“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.

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.

Sala Diaz 517 Stieren, SA, TX 78210
Curated by Deasil

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
02-23-19 is an exhibition of paintings by Los Angeles-based Seth Alverson. His latest images are representations of the restrictive psychological space in which paintings are made. The work depicts acute solitude, with two bloated arthritic antiheroes straining to forge progress in a pastoral setting. This collection offers an egalitarian perspective of the very act of painting, suggesting that the relationship between virtuosity and failure is much closer—and more mercurial—than it might seem. Through the work’s internal rapport, Alverson imparts how he haggles with his own existential quantifiers and qualifiers in a universal pursuit toward the authentic…the finished…the good.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Alverson’s work has exhibited widely, including at Arthouse at the Jones Center (Austin, TX); Art Palace (Houston, TX); Blaffer Gallery (Houston, TX); Fort Worth Contemporary Art Center; Reynolds Gallery (Richmond, VA); and White Box Gallery (NYC). Alverson is the recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Painters and Sculptors Grant, and earned an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. Alverson currently lives and works in Los Angeles. This is his first exhibition in San Antonio.

ABOUT THE CURATORS
DEASIL is Arturo Palacios & Hilary Hunt, previously the faithful stewards of Art Palace (Austin/Houston, 2005-2017). Together, they today explore the possibilities between commercial gallerists, art consultants and independent curators. “Deasil” means clockwise; dexterous, and following the course of the sun. The team offers a nomadic approach to programming that aims to produce exhibitions through the careful consideration of artistic intent, timing and location.

Form + Function: a visual discussion @ DAMAS

Join us in the Upstairs Studios at Blue Star on First Thursday and First Friday from 6pm-10pm for the opening receptions of our CAM show.

We will be pairing works by artists Linda Perez and Audrey LeGalley to address the idea of worth and to build a discussion around why we value what we value.

About the artists:

Linda Perez became a ceramic artist in 2006 while simultaneously raising a herd of beef cattle on her South Texas ranch. Upon becoming a charter vendor of The Pearl Farmers Market in San Antonio in 2009, she began researching traditional ceramic cookware and integrating these vessels into her practice. Linda furthered her studies at the Southwest School of Art where she now teaches. She has also studied and held residencies at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Her custom designed and fabricated tableware can be found within Supper at Hotel Emma and Cured at The Pearl, among other notable Texas hot spots in San Antonio, Austin, and Marfa. She continues to live and work from her ranch where ceramics and cattle are a daily part of life.

Audrey LeGalley is a Texas-raised artist who utilizes mediums including porcelain and fibers to explore themes of anxiety, fragility and domesticity. Drawing on childhood memories and experiences she discusses familial relationships and emotional structures through sculptures and compositions. Recently, she has been recreating domestic objects out of porcelain to present a metaphor for fragility and fear. Audrey received her BFA from The Southwest School of Art in 2018 and was given the “Best in Show Award” for her work in the Senior Thesis exhibition. She is currently a resident at Clamp Light where she continues to develop and show her work.

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.

ABSENCE OF ALL @ Carbon Bloom at The Upstairs 
Feb 28 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
ABSENCE OF ALL @ Carbon Bloom at The Upstairs 
Jesse Guevara is an artist based out of San Antonio, Texas. Jesse received a BFA and a BA from the University of The Incarnate Word. While his studies were multidisciplinary, there is a common theme in most of his work, Color and Light. Every day we experience the two, from the moment we awake and even in our dreams, the two can be the basis of almost all art forms and their beauty. Jesse explores that single anomalous moment in our everyday lives that carries some value or interest and loves to present his viewers with what our day-to-day moments might miss, the beauty in the mundane.
In pigmentation, the color white is seen as the absence of all colors. For this study “Absence of All” Jesse is experimenting with a room that lacks all color, where the only visible pigment is white. Viewers will experience a setting in which only objects and light communicate, creating an environment that places the viewer in a monochromatic space where only items on the body and people nearby will reflect color. An all-white setting will make the brain uneasy, the mind will want to rationalize, question, and absorb any little color in the room. His art demonstrates that by having little to no color, and the combination of simple geometric objects, the brain will hyper-analyze every detail and any imperfection in the room, the viewer will see only shadows, tints, and minor reflections. In some countries an all-white room can be torturous, in others, an all-white room can be divine, but hopefully, only a brief experience will evoke an emotional response. Whether it be anger, sadness, happiness, or even the absence of emotion, welcome to the Absence of All.

