A couple of artist receptions that I would love to see but alas – it’s first Saturday and I have plans. If you can go, send me your thoughts and photos, I’ll post them here!

Archway Gallery presents UBIQUITOUS

In my column last week I introduced you to Liz Spencer and Gene Hester- 2 fine artists that have collaborated with glass. Read my column here.

Opening reception is 5-8 p.m. Saturday, November 5 at Archway Gallery, 2305 Dunlavy. There will be complimentary valet parking and light refreshments, and the exhibition will be on view through December 1. Find more details online at

Now this next one I am really disappointed I can’t make – Lindsay Peyton is a great friend and awesome artist. These large oil paintings depict all the wonderful places I got to visit with Lindsay in Seattle last summer.  Oh, you bet I wrote about that trip, read that column here.

Unconscious Conscious

Saturday, Nov. 5th  5 – 7 p.m.

The Jung Center of Houston, Texas
5200 Montrose Blvd, Houston, Texas 77006

Unconscious Conscious

Unconscious Conscious with Lindsay Peyton

From the invite: “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” C. G. Jung.

That quote was the inspiration for artist Lindsay Peyton’s upcoming exhibit entitled “Unconscious Conscious.” Her large oil paintings of interior spaces – which the artist says depict “places that provide us sanctuary and refuge” — will be on display from Wednesday, Nov. 2 through the end of the month.

An opening reception is slated for 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Jung Center of Houston, 5200 Montrose Blvd. in the heart of the Houston Museum District.

Art will be paired with brews by Town City Brewing!
