Jose Hernandez, aka Ch3mex, the graffiti artist, muralist and fine artist, and graphic artist Robert Messenger have leased and are remodeling an 8,000-square-foot building at Seventh and Louisiana for their new enterprise, Dedicated art studios and retail. Hernandez said Dedicated will do graphic design jobs and include rental studio space for artists (including a darkroom), a common area, a gallery and store. He expects Dedicated to open in mid-February.

Hernandez said there will be exhibits in the gallery space every month. Already scheduled at the gallery is a fund-raiser for the skateboard park at Kanis Park. Skateboards painted by artists will be for sale.

Studio space rents will likely range from $100 to $250 a month. Contact Hernandez at for more information.

Here's a previous post about Ch3mex and his art.

  • A miscellany of art: Aug. 10-16

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
