PHOTO RECAP: POP Austin VIP Opening Party

A mix of artists, art aficionados, and the social set ventured to East Austin’s Fair Market for a speak peak at this weekend’s POP Austin international art show. As a first time visitor to Fair Market, I was immediately taken aback on how the warehouse was transformed into a chic gallery space, beckoning guests in from even blocks away.
