 Do you love modern art? Modern architecture?  All things modern are being celebrated in Houston this week, leading up to the weekend's two-day Modern Market at the Winter Street Studios. Local and national exhibitors will showcase their wares, including fine art, furniture and jewelry, in all-day events that include lectures, tours, parties and a vintage car show.

A two-day market pass is $10, but $50 will get you a three-day pass that includes the Houston Modern Market Preview Party Friday night at the Winter Street Studios. At the party, you'll get an early chance to shop before the market opens. Here is the full schedule.

Events are going on all week. Tonight, author, architect and historian Alan Hess will talk and sign books at the River Oaks Bookstore, 3270 Westheimer Rd. from 4-6 p.m., followed by a screening of a documentary about the life and work of Donald Wexler, a noted architect. Hess also will sign books and talk at the screening.

On Thursday, Stephen Fox, an author and architecture historian, will deliver a lecture at the Architecture Center Houston (315 Capitol St., #120) on "Border Modern: Modern Architecture on the Texas-Mexican Border."

Another film, William Krisel, Architect, will be shown Thursday night at the Architecture Center. Hess will talk after the screening.
