The work of Houston artist (and St. Thomas alum) Loida Wexler will be recognized at a reception hosted by local restaurant Urban Eats on Saturday, February 24. The popular Washington Ave spot is known for its made-in-house specialties and its commitment to locally-sourced ingredients. Ms. Wexler’s appearance is part of their “Urban Arts” series of exhibitions celebrating up-and-coming artists alongside artisanal, local food.

Ms. Wexler works in midtown, and her pieces possess color and energy befitting that vibrant location. Wexler describes her work thusly: “I am an artist who specializes in paintings/drawings in acrylics and oils using various methods such as palette knife, brushes and fluid media. I was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh through his use of texture to convey a sense of realism and movement through his work. He ‘breathes life’ into an inanimate painting.”

Those same qualities appealed to Urban Eats owner and culinary director Levi Rollins. “Loida Wexler’s work is filled with passion and life; it’s the perfect complement to the Urban feel of our space,” Mr. Rollins said.
