Dear friends and colleagues
I am writing to announce that Hello Project programing has officially concluded. This may not be surprise to many of you after we unexpectedly lost our gallery space last year
I am very proud of what we were able to accomplish in such a short time. I want to thank you all for your input and support - from the hundreds that showed at our first opening, to exhibiting at our first art fairs in Miami and New York.
But while this chapter has ended, the next is literally on our doorstep. For over a year, we sought to find what was next, searching our hearts and our city - we questioned everything. We sought long-term stability and to continue challenging traditional gallery models
We found the home we were looking for in a 1914 Craftsman-style bungalow located in Audubon Place Historic District. Located at 904 Marshall, it is in the heart of Houston's Montrose neighborhood. We are proud to have saved it from the wrecking ball and have worked tirelessly all summer to prepare for our first exhibition. Instead of reducing the architecture to white walls, we decided to preserve as much of the inherent character as possible. The result is a space that is both domestic and honest to its time, but also a very beautiful and atypical setting for contemporary art.
Jonathan Hopson is coming soon. Our mission will be much the same, seeking to foster emerging contemporary artists but in a manner that is more sustainable and more interesting. Be on the look out for more information soon
