We had the pleasure of speaking with one of the newest gallery owners in the city, Kevin Watson of Winston Contemporary Arts. He comes from a world much different from the world of art, but that allows him to have some different approaches that may make him that much more of a success in this ever changing art market. We had a wonderful time having…
 
This conversation, like all of our conversations, was expansive, humbling, enlightening, heavy and funny. Ann is amazing to say the least. I can't over sell this, of that I am sure. Please listen like you listen listen. Ann Johnson founding (1 of 2 Founders) member is our 3rd member of Roux that we have been able to speak to and connect with and ag…
 
We had a good time making this friend this week. David Anderson has been an enterprising Entrepreneur since the age of 16 and has never looked back. He now collects art, manages artists and is the managing partner of and marketing agency. Art is a central and essential part of all of the things he does. I hope ya'll enjoy learning about him as we d…
 
Marc Furi is the creator of Project Row Houses most successful/viral homes. He is not stopping there though! He is poised to take his place in history by telling the story of a great man who contributed to him being a great man. Intrigued yet? He is funny too! We had a great time talking with Marc and reminiscing about all he's created and accompli…

Also check out The Silent Auction of Creatives for Asylum Seekers & Migrants Sunday, November 3rd, 5-10pm 1120 Naylor St. Tickets are inexpensive and you could walk away with some bomb art, FOR THE LOW!!!…
 
Vernon Akili and I worked at the same educational organization for more than a year before I found out about his wonderful portraits he makes. I don't work there any more, but I am glad he still does. He has a lot to teach the kids about being an artist and how to find their voice. You will hear it in the way he speaks and in the part of the conver…
 
This interview is a SPECIAL one. I think you all can see why. Delita Martin is an amazingly talented woman, but that still does not do her work nor her any justice in terms of describing her, her work, nor her role in this life. She is a talented printmaker who is ready to regale you with her wisdom and still get back to the grind like she is just …
 
We are back!!! With season 2 and ready to keep this thing moving! The AEC team has a great line-up for you this season and we kick it off with Diedre Thomas! And, okay, okay, okay, she is not a grant mom (I made that up), but it rhymed, and she is the Associate Director of Grants for Houston Art’s Alliance. We enjoyed talking to Diedre and learning…
 
Thank you for listening. It has been an amazing run! We are sad that Season 1 is coming to an end, but we are proud of ourselves for making it through it. We are also happy that we have been able to make something that others give a damn about!!! In this episode we reflected season 1, and look to our future! Thank you all for your support and love.…
 
Unlike most of the other interviewees we've had, this weeks guest is a relative stranger, but he was vouched for by Robert Hodge. LaMonte French is an abstract expressionist, who's works deals with his passion for the content of today, and how we have found our way as a world of people where we are today and more. We learned a lot about LaMonte and…
 
Our guest this week is a special one and y'all may be tired of hearing from him, but we hope not. It's me, and I'm in the seat that all of our guests have been in and it is AWKWARD! We all made it through. Please listen and enjoy. Peace.-M.
 
India Lovejoy, effed with the vision so we got her to sit down and collab with the AEC team, lol. Listen to the ep and you will know where that comes from. Seriously, though, India does a lot for artist and the arts. We didn't really know where to begin, so we just did. We enjoyed our time rapping with her and hopefully you enjoy listening to the c…
 
Our guest this week is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work centers around the topic of blackness and the pride in and of everything related to the privilege of being black. Music is extremely important to his practice as well. One could call it the driving force, and even the art at times. He is taking art to the people in unconventional ways, a…
 
Raquel, Myself, and Vernique took a trip out to ATX (Austin), the home of SxSW, to speak with the incredible figurative painter...Nigerian American artist, Dawn Okoro. I did not know what to expect, but the artwork drew us in and so we road tripped it. I have to say, there was no disappointment. Dawn was open honest and awesome. I think it is safe …
 
Living between is a weird place to be, but a good place to be, sometimes. For artists, this means, often times, being able to pay bills and make work that fills you. Hopefully. It could mean that you can't do either very effectively... For our guests this week it means the former. This is a balance that must be found one way or another when creatin…
 
Thank you all for sticking with us! In this ep we recap the first half of out first season and offer you our explanation for our "Scandal Break", as Raquel Calls it. We really do appreciate you, and this podcast has been part of my saving grace, not as instrumental as my wife, family and friends, but this is important too! If you need help please g…
 
This is the continuation of our conversation with Danny Dunson. In this half of the conversation we discuss Ghana. Ghana, the place that brought so much fullness to Danny's life and helped us all get a bit closer to black art, and for a lot of us, home. Danny has been a conduit for many of us, through which we have gleaned so much from the images w…
 
Yes, we finally thought that an interview was too long to be just a one part episode. But seriously, we just had too much to talk about and maybe even forgot some things we should have asked. Danny is an art historian, writer and curator with a unique perspective on life and art due to an upbringing and support system most dream of. That doesn't me…
 
We spoke with Moe penders about their work. What is it about? Why does it exist? Who is it for? What drives it? The answer is culture. The things, people and places that make Moe, Moe. The things, people, and places that Moe holds near and dear and help Moe be even more Moe than they knew they could be. Those things that have taught Moe what life i…
 
Raquel is back!!! This week we were granted the pleasure of sitting with my boy! Brian Ellison. Brian is an amazing and hard working man, who is able to capture some of the most authentic moments, both big and small, all over his community of 3rd ward. He approaches with a trust of himself that many of us can aspire to. His work has been seen at Mu…
 
Off top, let me apologize for the absence of Raquel Symone for this interview, but she will be part of the next. I think you will still be pleased though. This week is more specialer (not a word) than others in that I had an opportunity to sit down with my brother. His work deals with, self, representation, reflections of self and identity all thro…
 
This week we share our wonderful conversation with Tony Paraná. Tony is a teacher of Brazilian culture by way of copoeira, music and other forms of art. His perpetuation of the culture that shaped him are odes to places he's been and the people and experiences have shaped his country and subsequently him. While that is and we want you to know about…
 
We had the pleasure of sitting down with Rabéa Ballin (Ru-bay-uh B-eye-een). She is a woman I have had the pleasure of being acquainted with since 2008. Her work reeled me in and helped me make some important decisions. The time Raquel and I got to spend with her was confirmation that I made the right decisions and AEC is on the right path. This wa…
 
We spoke with Moriah Alise about juggling her various roles as artist, gallerist, curator, and her experiences navigating the art world as a young black woman. We also got off topic a lot, but we had fun recording this and we hope you have fun listening. Peace--M
