‪This is a beautiful art gallery on two levels. For me, it was like being in a "mini" Museum of Fine Arts Houston. Truly the nicest gallery in Houston outside of going to a major museum like MFAH.

I had read about the gallery in a magazine (or discovered it online) and made a note of it. My husband and I went this past Saturday. It was easy to find and the parking is great. I remember thinking, why had I not seen this gallery before as it is in the heart of Houston, and then I remembered, oh, during all the construction on Westheimer over the last two years, I was avoiding this section at all costs! Well, this area is all now nicely done with new streets.

We parked and went inside, to be greeted by a young man and a lady, asking if it was our first visit and I explained "yes" and how I had heard about it. They explained the first floor versus the second floor. Then, the young man went into detail about the artist on the first floor – Jimenez Deredia (from Costa Rica).

The first floor is where they typically do a large exhibit on an artist; the upstairs are multiple artists on display. We read about Dredia and were intrigued with his work. How he does what he does with marble is amazing. Also on the first floor, up at both corners, were two human sculptures by Marc Sijan from Serbia. They are both security guards, one seated and the other standing. They are so lifelike! When you get up close to them, you realize Sijan’s ability to form the human anatomy is incredible. Right down to the skins (veins, imperfections, freckles, hair). The guard clothing, whether shoes, a whistle and chain, badge, hat, glasses, are immaculate. I would love to have one of these “guys” at my front door.

Another artist that is amazing is Carole Feuerman who creates life sculptures, too. Her “theme” seems to be women swimmers. I was enchanted by a full size woman swimmer who (imagine) is sitting poolside. Her body, skin, toenails, water droplets, are all incredibly real! Right down to her nails and toenails that are in need of a manicure! (Who of us are not guilty of that!) Another life sculpture is of a woman swimmer meditating.

Okay, one more favorite artist – Mr. Brainwash!! (Love his name! His photo on their website makes me think of the beloved (RIP) Jim Belushi.) His work is very contemporary. My favorite piece was one of the Beatles (Sergeant Pepper days). The piece is made from many broken vinyl record pieces and acrylic – all on canvas).

Before you go visit this gallery, peruse their website. They have an excellent website with information on all of their artists, and it includes, in many cases, many more art pieces than they can represent in their gallery. BUT, recognize that as great as their website is (one of the best I have seen), it does not compare to seeing these pieces with your own eyes. (For example, on the web, you cannot tell the Beatle piece is made of broken vinyl pieces, even though it states it is.)

What a treasure. We will be back. I wish I could buy so many of the pieces!‬

‪Art of the World Gallery is located in a new (or newly renovated) two-story building on Westheimer, between Shepherd and Kirby. With ample parking, the gallery is easy to reach and close to most of the Southwest corner of Houston. It specializes in South American and Caribbean artists and focuses on accomplished painters and sculptors. Last month, the gallery hosted an outstanding exhibit of Botero's sculptures and paintings. Botero is one of the best known (and one of the most expensive) contemporary artists, and while you will find exhibits in major world capitals, we hadn't had a serious show of his work in Houston. In late February a wonderful exhibit of Julio Larraz's work opened at the gallery. One of the leading Cuban artists, his figures, color combinations, the play between light and shadow and his sense of humor make him a very attractive modern painter. The shows are well organized, well lit and there is plenty of space to admire the works on exhibit. The owners, with more than a couple of decades of experience in the world of art have particular interest and expertise in Hispanic artists, making then almost unique in the Houston art world.‬
