Featured artist for this August, Leroy LeFlore resides in
Galveston and has displayed his work at various galleries
and during ArtWalks for the past thirty years. His favorite
themes are Galveston Island inspired landscapes,
seascapes, and neighborhood scenes. He also periodically
diverts into maritime themes from past centuries. LeFlore
works primarily in oil and watercolor. This particular show
will feature new works, many that have not been shown
before, including several recent “
en plein air
” paintings.

Open Wed.-Sat. 11am-4pm or by appointment
Giant features a memorable panoply of challenging art
and new design. The artists of Giant and visual+actual
have produced and brought together a variety of modern
painting, sculpture, drawings, and furniture. Paintings
on dibond by artists Esso and O.T. bring fuzzy and crisp
color shapes into perfect juxtaposition, creating tough
neo-geo work ideal for the modern world. Marion
Mercer begins her drawings on multi-media paper with
acrylic geometric blocks and finishes with an India ink
line image. Owner-gallerist Milton Ausherman shows
the latest of his delicate, painted wooden sculpture and
furniture reinterpretations, from hairpin leg desks and
coffee tables to chalkboard sideboards and dining tables.
Selected works by other artists.
