Art is in the air in Houston. Attend the First Saturday Arts Market at 540 W. 19th St. on the first Saturday of the month and get a heavy dose of art. This event runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and with a motto like “Exercise, Eat Right, Buy Art,” you know it’s a ton of fun.
Still on the fence about going? Here are some reasons you should drop everything and attend the next market.
An Assortment of Fine Art
The First Saturday Art Market has been around since 2004, and since that time, it has built a reputation for bringing in some of the best artists in Texas. Artists showcase sculptures, photography, paintings, and handcrafted items. You can even find some jewelry at the market. In other words, if there is a type of art you want, it’s going to be here. If you’re not here, you’re missing out.
Talk to the Artists
Art events can be on the snooty side, but that’s not the case with this event. The artists are incredibly accessible and willing to talk to you about their pieces. You can learn what goes into the various works of art and even ask some questions. This makes the art feel more personal, and that, in turn, makes it even more fun to buy.
Art and food go together like wine and cheese. Houston has a great food truck scene, and some of the city’s best food trucks show up for the First Saturday Arts Market. You will find an assortment of people chowing down at the food trucks before going out and exploring the art.
Houston also has a great live music scene. You can find bands from all genres of music in the city, and you can also find those bands at the First Saturday Arts Market. If you like live music, it just makes sense to head to Historic Houston Heights on the first Saturday of the month.
The First Saturday Arts Market is so much fun, and Mike Calvert Toyota in Houston, Texas, is a blast as well. We don’t have pottery sitting around our showroom, but we do have the perfect Toyota for you to take home today. Stop by, take a car out for a spin, and then sign the paperwork. You’ll be out of here in time to go to the arts market.
