Gia Marie Houck Photography Exhibit: Something Wonderful is about to Happy @ Laura’s
Nov 12 2019 – Jan 2 2020 all-day

Join us for an exhibit of photography featuring the work of Gia Marie Houck. A Reception will be held on November 17, from 2 to 4 pm.

A former hospice social worker by profession, Gia Marie Houck uses her camera to capture the subtle intricacies of life and the world around us. She especially enjoys finding the quieter, lesser noticed, but really beautiful small moments and shining a little light on them. Her work includes images from both Austin and her travels. You can find her at www.giamariephotos.com.
