“Reclaimed” at Space Gallery @ Space Gallery
Mar 10 2018 @ 12:00 PM – Jan 26 2019 @ 5:00 PM
"Reclaimed" at Space Gallery @ Space Gallery  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Linda Pace Foundation announces its 2018 exhibition, Reclaimed, a presentation of 25 monochromatic works by some of the most influential contemporary female artists working today, all drawn from the Foundation’s diverse collection. Artists include Laura Aguilar, Dorothy Cross, Judy Dater, Annette Messager, Lorraine O’Grady, Robyn O’Neil, Linda Pace, Tracey Rose, Lara Schnitger and Kiki Smith, with works spanning 1975 through 2009.

As the title implies, the exhibition addresses the concept of ownership—both literally and figuratively—and the notion of “reclaiming” what’s ours, from our lands and governments to our physical bodies and basic human rights. Central to each of the works on view are themes of nature, identity and the female form, often times as a depiction of non-traditional feminine ideals. For instance, in Mexican-American photographer Laura Aguilar’s self-portrait series, Stillness, the artist displays her large, naked body against the natural landscape. By fusing the cracked earth, bulbous rocks and knotted tree trunks of the San Antonio wilderness with the curvatures and folds of her own unconventional shape, Aguilar asserts her beauty as an extension of nature.

Other artists in the exhibition address these themes by exploring the decentralization of the human body. In Annette Messager’s sculptural installation Mes voeux sous filets, dozens of photographs, each containing a single foot, mouth, ear, nose, breast, etc. hang beneath a layer of netting. Inspired by religious relics historically hung from church ceilings, Messager employs these symbols as a commentary on blurred gender binaries and the widespread objectification of the physical form.

Similarly, in Landscape (Western Hemisphere), a single channel video installation, Lorraine O’Grady’s hair serves as the primary subject. Filmed at an extreme close-up and presented without context, the gently-blowing strands are reminiscent of a dense forest, and by drawing this comparison between African American femininity and the western world, O’Grady points to the fraught history of colonization and its continued effects on racial equality today.

Throughout the exhibition, the color palette—or lack thereof—and focus on photography, film, cast sculpture and works on paper, underscores the seriousness of the subject matter and harkens back to more traditional methods of artistic production. A departure from the Foundation’s typical spotlight on experimental and new media works, this unexpected selection provides insight into the depth and variedness of the permanent collection.

About Linda Pace Foundation

Linda Pace Foundation is committed to the charitable vision of its founder. Guided by the donor’s conviction that contemporary art is essential to a dynamic society, Linda Pace Foundation fosters the creation, presentation and understanding of innovative expression through contemporary art.

 Linda Pace Foundation publicly exhibits its collection through loans to museums and Space Gallery, its public exhibition gallery. Free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday, 12 noon – 5pm, Space Gallery showcases the collection of late philanthropist and artist Linda Pace, as well as related contemporary art exhibitions on an ongoing basis. Visitors enter through Chris Park to access Space Gallery, experiencing the meandering beauty of another of Linda Pace’s creations.

Since 2007, the Foundation has loaned hundreds of works to institutions such as: Pulitzer Arts Center in St. Louis, Missouri, Gwangju Biennale in South Korea, Tate in London, MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass., Brooklyn Museum in New York, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey – MARCO in Mexico and others.

The Foundation fulfills Linda Pace’s vision of supporting the work of international contemporary artists. Acquisitions typically echo the themes and character of Pace’s own collecting, which favored works that reflected a feminist perspective, engaged social issues and considered aspects of spirituality and beauty.

Since Linda Pace’s death in 2007, the Foundation has steadfastly worked towards realizing her vision, in fact her mandate – to create a contemporary art center for the community, artists and the world to experience contemporary art. Sir David Adjaye has designed a building, which will open to the public in 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. The building will exhibit the Foundation’s growing collection and serve as a destination for visitors to contemplate and experience adventurous artwork from the recent past.

SPACE, the Linda Pace Foundation Gallery, is free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday, 12 noon–5PM.

St. Paddy’s Day Beer Release @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co.
Mar 17 @ 5:00 PM – Mar 18 @ 1:00 AM
St. Paddy's Day Beer Release @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co. | San Antonio | Texas | United States

No fake green beer at our St. Paddy’s Day Party (you’re welcome). Instead, ring in this year’s National Drinking Holiday with the much anticipated return of our HighWheel Irish Red Ale.

The easy-drinking, Irish-style red ale is full of dark and roasted malts that create a rich malty sweetness with accents of toffee and toast. English hops varieties – UK Fuggle and East Kent Goldings – provide an earthy, balanced bitterness to a traditional ale that finishes dry.

Come early. Stay late.

Sláinte!

“Resurrection” works by Tom Turner @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co.
Mar 17 @ 7:00 PM – Mar 31 @ 10:00 PM
"Resurrection" works by Tom Turner @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co. | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Resurrection, a collection of waveform photographs, explores the representation of landscape as a way of seeing. Using topography, the photographic frame creates a trompe l’oeil, generating ambiguous, or even alien, perceptions with little or no anchorage. Terraforming the land in their mind’s eye, the viewer generates mountains, valleys, and impact craters in an attempt to understand and transform wilderness into landscape.

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.

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 raised in Crystal City, Texas. She received her BA in Visual Arts and Sociology from Columbia University. After a semester in the MFA Design+Technology program at Parsons The New School, she took 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 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 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.
