Later I will probably have some thoughts about the Houston Fine Art Fair to share. I might even have a few pieces of art to discuss. But it's hard. I was speaking to Carrie Schneider last night, and she made what I thought was a very true comment--the art that you remember from a show like this tends to be the most gimmicky. A piece that is subtle, or requires contemplation to get, or that must be understood on multiple levels doesn't stand a chance next to a shiny bronze teddy bear with a skateboard (which I'll show in a subsequent post). There were a few things that fall into the category of easily overlooked that I want to call attention to. But not now.
What's the other purpose of going to an art fair? To check out the peeps, natch. So here are some art fair peoples.
