Local Photographers Take Over The Heights Once Per Month, Showcase Work And Passion At Monthly Festival
Elaine Mesker-Garcia and Christine Tremoulet have both been chosen to be the featured artists
at the Heights Yale Street Arts Market. Both photographers, Mesker-Garcia of Jersey Village area and Tremoulet of
Spring, formed FreshPhotography.org in the fall of 2006 to share their love for photography with the world. As part of
the plan, the pair began attending festivals like the first Saturday event in the Heights. Now having attended regularly
for a year, this is the second time each has been chosen to be featured by the market.
Market coordinator Mitch Cohen says, "Christine and Elaine are what we are all about, finding your passion and
sharing it with others. They've been chosen as a pair to be featured because everything about them is professional: High
quality matted prints of their work, excellent booth display and a wonderful attitude. I see people return to their
booth each month!" Cohen also pointed out that its artists like Mesker-Garcia and Tremoulet that have been the drive to
