Event: Art gallery day

We tried A lovely veggie eatery, Pepper Tree Veggie Cuisine. Probably the best veg place I've been to in Houston.

We went to the Menil Collection to see the new-ish exhibitions:
Ancestors of the Lake: Art of Lake Sentani and Humboldt Bay, New Guinea

Upside Down : Arctic Realities
Be ready to put on little white booties to walk around the white room.. the wooden chains and masks were a definite highlight.

Contemporary Art Museum, Houston
We saw avideo/audio installationwhich was video installation art-which is something don't quite understand. Just as a video installation artist might be disinterested in my works on paper. What excites us is the familiar?

Museum of fine Arts, Houston for the Titian exhibition.
More classical art from the MFAH and the NGA. We also joined MFAH so we will get to attend the member's parties and given early previews of the touring exhibitions--pretty exciting to become a member of a museum. yay!

That's the gist of our art day this past Saturday.
