First Saturday Arts Market open evenings during summer
The First Saturday Arts Market will be switching to evening hours this summer starting from 6-10 p.m. Saturday, June 2 at 548 W. 19th St. at Lawrence Street.
This will be the First Saturday Arts Market's eighth year after many past years of success with evening shows.
White Linen Night will take place Aug. 4 and will invite 19th Street merchants to sell their art and wares at the market.
"White Linen Night in the Heights is part of Houston Art & Culture, an arts nonprofit focused on inspiring and mentoring emerging artists," said Mitch Cohen, founder and manager of First Saturday Arts Market, in the press release. "The 19th Street merchants invitation to set up on the closed portion of the street is a great idea, keeping the atmosphere local and of course reflecting the arts background of our neighborhood."
The featured artist for June will be jewelry designer Hege Nolop.
"My creations are handmade and one-of-a-kind, with unique vintage elements carefully handpicked from antique markets in France," Nolop said in the press release. "Each little treasure has a history of its own. In designing my creations, I combine vintage elements with modern material, creating eclectic, elegant and playful pieces, recalling days gone by."
The Chenoa Farrell Band will open the art market with a performance at 6 p.m. June 2.
It's a Wrap mobile food truck and Mr. Zrake's Cakes will be on site.
This event is open to the public all year. For more information, visit www.firstsaturdayartsmarket.com or call 713-802-1213.
