We are excited about the newest addition to the courtyard here at the Live Oak Art Center.  The Courtyard Wine Bar opened in March 2017 and offers an extensive selection of wine and beer along with some exciting food and music!  Courtyard Wine Bar is open Thursdays 5pm-8pm,  Friday 5pm-10pm, and Saturdays 10am-2pm (brunch).

Avisheh Mohsenin was born in France, and moved to Iran as a child where she grew up and attended university before moving to the U.S. in 1997.  After obtaining a Masters in Economics she started her art career by taking classes and experimenting with various mediums eventually specializing in mixed media imagery, collages and installations. 

In 2017, Hurricane Harvey flooded her art studio in Houston, damaging much of her artwork and photographs along with irreplaceable family portraits and correspondence.  The process of salvaging what she could from her studio became a process of capturing the ways that the flood waters had changed and manipulated her photographs.  The result ended up being a collaboration between Hurricane Harvey and Avisheh that would produce and exhibition that is both stunning in appearance and humbling in appreciation of the loss and reinvention.
