The weekend was full of friends. I stopped by Elder Street Gallery to see the work of many of my friends. I got to see Alberto Godoy, Jonatan Lopez, Lacey Crawford, Sue Donaldson, Lorena Fernandez, Sorange Castillo, Shelley Shanks, Susan Goettsche, Alissa Fereday, and Martin de Vore, among many others. The artwork was wonderful, and the ambiance was a typical Houston summer evening at Elder Street, thanks to Terrence Boggs.
From there I headed out to the Frida Kahlo Gala for an evening of art, poetry, dance and Frida. There I saw Julie Zarate, Lizbeth Ortiz, Stephanie Guajardo, and Mitch Cohen, who also attended Elder Street. It was a very full event with food and drink to boot.
