Houston has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.
Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around South Loop that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Walker and Maria Williamson
I have always had an interest in photography and introduced my wife to it years ago. We had only been able to explore it as a hobby until we were both laid off from a company that we had dedicated almost 15 years of our lives to only to have our jobs outsourced out of the country. Read more>>
