The View Through My Lens:13

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Texas Contemporary Art Fair opening night, thanks to Houston Cadillac.  They treated me like a VIP and culturally enriched me at the same time. ;)
The TCAF event was a huge success with over 3,000 attendees.  Here are a few pictures from my night:

On the top right, Alison Schnik's "Black Flowers", on the bottom left, Kelly O'Conner's "Rise and Fall" exhibit, on the bottom right, Nicolas Africano sculptures.
Here are a few more shots from the night- including a shameless self-y:

On the top right, the VIP lounge was decorated with red umbrellas and exercise balls for seating.  Very contemporary.  On the bottom right, a sculpture entitled "Layer Cake" and on the bottom right, a work from the Pool NYC Gallery.  Can anyone help with the artist name? I'd love to give credit but forgot to record the name.

In other news, I recently made a stop at Memorial Antiques & Interiors, as I like to do often-  you may remember me mentioning the store in my last post- what can I say? It's good for my soul. One of my favorite booths is curated by Sally Wheat, of Sally Wheat Interiors.  The two pictures on the left are from her booth.  Isn't the contemporary, playful vibe so refreshing?

And lastly, my iPhone 5 finally showed up in my mailbox, after being backordered for a month.  That's what I get for not standing in line at 3 am the day of the release!

 I'll say, it's worth the wait!  This thing is so light and seems a million times faster than my old phone.  Did you see this HILARIOUS SNL episode about the iphone 5?  It cracks me up & is worth a watch:

Have a fab day, friends!!
