fifthward hotel

3)       Fifth Ward Hotel: 1206 Nance

The former Fifth Ward Hotel building at 1206 Nance Street is a near-miraculous survivor of Victorian commercial architecture in Houston. Built in 1883 as a hotel, it was three stories tall with load bearing masonry walls of locally produced brick and cast iron columns supporting timber framed floors. By 1915 the hotel had closed and the building saw a succession uses. During the 1950s the two upper floors were removed because the masonry walls were near the point of collapse and the remainder of the historic building was concealed behind sheet metal siding. After a disastrous electrical fire in 1993 the last owner abandoned it. The structure was sensitively rehabilitated in 2002 by Rice Construction Company in consultation with historic preservationist Anna Mod.

In 2003 Michael Morton, AIA of m ARCHITECTS reconfigured the interior for use as an architecture studio and art gallery.

This Year m Architects will feature artist Sara Moons

Sara Moons is an abstract expressionist artist and an art educator, living in Montgomery, Texas. She lives and works from her lakefront home studio, lovingly dubbed Whimsy Lake, with her husband and three children. Sara works with a variety of mediums, primarily in acrylic and oil pastel. She is inspired by the spontaneity of children, the wonder of nature, and the power of music.

david adickes 9)       David Adickes Sculpture Studio: 2401 Nance

From KUHT in Houston "To be president, they say you need a big head. Inspired after a visit to Mount Rushmore, Houston artist David Adickes decided that the only way to appreciate the details of the facial features of those monumental carvings up close was to create his own. He sculpted 43 enormous busts – one of each American president – and they are all on view outside his studio in Texas."

Explore Broad & High for fun Video.

David Adickes will have his Sculpture Studio open - visitors can get face-to-face with his giant presidential heads! Great photo ops

Over the years, the building housed a variety of tenants, but it had stood vacant for 20 years before Artspace and Avenue CDC provided services leading to the Elder Street Artist Lofts.

ArtCrawlHouston2018 is happy to include notsouH


"Owner Jim Pirtle's iconic downtown bar, music and art/performance venue Notsuoh (Houston spelled backwards) has by this time achieved a legendary, almost mythical reputation for weirdness. One of the employees we spoke with called the place an electric art dive, while Pirtle himself says the space is the result of a marriage between a historical building more than 100 years old with the collection of a thrift-store junkie. Just some of the wonders to behold include old bicycles hanging from the rafters, nude female mannequins turned into works of art, a knight's armor, and an old piano encrusted with what appears to be some kind of gems, remains of a stained glass window, dominoes, and assorted other trinkets. ..." via Houston Press

The hosting of art events and representation and support of other artists started with Houston ArtCrawl 2010 as part of Hardy & Nance Studios, jump starting the many incredible events that JoMar Visions enthusiastically continues to organize, focusing on other hidden emerging talents and also well known established names within the art community. JoMar Visions was awarded best Houston Art gallery 2014 and 2015 by the A-list voters.

"JoMar Visions was born from wanting to see beauty and happiness in people's lives, from wanting to see dreams into reality. Whether they are our photography clients or the artists we represent, the people involved in the events we organize, the musicians and even the bartenders or any of our guests and art patrons, we try to make dreams come true and bring beauty into people's lives."

After 5 years running from another studios building, the JoMar Visions team has made a dream come true in late 2015 and has got now its own studios and gallery building in a great location at the Houston Northwest Crossing area.
