Bayou City Artists...Part 1

Since the Festival is this weekend, I thought I'd share a bit about the other Houston artists that will be represented. Three of the artists, Chuck Brush (metal), Mark Cole (pastels), and Yu Cha Pak (watercolor), didn't have websites, so you'll have to research them on your own. As for the rest...

Coco Easterwood paints what's in her head...shadowy-eyed girls to abstracts to bicycles. She has her own Gallery on Washington Avenue, where she displays her works and does other "useful" things. If you're into aquatics, check out John Barber's metal fish sculptures. A craftsman for over 35 years, John has a sculpture degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. In addition to his art, he has done welding work for the HMNS.

Kim Enloe of My Mother's Inventions has a unique way of finding amazement in our beloved Houston concrete. Perhaps his work as residential builder/designer influenced his eye, or perhaps he just takes time to notice the little things. Far flung from her day-job as a webmaster, Margaret Miller paints Impressionist landscapes and abstracts full of life and color. Not too far flung, though...she spent her childhood wandering the halls of the National Gallery of Art in Wachington, D.C. and her college years at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Art, it seems, has always been a part of her.

Part 2 tomorrow. Cheers.
