EFFORT ECONOMY

On view February 1 – May 5, 2019

Featuring Julie FavreauRaul GonzalezR. Eric McMasterRonny Quevedoand Anne Wallace.

Reflecting on dancer and theorist Rudolf Laban’s ideas related to effort and movement the exhibition features artists whose work utilizes choreography in some form. Movement and the body are essential to the works in the exhibition, with artists considering the design and sequencing of movement as it relates to dance, sports, daily life, eroticism, and more. Other ideas presented through this exhibition include internal rhythm and time as forces we connect our bodies to, and our drive for interconnectivity to one another in both the material and immaterial world.

Laban introduced the termeffortin the context of modern dance theory as a mental impulse where movement originates. He designated four factors of motion— space, weight, time and flow— that embody effort. The combination of these factors generates the dynamic of movement. Laban also defined basic actions relating to effort: to press, to flick, to wring, to dab, to slash, to glide, to punch and to float.

Using Laban’s theories as a foundation, this exhibition also considers the varied definitions of the terms effort and economy in combination with one another. We look at different contexts where our movements are calculated, sometimes the parameters fabricated or designed by the artists. Artists consider how the expenditure of energy can be optimized, futile, emotional, healing, sensual, mundane, and create new aesthetic languages. The works generate questions around the values we assign to the exerting effort, whether this be monetary, economic, social, or moral.

Ruby City presents Solo Show of Isaac Julien’s Film Looking For Langston

March 1 – August 11, 2019

Public Opening Reception: February 28, 2019, 6:30-8:30pm

Location: Studio, 111 Camp St. San Antonio, TX 78204

Ruby City presents an exhibition of works by renowned filmmaker and installation artist, Isaac Julien, CBE RA opening at Studio on February 28, 2019. Central to the exhibition is Julien’s seminal 1989 documentary-drama Looking for Langston, a film which expanded his international acclaim. Looking for Langston, one of Julien’s most recognized early works, is a meditation on the life of poet, novelist and playwright Langston Hughes alongside several of his contemporaries who were also integral members of the Harlem Renaissance. When it debuted, it was lauded for its exploration of desire and the reciprocity of the gaze, and marked a founding film of what critic B.Ruby Rich named The New Queer Cinema.

The film is regarded as a fundamental resource for African-American Studies and has been a key part of curricula in North American universities, colleges and art schools. 2019 marks it’s 30th anniversary.

Also on display are two recently acquired photographic works from the Looking for Langston series, Film-Noir Angels and Masquerade No. 3, which illuminate the multilayered narratives present throughout Julien’s oeuvre.

Julien’s film, video installation and photographic works combine a number of artistic genres to create a unique visual language. Much of Julien’s work explores issues of Black and queer identities. Addressing themes such as institutionalized racism, transcultural identity and experiences of cultural displacement, Julien’s work explores many of the social and economic issues facing contemporary global society.

During her lifetime, Linda Pace was a dedicated supporter of Julien’s practice, acquiring over fifty works for her permanent collection. Today, the Linda Pace Foundation preserves the largest collection of Julien’s work.

Michael Wayne Lackey | Wonders From Above Curated by Lone Star Art Space @ ReMax New Hights

Each sunrise or sunset is a glorious creation in its own right. Each cloud pattern is unique and beautiful. Looking upward, stopping time, each photo tells its own story and helps the viewer see the sky in new ways with deep and varied layers of colors and patterns. This collection is a display of the power of light, darkness and patterns– Wonders from Above.

“I gravitate towards exploring the wonders in our world which we so take for granted, that we don’t even notice anymore. Each simple creation around us say so much and is so worthy of wonder. My work also is inspired by the simple, yet powerfully complex nature that happen around us every day. We all share the sky. I revel in the wonderful Texas skies, sunrises and sunsets – the exquisite light, adjusting from dark to bright and back again each and every day – such an awesome sight to behold.”

