In Mexico 43 students were kidnapped and murdered. People have taken to the streets to demand change to a corrupt system, one in which the drug cartels control much of the Government.

In Hong Kong people take to the streets to demand a voice in their Government.

In America people all over the country have come together to protest the failure of grand juries to prosecute police officers that murdered unarmed black teens and adults.
All over the world people have taken to the streets to demand that their voices be heard.

The job of the artist is to reflect on the world around them to show future generations the world around us. To reflect on our thoughts, emotions and the events that make up our society today.

Michael Wooten and East End Studio Gallery would like to invite you to participate in our Art of Revolution show. How will you show future generations the events that are happening now?

“Diabolical” Group Exhibition

Diabolical Art Exhibition

“Diabolical” Group Exhibition
Opening: October 3, 2014, 6-9PM
Closing:  October 10, 2014, 6-9PM

Houston tattoo artist Gabriel Massey has partnered with local East End Studio Gallery to present Diabolical: Mephistophelean and Arcane Imagery from the Tattoo World. Drawings and paintings from over 60 local and international tattoo artists will be displayed.  “My inspiration for the show was the various depictions of the Devil in classic American tattooing,” commented Gabriel Massey, curator of the group show. “Contemporary tattooers still refer to the vintage designs of the Hot Stuff devil, Baphomet, and Krampus, and these bold images are ripe for reinterpretation. With Halloween around the corner, the time seemed right, and everything just fell into place. I’m very excited to bring the local tattoo community together for this event, and look forward to seeing work from my colleagues from as far away as Japan and Norway. This is a unique opportunity to see original work from some of the finest talent in tattooing.”

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

Opening Reception: October 24th 6-9 pm
Closing Reception: November 2, 2014, 3 – 6 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.

“Steampunk” Group Exhibition

Opening:  Friday, Nov.  14, 2014, 6-9PM
Closing:  Friday, Nov. 21, 2014 6-9PM

East End Studio Gallery presents “Steampunk”.  Steampunk is a literary sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy that usually features steam-powered machinery.  It is most often depicted in an American “Wild West” or British Victorian setting from the 1800’s.  Popularized by the fiction works of H.G. Wells, Mary Shelly and Jules Vernes, Steampunk has inspired aesthetics in the fields of movies, fashion, art, literature and even architecture.  We invite you to come and see how East End Studio artists have interpreted this genre of science fiction fantasy.  Steampunk gear and costumes are highly encouraged!
