East Montrose Civic Association will host its 10th biennial Home Tour and Art Walk on Saturday, April 25, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Situated in the shadow of downtown Houston, East Montrose was platted in the early 1900's - back in the days when Houston's population numbered fewer than 300,000, and when a railroad ran down what is now Fairview. During the 1960s Montrose became a center for counterculture and hippie communes. Today a diverse mix of people and architecture, this pedestrian-friendly area was recently named one of the ten great neighborhoods in America. The tour will highlight a wide variety of architectural styles featuring six homes originally built between the late 1890s to the early 1900s. Tour goers can get a glimpse of how the architecture has been transformed over the years, with the results of unique and diverse renovations that are characteristic of this distinctive, eclectic neighborhood. Seven restaurants - including Max’s Wine Dive, Midtown Bar & Grill, ElevenXI, Gratifi Kitchen, El Tiempo Cantina, Soren Pedersen, and the new Akamaru Sushi Bar will offer delectable tastings to guests. Also visit the working studios of eight local artists, all within comfortable strolling distance. You'll be invited in to the space where artists get their inspiration, and you'll see where and how their crafts come to life. Featured artists include Joan Son & Keiko Kinsey, Veronique & Luc Schlumberger, Gloria & Richard Stamper Photography, and Tim Corbett. Historic music landmark Anderson Fair, 2007 Grant at Welch, will show photography by Cindy Hsin Shung. East Montrose is in the 77006 Zip Code and lies within the boundaries of Montrose, West Gray, Genesee, and Fairview. Drive or bicycle over, and look for the Home Tour signs. Advance tickets cost $15 at www.eastmontrose.org. Day-of-Tour tickets are $20 and available at any tour home. The Art Walk is free.