Michael Wayne Lackey is a native San Antonian and Texan with a family history that goes back twelve generation. Michael is a practicing engineer who discovered creating art as expression of the abstract side of the technical mind. Capturing ordinary moments from his mobile device, this is his first solo photography show. He has previously exhibited with other photograph students at the Southwest Craft Center (now Southwest Art Institute). He has previously shown his acrylic painting and oil pastel works.

This exhibit is curated by Lone Star Art Space an Artist Incubation Space located 107 Lone Star Blvd., San Antonio, TX. 78204 – in the heart of Lone Star Art District and has been made possible through the support of ReMax New Hights.

CAM 2019 Perennial Opening Exhibition “Ghostly Demarcations” Curator Kevin Burns @ Blue Star Contemporary
Mar 1 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
CAM 2019 Perennial Opening Exhibition "Ghostly Demarcations" Curator Kevin Burns @ Blue Star Contemporary

In pursuit of its mission to raise the national profile of San Antonio contemporary art and artists, each year Contemporary Art Month selects a city to partner with to foster dialogue and opportunities beyond San Antonio. We invite a professional curator from the partnering city to visit San Antonio artists’ studios to choose artists to participate in the CAM Perennial exhibition.

Contemporary Art Month (CAM) announces its 2019 Perennial Exhibition, Ghostly Demarcations, organized by guest curator, Kevin Burns, Education and Curatorial Associate at El Paso Museum of Art. Ghostly Demarcations features the work of eight El Paso/Juarez and San Antonio artists including: Animales de Poder, Kim Bauer, Therese Bauer, Audrey LeGalley, Ingrid Leyva, Amada Miller, Barbara Miñarro, and Katie Pell.

CAM has partnered with Blue Star Contemporary, as well as Heavy Heavy, Dorcol Distillery, Ruby City/Chris Park, and San Antonio Current. The exhibition will be hosted at  Blue Star Contemporary, where Contemporary Art Month will mark its start with a public opening on March 1, 2019. CAM is also proud to announce visual artist Sarah Fox as  their newly appointed Board Chair.

ABOUT KEVIN BURNS

Kevin Burns is the Education and Curatorial Associate at El Paso Museum of Art where he most recently has worked on a number of curatorial projects including After Posada: Revolution featuring works by José Guadalupe Posada, Andrea Bowers, Cruz Ortiz; Julie Speed: East of the Sun and West of the Moon; Early West Texas: Waypoint and Home; 5th Transborder Biennial; and Papel Chicano Dos: Works on Paper from the Collection of Cheech Marin. Burns has also facilitated public programs such as La Frontera: Art + People + Place, a two-day convening in El Paso and Juárez. He holds a Bachelor of Arts  from Baylor University and a Master of Letters in Theology from the University of St Andrews (Scotland).

ABOUT 2019 PERENNIAL ARTISTS

The exhibition features the work of eight El Paso/Juarez and San Antonio artists who investigate structures and origins, be they societal, cosmological, familial, or personally constructed through memory and experience. Using various media—prints, drawings, collages, installations, textiles, and ceramics—these artists simultaneously construct conceptual frameworks, address their tenuousness, and critique and upend them.

Animales de Poder , an El Paso / Juárez-based artist collective, critiques cultural and societal structures of power through multimedia, research-based installations.

Kim Bauer ’s abstracted intaglio and relief prints of scaffolding, construction materials, found objects, and track-like patterns explore form-making and natural cycles of building, destroying, and rebuilding.

Therese Bauer ’s drawings and collages investigate fragility and delicacy, objectivity and subjectivity, and incorporate revision, erasure, and reassembled images.

Audrey LeGalley addresses heritage and domesticity, conveying familial anxiety and fragility through the medium of  ceramics.

Ingrid Leyva studies the complexity of the El Paso / Juárez border region—its duality, divisiveness, tenuousness, and permeability—through diptych photographs of empty rooms and sparsely inhabited streets.

Amada Miller explores the origins of life at a simultaneously cosmological and intimately human level using elemental media such as sound and water.

Barbara Miñarro, using ceramics, found material, and human hair, explores familial heritage and tradition, simultaneously critiquing and embracing its influence.

