Join Visual Arts Alliance Saturday, August 5, at 11:00 a.m. for an in-person panel discussion “Outside the Lines – Artists & Architecture” at the AIA Building, 902 Commerce Street in downtown Houston. Four artists will discuss the reasons they changed their career paths from architectural design to the visual arts and how their backgrounds have influenced their work.

Luisa Duarte is a Venezualan-American visual artist with degree in Architecture. Carlos Pozo was born in Chile and has lived in the Middle East, Europe, and now Texas. He studied architecture and works in digital art, printmaking, video animation. Daniel Brents lived and worked as an architect overseas and throughout the United States, and now paints to record the visual character of places.
