Artist Taft McWhorter, recently named one of Houston's Top 10 Painters by the Houston Press arts blog Art Attack, has some advice for fans planning to visit #SummerSeries. (And yes, with some 100 artists spread out through two large complexes, you will need a plan if you want to see everything.) “You can start at either building, but try and leave time to visit every artist if possible,” McWhorter tells us. “With the close proximity of Winter Street and Silver Street Studios, you should be able to visit all 100 artists in three hours. If you want to be more strategic than that, you can preview the list of artists that are participating and look up their websites before hand.
One hundred participating artists participating means there will literally be thousands of original works on display, including paintings, sculptures, glasswork, fiber art and more. “The interesting thing … is that you seldom have the opportunity to see this amount of artwork in one place, meet the artists in person and see their workspace. By visiting the artists' workspace, you immediately get a better sense of who the artist is and it helps you understand their work.” #SummerSeries is sponsored, in part, by the Houston Press.
