Heist in the Heights
is actually a super-catchy title for the unveiling of privately owned works that are entering the after-market because of right-sizing or moving away. The organizers are being very hush-hush about the who’s who of famous artists, but it will all be revealed at the big voilà event on Saturday. One of the curators, Linda Clarke, tells us it’s an eclectic array of objects — “There should be something for everyone” — and collectors will find the artworks affordable. Clarke’s fellow curators are Thomas Mason, Gus Kopriva and Heidi Vaughan, so expect more than a few “wow” pieces, ranging from archaeological objects to ultra-contemporary.
Noon to 10 p.m. August 5. Continuing Noon to 5 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. August 6-26. Clarke & Associates, 301 East 11th. For information, call 713-254-2998 or visit clarkeassoc.com
