Enid Street Gallery


Keys to the Door: Owner, director, curator and lensman Felix Sanchez.

What%26rsquo;s Hanging: The latest entry into the weekend-only gallery scene is Enid Street, an art space open Saturdays (1 to 5 pm) and by appointment, brought to you by Houston photog Felix Sanchez, who combines living and curatorial space in his gleaming Gavalume structure. Enid Street holds court in a gentrifying hood minutes from mainstream Heights art corridors. Planned as a venue for his photography, as well as works by other hometown talents, Sanchez%26rsquo;s inaugural view showcases portraits of four highly regarded Texas artists, alongside examples of their work: sculptor/furniture designer Tara Conley (famed for her droll Bronze Bunny, currently installed as part of Sculpture for New Orleans, maquette shown left); anime painter/video mistress/toy maker Wendy Wagner; Omar Perez of the towering shoe sculptures; and Thedra Cullar-Ledford, whose current series of oversized paintings of dolls are compelling, albeit disturbing (Saturdays, December 4, 11, and 18.) 1504 Enid St., 713.774.1890. info@felixsanchez.com.
