Isabella Quintet:* Houston’s New Gallery Row

BY Catherine D. Anspon // 06.05.15

Always in dynamic transformation, Texas’ preeminent gallery cluster in Houston over the past two decades has segued from Colquitt to 4411 Montrose and now to the ascendant Isabella Court. Unlike the growth of the Dallas Design District, Houston’s new gallery alley is historic — a circa-1920s Spanish Revival mixed-used retail/residential center — and more finite, as it’s limited to five spaces.

Adding to the equation is its proximity to DiverseWorks and the about-to-unveil new digs of Zoya Tommy Gallery.The Isabella nexus of galleries is also perfectly sited along the Metro light rail line, near the new MATCH performing arts complex and a short drive or rail hop to the Houston Museum District. Check out what’s up now at Isabella in its five prime galleries: the original (and the anchor) Inman GalleryArt Palace, David Shelton Gallery, Devin Borden Gallery and recent arrival Samara Gallery.
