Satori Art Gallery
Known as the art and soul of Houston, EaDo (East Downtown) is exploding with culture. Satori wanted to jump in and embrace the eclectic, artful community of EaDo; thus the Satori Art Gallery was born. Giving back to our community is a big part of who we are, and we thought there was no better way to do that than to feature rotating, local artists, whose unique and gorgeous pieces of art now line our walls. These artists come from all different walks of life, and all roads lead to Satori! The best part about our art, you can purchase it directly from our walls! Come on by any time to check out the freshest talent on the block. Learn more about our featured artists by reading below.
Marlo Saucedo presents the internal as the external, like the stories we hold within ourselves, visible to those close to us.
Journalism experience plus a lifetime love of the written word influence her Visual Art Narrative work: Narratives become visual subjects/objects, telling stories and imparting information in ink, paper, and acrylic, sometimes with yuzen paper added to create a collage or watercolor paper pieces toward pointillistic work.
Marlo grew up in Houston and returned after graduate school to its vibrant arts community. Her work is created in the light of a north-facing window in a home surrounded by woods outside of the city, and she exhibits her pieces in her studio, #231 at The Silos at Sawyer Yards.
