Savannah Christian PC Acquire eBay Holiday L ike Andy Warhol, our talent for this month's PC Acquire, Deborah Treviño Porter, juggles the realms of commercial and fine art. With nearly a quarter century of image-making as a lensman of cover and feature stories (including ones for PaperCity), Porter knows her way around a Leica and Hasselblad. Beginning in 2011, she turned her camera on fine art, unveiling a series of fashionable, uncanny skeletons in the latest designer garb. Next up: For PaperCity, she debuts "Three Minutes in Mexico," a series that hovers between abstraction and reality, snapped on a cruise ship from the upper deck "with a Leica point and shoot." The photographer reveals, Deborah Treviño Porter's Untitled #8, from the series "I have now determined that after 25 years of "Three Minutes in Mexico" working with the best equipment, an unconventional method can create some original art if you fear not. I'm intrigued by the characters in the shadows and the 'What is it?' factor." Peruse the original image and the seven vignettes sampled from it at papercitymag. com, or see the actual prints in person at Deborah Colton Gallery in Houston (November 17 – January 19). "There are moments in time when the unpredictable will happen, you have to seize the moment," Porter says. "The trip was a gift from my daughter, and the image was a gift from the universe." "Three Minutes in Mexico," a photographic series of eight images, editions of 11 per image printed with pigment inks on watercolor paper; 16 by 16 inches, framed $1,250, unframed $975; 16 by 41.5 inches, framed $1,850, unframed $1,500.

Caroline Gallay Making Tracks to NorthPark Center EMILY SIMS The Big O Fallon Ocho Kitchen + Cocktails, 8411 Preston Road, 214.217.0888 CARTER ROSE As far as we're concerned, any meal that commences with chips and salsa means Tex-Mex, but Ocho Kitchen + Cocktails provides the whole enchilada and then some. Sure, you'll find hatch chile con queso and Santa Fe–style fajitas on the menu, but you'll also discover non-South-of-the-Border fare with a subtle Ocho Kitchen + Cocktails Thai influence, as evidenced by the black sesame honey white shrimp tempura, fire-grilled Atlantic salmon and agave-basted pork tenderloin. This isn't the first fiesta for owners Brian Black, Benjamin Crosland, chef Eric DiStefano (Santa Fe's Coyote Café, Geronimo) and executive chef Ross Demers — all four have enough foodie star wattage to fill Ocho's three levels. Settle into a spot in the family-friendly dining area or get the party started in the upstairs 8Bar cocktail lounge, resplendent with 50 handselected tequilas. The kitchen is open 11 am to 10 pm; order a Hot Mamacita signature cocktail or test your limits with a Hatch Chile Smoke until the wee hours.
