“Babes, Food, Rock & Roll” The Art of Browncoat solo exhibition

Opening: December 5th 6pm – 11pm

Please join us for a night of Babes, Food, and Rock & Roll to celebrate the amazing art of East Ends Very own Browncoat!

The man they call Browncoat, or alternatively, DJ Twinkle-Toes, is a graphic artists and DJ here in Houston. His work is pop art at its finest, mixing almost photo-realistic faces with cartoonish hair and clothing in his figures. It’s a mixture of toy store packaging mixed with communist propaganda that instantly grabs the eye and doesn’t let go. Much of his inspiration comes from his wife, and you can see her face peering out of many of pieces recreated with loving detail. He’s been a regular gallery exhibitor for the last ten years, having worked with Talento Bilingual de Houston, War House Gallery, Summer Street, and his second home at East End Studio Gallery.

 

Día de los Muertos in the East End 2015

“Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in the East End”
Celebrating life through the arts…

Opening Reception: October 30th 6-9 pm
Closing Reception: November 13th, 2015, 6-9 pm

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead in English) focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have passed on. This celebration of life takes place on November 1, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day (November 2). Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased. Scholars trace the origins of the modern Mexican holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl.

We continue the tradition of honoring our ancestors and remembering our loved ones by celebrating their life through art. Please bring a picture, memento or something you would like to leave honoring a loved one that has passed.
