ART LOVERS SHOWED the new director of the Glassell, Paul Coffey, a warm welcome at the annual benefit and auction, hosted at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston's art school on Montrose.


The event homaged the Keep Austin Weird slogan, celebrating the uniqueness and creativity of Houston's art community with a psychedelic array of decor. It's the first big Glassell benefit since pre-Covid, and hundreds of supporters were thrilled to pack the party tent erected on the Brown Foundation Plaza outside of the school.

Dinner was a flavorful spread courtesy of City Kitchen, and a stupendously successful silent auction touted pieces by Glassell faculty, alumni and other local artists. Attendees could bid on and purchase paintings, photos, sculptures, jewelry and more.

Closing out the night was DJ Druw, who spun tunes until the crowd moved upstairs to the Glassell rooftop garden, where a funky after-party was soundtracked by ukulele player Ryan Suzuka.

Boutique Midrise Adds To Pedestrian Appeal Of Sought-After, Inner Loop Neighborhood

WITH ITS INAUGURAL set of residents newly moved in, Pelican Builders’ mid-rise condominium Westmore at 2323 W Main Street in Upper Kirby is already seeing the blossoming of a tight-knit community. Designed by Houston-based Mirador Group the Westmore is the first new condominium product to be introduced to the in-demand, inner loop neighborhood in more than three years. And with remaining two-bedroom homes starting at $895,000, it’s a remarkable value for this increasingly pricey area, where condos can easily climb to several million dollars and more.
