Galveston’s Avis Frank Moves Into Old King Biscuit Space in Houston’s Woodland Heights: Grand Opening June 9

by Bill Davenport May 21, 2012

Year-old Galveston gallery Avis Frank is moving to Houston, reanimating the sprawling collection of architectural improvisations that once house neighborhood landmark bar King Biscuit, perched on the edge of White Oak Bayou in Houston’s Woodland Heights. True to their contrarian marketing strategy (Avis Frank opened last April in Galveston, in a spirit of defiance of the seaside city’s limited audience for contemporary art), the relocated gallery will host its Grand Opening on June 9 just as other galleries are shutting down for the summer, featuring Houston master refabricator Patrick Renner, who will be making memento sculptures out of the salvaged bar and interior trim.

I am excited to see an art gallery in the neighborhood. Of course we all miss the old Bisquit where the neighborhood artists used to meet regularly for a beer and a sporting event.
