bring wit and environmental awareness to The Halles. Alton DuLaney's cheeky Art signage may just stop you in your tracks, while marine conservation painter, sculptor, and installationist Janavi Mahimtura Folmsbee lures us into her underwater kingdom informed by global dives from the Maldives to Galveston Bay. The Halles is the official drop- off site for Brenham Tour & Coach bus services. Another amenity is the presence of Distinguished Transport moving and storage; visit their booth to arrange for safe and secure shipment of your Round Top treasures. Finally, an attractive new paved footpath makes it possible for you to conveniently stroll between The Halles and The Arbors, two neighboring venues. Throughout the run of show, visit The Halles' old-school watering hole The Crown Bar, which pours craft cocktails, beer, and wine. Morning to midday, partake of ParaVida Wellness' smoothies, juices, wraps, and more. And fans of Texas tastes will be thrilled by the cuisine of pit master Matt Cummins, whose domain is The Halles' newly minted Food Lab by JennAir presented by Underwriting Sponsor JennAir. H alle 5 of fers another member of the art wave: A u s t i n a n d N Y C d e a l e r West Chelsea Contemporar y fills its space with works by the iconic painter and preservationist, museum- collected Hunt Slonem. A dandy and darling of the design set, Slonem's solo at West Chelsea highlights canvases from his considerable menagerie including collector faves, the three Bs: birds, butterflies, and bunnies. Also in West Chelsea's booth, acquire works by a trio of rising street artists: Mila Sketch, Ash Almonte, and Cody Hooper. Finally, don't miss WCC's ultra-cool Gift Shop, where books, merch, and avant-garde and functional objects bring art cred home. At Halle 6, home design, art, and fashion reign in a fab-five group of retailers. Make tracks to Around the Bend for very-now American-made willow furniture. Next, head to Found Images for a date with the past and functional objects imprinted with nifty retro images. We can't wait to visit Beth Weishuhn's Dirty Bohemian for hand-embellished vintage apparel and unique furniture with antique, mid-century, or vintage pedigree, all as stylish as its owner. Check out recent arrivals Brett Millet and Crystal Nichols for coveted antique and mid- century furniture and lighting, and pop by Bachman + Petrie's studio to catch pop painting action in progress. In The Game Room in Halle 7, try your prowess at pool or shuffleboard, or indulge in a whiskey tasting. Don't forget the tents by the main pavilion, where you'll find Pure West by Cheryl Long, which pairs Long's "Cloud" series canvases with vintage Western finery and antique Native American turquoise-and-silver jewelry. Making a big debut in an adjoining tent is the Nashville Makers with custom millinery by A. Botts Willis (in the hat trailer) and her accomplished band of makers including White Rabbit Collective, Three Wolves Trading, and Rank and Sugar. Finally, bask in public art — two Houston artists with impressive CVs West Chelsea Contemporary's Mila Sketch mural in NYC Ysabel LeMay's Light Years Ahead, 2010, at Christopher Martin Gallery Hunt Slonem's Canticle 2, 2022, at West Chelsea Contemporary (Continued from page 113) 114
