Houston Artist Wendy Wagner launchs soft sculpture line - Qwerkys

Holiday Shopping Days at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston include the launch of Qwekys, soft handcrafted sculptures by local artist Wendy Wagner. Based on characters from her paintings and sculptures, Qwekys include the whimsical Miss Pretty (a shy octopus), the offbeat Froggee (a make-up wearing boy frog), and the suave Mr. Look at Me (a show-off based on Wagner’s husband and business partner). Wagner will be at the museum for a Qweky’s Artist Talk at 6:30 p.m., but you can shop from 5:30 to 8 p.m. 5216 Montrose Boulevard. For information, call 713-284-8250 or visit www.camh.org. Free.
Thu., Dec. 4, 6:30 p.m., 2008
