Peveto Gallery

2627 Colquitt St.

Houston, TX 77098


Map & Details>>

Even though outgoing McClain Gallery director Scott Peveto debuted his Peveto Gallery in March, the space — located in the old New Gallery building near the intersection of Kirby Drive and Richmond Avenue — has already been lauded by some locals as a heavy-hitting addition to the potent arts scene. In March, Peveto's "...Game On :)" opening salvo featured sculpture, photography and works on paper by folks like Alejandro Diaz, Renée Lotenero and Jason Villegas, while the gallery's inaugural foray into solo exhibitions showcased ink drawings and mixed-media works on paper by the late Hans Hoffman. Along with rotating exhibits, Peveto is also a "fine art resource management company" that focuses on acquiring art as well as doling out art-collection advice to individuals and corporations. The space is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

My Voice Nation Help

Recently Scott assaulted me which resulted in my vehicle being damaged. My husband has been working with scott for years, and scott has helped him a great deal. Recently scott has not been able to sell as much art to pay his bills and has resorted to throwing events to sustain his gallery. Scott openly admits his failure, in his bathroom there is a painting that says 'BLACKBALL' which he says he got an employee to make in order to remind him how his ex-wife has "blackballed" him in the houston art community. His openings are lucky if they attract more than a few people. When my husband decided he had enough of circling the drain, he decided to reevaluate their relationship and went to take his art back. Scott frustrated at his loss of a great artist decided to take his frustrations out on his husband and their vehicle. Besides the money he already owes the artist he is now refusing to pay for damages he caused to their vehicle...did i mention he did all this three days before our marriage. DO NOT WORK WITH HIM!