Katie Pell, through recent and never-before-exhibited works, explores narrative structure, composition, and dynamics of hierarchy.

ABOUT CONTEMPORARY ART MONTH

Every March, during Contemporary Art Month (CAM), San Antonio artists, performers and curators present the best our community has to offer at galleries, museums, performing arts spaces, schools, artist studios and various unconventional locations around the city. Contemporary Art Month is also the name of the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports and promotes these events.

Mission

Contemporary Art Month seeks to promote and raise the national profile of San Antonio contemporary art and artists by organizing and facilitating a month-long celebration of contemporary art, providing marketing support, and by organizing and facilitating public programs.

History

Contemporary Art Month started in 1986 by the director of Southwest School of Art and Craft in what is now Blue Star Contemporary, CAM became an independent project in 2003. The organization’s primary purpose is to organize, by means of a calendar, contemporary art events taking place in San Antonio during the month; as well as sponsoring a number of educational events in celebration of contemporary art.  In 2010, CAM officially moved from July to March. 2012 introduced the CAM “Perennial” Exhibition, where a curator from outside of San Antonio was invited to curate a show of San Antonio Contemporary artists. 2013 introduced CAMx (The CAM exchange), an exhibition exchange between San Antonio artists and artists from another city.

INVISIBLE THREADS Exhibition Opening @ SAY Sí

INVISIBLE THREADS
In Celebration of SAY Si’s 25th Anniversary
Opening Reception: Friday, March 1, 2019

In celebration of SAY Si’s 25th anniversary year, Invisible Threads celebrates our organization and the many links that tie our work to the creative community of San Antonio. The exhibit will showcase the community that has built SAY Sí including alumni, staff, artists in residence, and artist participants in our various exhibits and events throughout our history. In addition, we will present in the exhibition an overview of our core programs and the impact they have had on our youth, community, the city, and nation.

The event will be one of the touchstone events for the organization as we showcase programs and exhibitions to mark our 25th anniversary. We hope that the exhibit will highlight the impact that SAY Sí has had on the creative and cultural landscape in San Antonio. We feel that our organization creates a ripple effect in every single life that the program touches and this exhibition will shine a light on the collective impact the SAY Sí programming has had on the lives of so many. Additionally, one of SAY Sí’s core values is reciprocal learning, so we also acknowledge the contributions of the many creatives that have shaped and strengthened our organization.

Once you belong to the SAY SI community there is this invisible thread that links you back to us, sometimes its slack, but many times is taunt, reminding you of who you are, and how your impact has many intersections.

Villa Finale: Museum and Gardens Presents Exhibition of Outdoor Sculptures by San Antonio Artist Danville Chadbourne @ Villa Finale: Museum and Gardens

In conjunction with San Antonio’s Contemporary Art Month, Villa Finale: Museum & Gardens is pleased to announce an exhibition of outdoor sculptures by San Antonio artist Danville Chadbourne, on their beautiful grounds in the heart of the King William Historic District. The exhibition opens March 7, 2019 with an Artist Reception from 4:30 – 7:30 pm. This event is free and open to the public. The exhibition will continue through May 24, viewable during Villa Finale’s normal business hours.

Featuring thirteen recently completed outdoor works, the exhibition emphasizes Chadbourne’s typical integration of organic and geometric forms, juxtaposing bold color and graphic imagery with the natural surface qualities of high-fire ceramic, stone, and bronze. Like monuments to poetic or abstract philosophical ideas, these works stand as elegant markers of both massive, grounded form and ephemeral, enigmatic gestures. Each work is a complete, self-contained sculptural idea that finds unexpected linkages and visual interactions with the natural and man-made environment, and with each other, establishing an aesthetic and metaphorical dialogue that engages the grounds, the architecture, and the viewer in both subtle and obvious ways.

