Houston is known for its diverse and expansive arts community. So vast, at times, that it may feel difficult to navigate without a little guidance. For those looking to discover local artists and galleries in Houston but don’t know where to start, Explore Houston Arts offers a helping hand.
With more than 25 years of experience in the art business, tour guide Judy Youens has turned her focus to educating the next generation of art lovers. Enjoy small, intimate gatherings at select galleries with several tour options. Get a taste of the arts with just one night, or buy a package and enjoy three or five nights. Each evening includes stops at two area galleries and discussions with the gallery owner and artist when available.
Tours begin at the first gallery at 6:30 p.m. and last roughly two hours. If time permits, the tour ends at a local wine bar to carry on a more in-depth discussion of the experience. Private group tours are available, but must be arranged at least one week in advance of the target date. Rates vary based on group size and venue.
