Bayou City Art Festival Downtown 2014

Bayou City Art Festival Downtown 2014, a two-day celebration with some 300 national and international juried fine and pop visual artists, debuts Bayou City after Dark on Saturday, a nighttime continuation of the fun with concerts and cocktails. The artists, who work in a variety of mediums including photography, sculpture, clay, mixed-media, jewelry and painting, include Ella Richards. This year’s featured artist, Richards doesn’t draw or paint; she cuts. She created the festival’s poster art (an image of several women in black dresses) by cutting away sections of the paper. Some of Houston’s most popular food trucks will be on site.

10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Hermann Square, 901 Bagby. For information, call 713‑521-0133 or visit artscolonyassociation.org. $15.
Sat., Oct. 11, 10 a.m.-9:30 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 12, 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m., 2014
