Those in the know buy only from Meredith Long. Specializing in 19th and 20th century American art, the Long gallery is the oldest gallery in Houston and among the most prestigious. Most days are appointment early, but check their web site for the Thursday evening openings. Very classy place, but you probably need a foundation and a weekend house in Aspen to afford the merchandise.
Houston has nothing to be ashamed of in its primary fine art facility. We may not be New York, but you can still see a Van Goh, a Mondrian, a Picasso, a Rembrandt you name it any afternoon of the week. For members, there are great afternoon lectures to introduce shows or exciting new acquisitions. Also don't neglect the MFA movie program, here's a place to see the films that get missed by the other arthouse theaters in town.
You just never know what you might see when you walk into the CAM, and for free! (or a donation, come on, supporting the arts is good for your karma) There are often mixed media exhibits, and usually something different upstairs than downstairs. The gift shop may be overpriced, but you can find some of the most unique items in town. You will definitely see something you've never thought of before, good for your grey matter.
There is some neat stuff in this art park, but it's not very well situated or marketed. I wish they would add more pieces and maybe some more pathways... the way it is now seems a bit like an afterthought. But of course all art is worth taking a look at and on a nice day this can be an interesting and entertaining diversion for an afternoon.
I've dealt with the owner a few times and she will always work with me, the service is very good. They have lots of silver jewelry, some set with precious stones. The prices are pretty reasonable and like I said they'll always work with you if they know you. I'll always be a regular customer here.
This place has been around for a while and was recomended to me by a couple of friends. I am a seemingly easy target as a young female, but I didn't feel like I was being talked down to or taken advantage of. My car was ready when they said it would be, and the cost was reasonable compared to other repair shops.
I love how convenient this dentists office is to my work, located in the 3555 Timmons building in Greenway Plaza. Leaves me little excuse for not getting to the dentist when he's right upstairs. The staff and Dr. Sexton are all very nice and calming, even for dento-phobes. The office is very nice and modern, with tv's in every exam room.
I have seen Doctor Davidson for a little over a year and have recommended him to a couple of my friends. His has a very good bedside manner, always very attentive and he never seems to be in a hurry. He has a very calming demeanor. The nursing staff is very capable and good about returing calls promptly most of the time.
Quirky shop in the Montrose, like a Spencers inspired head shop. They have great hours, interesting party gifts. Also inhabited by local tattoo parlor patrons. Home decor for bachelor pads, spicy video collections included. College town feel to this independently owned Montrose staple.
You can get a great deal inside the loop at this North Shepherd gym. Without having to join a gym with a membership in the thousands, this small gym has plenty of room for its rather modest membership. You won't find tvs or free towels, but what you will find is a basic gym with plenty of free weights and plenty of exercise machines that hit all your spots. A couple of aerobics programs but I've mostly stuck to the weights and the machines.