Danville Chadbourne was born in Bryan, Texas in 1949. He received a BFA in 1971 from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas and an MFA in 1973 from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. He has exhibited extensively at both state and national levels, including over 100 one-person exhibitions. His works are included in numerous private and public collections, including the San Antonio Museum of Art, the McNay Art Museum, San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University, and the Rockport Center for the Arts. Chadbourne has been featured in Sculpture Magazine, Ceramics Monthly, and The Art of Found Objects: Interviews with Texas Artists (Texas A&M Univ. Press, 2016). International residencies include ArtSpace India in Calcutta, India and Atelierhaus Hilmsen in Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany. Primarily a sculptor in clay and wood, Chadbourne works in a range of materials and in both two- and three-dimensional formats. Over the years he has created a complex body of work unified by a primal iconography and artifact-like quality emerging from a very personal and consistent formal, aesthetic and philosophical sense. He has lived in San Antonio, Texas since 1979.

Second Saturday Art Walk and Opening featuring artist Michael Esparza.

Possessing an artistic sensibility unlike those commonly seen coming out of his native San Antonio, Michael Esparza uses a wide array of skill sets he couples with a fascination in the concept of time and configuration of spaces. Studying sculpture, painting and installation at the University of Texas at San Antonio which he added to a year of traveling abroad in Europe, he started establishing his vision. Yet it wasn’t until Esparza suffered from a near deadly car accident that his work took its most drastic, some may say inspiring turn. Now, his art speaks with layers and depth, guiding his viewers into a carefully crafted journey. The viewer is not only impacted by the work itself but slowly begins to piece together an underlying theme, now off on their own tangent of thought.

Civil Pleasures @ The Spire

Natalie Melendez is a Marfa-based artist of California extraction. She creates work that utilizes American detritus. The work is largely centered around collage, though the material is ever-changing. Focusing more on form than metaphor, the works, though largely on paper, are tactile and sculptural. Melendez is currently working on a series of colleges entitled Birds of America that will be adapted into a book.

Van Hanos’s approach to painting is varied, united almost entirely by its stylistic unpredictability. Ranging from landscape to portraiture, recent work continues to explore perceptual shifts and thematic rupture. (b. 1979, Edison) currently lives in Marfa, Texas. Recent solo exhibitions include “Late American Paintings”, Château Shatto (Los Angeles), “Mommy’s boy”, Cleopatra’s (New York), “Awake At The Funeral”, Tanya Leighton (Berlin), “Van Hanos”, Parapet Real Humans (St. Louis), “Intercalaris”, Rowhouse Project (Baltimore), and “Van Hanos”, West Street Gallery (New York). His work has been reviewed in Flash Art, Artforum, Art in America, and the New York Times Magazine.

Moritz Landgrebe spent his childhood and adolescence in both Germany and the U.S., primarily in Bremen and Marfa. After graduating from Marfa High School in 2008, he studied at both the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and the University of North Texas in Denton, and received a BFA in sculpture from the latter school in 2014. Upon graduating, Moritz moved back to Marfa where he has been living and working since.

Ross Cashiola is a multidisciplinary artist who currently resides in Marfa, Texas where he has lived and worked since 2006. Hotel Brotherhood is the name of his musical project for the last 15 years and the last exhibition of his visual art was at MASS gallery in Austin as part of Sam Schonzeit’s “Showing People” exhibit there in July of 2016. Other exhibitions include “Drawings – Marfa Book Company” April 2014 and “Potential Energies – Secret Histories Museum” Chicago 2006

Norbert Garcia was born in Southern Arizona and grew up in Tucson. He studied art at the Oxbow School in Napa Valley, California and Santa Monica College in Los Angeles. In 2015 Norbert graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in sculpture. He currently lives and works in Newport, RI.

Amanda Benavides lives and works in San Antonio, Texas. She was born and in Crystal City, Texas. She received her BA in Visual Arts and Sociology from Columbia  University. After a semester in he MFA Design+Technology program at Parsons The New School, she decided to take a leave to instead work for artists. Since then, she has maintained her own art/design brand called Mâché. Benavides’ fine art work ranges across many mediums, and often explores the ideas of action, physicality, gender, race, hip-hop culture, queerness, and violence.

