The Mission, a Chicago gallery that features contemporary Latin American art, will open a new Houston location in the 4411 Montrose complex. In October, The Mission will join the building’s resident galleries Barbara Davis, Wade Wilson, Anya Tish, and Zoya Tommy.
Current Director Natalia Ferreyra will run the Houston outpost, reports the Houston Chronicle. Ferreyra is a Houston native, so she knows full well that the gallery will be entering a very active scene. For years, local art enthusiasts have enjoyed exhibitions of cutting edge, modern and contemporary Latin American art thanks to the keen eyes of people like Mari Carmen Ramirez at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and María Ines Sicardi of Sicardi Gallery, among others.
