Texas Art Asylum has transitioned smoothly from its cramped Houston Avenue quarters to its spacious 6,000 square foot EaDo warehouse, which officially opened to the public at 1719 Live Oak Street on Feb. 2.

Hundreds of arts and craft aficionados joined in on a Grand ReOpening Celebration on last Saturday, which began with complimentary caricatures courtesy of Bonnie Blue and a ceremonial tree planting by TREEaDo.

An art and jewelry show featuring the work of dozens of Houston artists ran into the evening, as Saint Arnold Brewing Co. beers, Audio Telepathy's tunes and a ringing cash register set the stage.

"It was really fun . . . We got a good test of the space and traffic flow. And, even better, lots of the artists sold some work!" co-owner Ramona Brady tells CultureMap.
