The Houston Press checked out Art League Houston’s latest exhibit — One of a Kind — and found that it lived up to the title. The folk art display, which runs through November 1, comes courtesy of Stephanie Smither, who the Press calls an “avid and perspicacious” collector and more recently named the Texas Patron of the Year by Art League Houston.

Smither’s collection runs the gamut with sculptures made of wire, bottle caps, toilet paper (no, seriously), paintings and more. The binding factors for the exhibit are the pieces’ designation as folk art and their quirky individuality, making each work worthy of the label “one of a kind.”
