This will be an art sale for the people, and not necessarily for the big-baller collector.
On Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28, more than 1,000 art works, some for as little as five dollars, will be available for purchase during the Museum of Fine Arts Houston's Glassell School of Art Sale.
The 2011 version will be a bit different because it's doubling as an ode to Suzanne Manns, who is saying peace out from her decade-long stint as Glassell School faculty chair to focus on teaching and her personal art making (on the latter tip, exhibit goers may remember Manns' "The Truth About Trees," a solo show in September/October 2010 at Nau-haus Gallery that featured her "metapatterned" works on paper).
The event, which enters its 22nd year, will also showcase a juried exhibition on the first floor of Glassell, 5101 Montrose Blvd. Manns, along with Glassell teachers Charlotte Cosgrove and Ken Mazzu, judged the show that opens from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday and remains on display from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
Those listed hours is also when the sale takes place for the general public.
