Artfeel will present the public artwork “Mystical Senses” by Gaston Carrio. This six-ton sculpture lives at the base of the waterfalls on The Woodlands Waterway.
Artfeel performers include Harwood Taylor, director of Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, and soon to be the director of Ellio Fine Art, a new gallery opening in October in Houston. Upon visiting “Mystical Senses,” Taylor was reminded of a powerful experience he shared with his father, who was also a sculptor and a writer. He told a story about it featured on The Moth Radio Hour for their Father’s Day Special a few years ago. A longer version of the story was a TEDx University of Houston talk last year.
The Woodlands Arts Council will be giving away art pieces donated by festival artists for the Art Dash Party in April as a way of saying "thank you" for helping Artfeel grow. Artfeel creator and host Nickole Kerner Bobley, a local culture and arts writer, is joined by co-hosts Gideon Bustamante, aka “The Painter,” and David Deveau, who will perform in the show.