Subjective Timbre: Works by Amada Miller @ The Gallery at MBS Yoga
Mar 20 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Subjective Timbre: Works by Amada Miller @ The Gallery at MBS Yoga
Subjective Timbre is an exhibition of works based on the color dualities of Johannes Itten’s theory of color. Using naturally derived and synthetic dye processes, Miller will employ fiber and sculpture to explore an individual’s preferred color combinations. This exhibition will also present a movement based performance influenced by Itten’s core belief system of the Mazdaznan Health & Breath Culture. Itten taught a group of stretching and posing exercises to his students on the roof of Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany from 1919 to 1923 called The Egyptian Postures, movements that are claimed to be descended directly from the Pharaohs.
Amada Miller is an artist based in San Antonio, Texas. Her work has been exhibited at Agora Gallery, AP Art Lab, Artpace San Antonio, Blue Star Contemporary, Capsule Gallery, Flight Gallery, French & Michigan, the McNay Art Museum, Palmetto Center for the Arts at Northwest Vista College, Sala Diaz and The University of Texas at San Antonio. She recently completed a residency at Künstlerhaus Bethanien via Blue Star Contemporary’s Berlin Residency program, where she worked closely with curators and research staff at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin. Future solo exhibitions include Blue Star Contemporary (San Antonio, TX), Cinnabar (San Antonio, TX), Useable Space (Milwaukee, WI) and Porcino (Berlin).

Leigh Anne Lester: No Necessary Time Axis on Evolutionary Novelties @ Ruiz-Healy Art
Mar 27 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Leigh Anne Lester: No Necessary Time Axis on Evolutionary Novelties @ Ruiz-Healy Art

Ruiz-Healy Art is pleased to present No Necessary Time Axis on Evolutionary Novelties, a solo exhibition of new works by Leigh Anne Lester. The exhibition will open to the public with a reception on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. The show is accompanied by a catalogue written with an essay by Hills Snyder.

Long interested in how the natural world evolves and changes, Lester creates a body of work that encompasses an intergenerational microscopic and macroscopic view of abstracted information. “The work in the show is a recurring visual vocabulary. If the viewer follows those clues they will find information resurfacing in different pieces throughout this exhibit. A very slow motioned animation of generational manifestations” explains Lester.

Patricia Ruiz-Healy states, “I have admired the work of Lester for a while. Her personal interpretation of genetic modification pair with a masterful draftsmanship and the incorporation of other medium has brought to the long-established botanical drawings tradition a 21st C. aesthetic.”

Her drawings are layers of semi-transparent drafting film with a historical botanical drawn on each layer. The transparency of the drafting film allows the line of each botanical to optically blend with the next layer. Elements of each of the plants mix and tangle their visual attributes intermingling disparate species of flora. Floating cells are layered with graphite drawings of separate distorted offspring plants with their color drained, implying a cellular, morphological struggle for resolution.

Lester’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States. Her solo exhibitions include McNay Art Museum, Lawndale Art Center, Houston, TX; Artpace, San Antonio, TX; Institute of Texan Cultures, San Antonio, TX; Southwest School of Art, San Antonio, TX; and the International Museum of Surgical Science, Chicago, IL. She is the recipient of prestigious awards including the 2011 Hunting Prize and the Artist Foundation of San Antonio in 2007. In 2015, she was selected to participate in the Berlin Residency Program by Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum in partnership with Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany. Lester’s artworks are in the permanent collections of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, McNay Art Museum and the University of Texas at San Antonio, among other institutions.

Founded in 2004 and located in the historic Olmos Park District of San Antonio, Ruiz-Healy Art specializes in contemporary art with an emphasis on Latinx, Latin American, and Texas-based artists. To request high-resolution images and more information about the exhibition, please contact the gallery at info@ruizhealyart.com or 210-804-2219. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM and by appointment.

Leigh Anne Lester: No Necessary Time Axis on Evolutionary Novelties will be on view through May 25, 2019.
