quick mention about the Happy Hour that we had a few weeks ago.

The Fresh Arts Happy Hour, Yo Quiero Fresh Art, came and went but it was a fantastic time! Lots of new faces were here at DiverseWorks as well as many long time supporters of the Houston Arts Community!

I had the pleasure of meeting Mary Vaughan, the new Public Relations Coordinator at Talento Bilingue de Houston, Kristy Phillips from Emperial, Lori Freese from Freese Media Group and lots more.

It was great to see Sean Boyd from Opera in the Heights, Lindsay Kayser from Mercury Baroque, Leigh from Dominic Walsh, Crystal Benavides and Jerome Vielman from the Houston Arts Alliance, Jennifer Decker from Mildred's Umbrella, Meredith from Broadway Across America, David Lake, John Devine, Jenni Rebecca Stephenson from Spacetaker, Amber Raley from KTRU, David Tong, Jennifer Watson, Karen Niemier and Erin Nies.

Plus, Angie Smith talked to me about a new website for artists that will be launching soon. Stay tuned for more details!

In case you missed the event, here is a little recap...

Plus, here is the performance of Michelle Ellsworth at the Happy Hour!

Special Thanks to Mandy Graessle, Executive Director of the Fresh Arts Coalition! She put together a fantastic event! I know she couldn't have done it without the help of Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Zapp's, Dish Houston, Tequila Distinguido, Houston Modern Luxury, and EMG Images.

Make sure to check out what's happening at Fresh Arts!