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.

Demos Schmemos
Nicholas Frank
FL!GHT Gallery (Main Space)
Mar. 1 – 31, 2019

Demos Schmemos is Nicholas Frank’s first solo show in San Antonio since his Artpace residency in January 2017. With a set of new sculptures, Frank continues his consideration of audience, passivity, and participation, with a rumination on the corrosion of democracy and mutual trust. Money, a trust exchange, is referenced in the form of Ancient Greek obolus and drachma, set in hand-built ceramic double-spitoons holding leather renderings of beer foam lacing shapes. Flatscreen TV mounts sit dormant, awaiting eyes, like Charon awaiting payment for conveying the dead through their final river crossing. The glittering residue of days gone by reflects more light from the future than the present.

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.

Opening Reception: Cicatrices @ Presa House Gallery
Mar 1 @ 6:00 PM – Mar 30 @ 11:00 PM
Opening Reception: Cicatrices @ Presa House Gallery

Presa House is proud to present a solo exhibition by multidisciplinary artist and Joan Mitchell Foundation grantee Jose Villalobos. In Cicatrices, Villalobos juxtaposes distress with a feeling of comfort deriving from patriarchal and religious social structures which marginalize gay identity. Using found objects, he manipulates material through the context of self-identity as he examines gender roles within family culture. Villalobos demonstrates that dismantling traditional modes of masculine identity center an interstitial space where materiality softens the virility. In his work Villalobos protests the toxicity of machismo though the use of objects, specifically within the norteño culture, that carry a history by deconstructing and altering them. Although new forms are created he demonstrates the battle between the acceptance being a maricón and assimilating to the cultural expectations.  ***This exhibition MAY NOT BE SUITABLE for all ages.***

BIO

Jose Villalobos grew up on the US/Mexico border in El Paso, TX, and was raised in a traditional conservative family. His oeuvre reconciles the identity challenges in his life, caught in between traditional Mexican customs and American mores, as well as growing up with religious ideals that contrast with being gay. In his artistic practice, Villalobos explores traditionally “masculine” objects and softens the virility of these objects. Villalobos received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2016. He was awarded the Artist Lab Fellowship Grant that same year for his work De La Misma Piel at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center. Since then Villalobos has been awarded the Joan Micthell Painters and Sculptors Grant in 2018. He has exhibited and performed at Mexic-Arte Museum, Austin, TX; El Paso Museum of Art, TX; El Museo de Arte de Ciudad Juarez, Mexico; and Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, San Antonio, TX.

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.

ABSENCE OF ALL @ Carbon Bloom at The Upstairs 
Mar 1 @ 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM
ABSENCE OF ALL @ Carbon Bloom at The Upstairs 
Jesse Guevara is an artist based out of San Antonio, Texas. Jesse received a BFA and a BA from the University of The Incarnate Word. While his studies were multidisciplinary, there is a common theme in most of his work, Color and Light. Every day we experience the two, from the moment we awake and even in our dreams, the two can be the basis of almost all art forms and their beauty. Jesse explores that single anomalous moment in our everyday lives that carries some value or interest and loves to present his viewers with what our day-to-day moments might miss, the beauty in the mundane.
In pigmentation, the color white is seen as the absence of all colors. For this study “Absence of All” Jesse is experimenting with a room that lacks all color, where the only visible pigment is white. Viewers will experience a setting in which only objects and light communicate, creating an environment that places the viewer in a monochromatic space where only items on the body and people nearby will reflect color. An all-white setting will make the brain uneasy, the mind will want to rationalize, question, and absorb any little color in the room. His art demonstrates that by having little to no color, and the combination of simple geometric objects, the brain will hyper-analyze every detail and any imperfection in the room, the viewer will see only shadows, tints, and minor reflections. In some countries an all-white room can be torturous, in others, an all-white room can be divine, but hopefully, only a brief experience will evoke an emotional response. Whether it be anger, sadness, happiness, or even the absence of emotion, welcome to the Absence of All.

Opening Reception_COLOR CONCENTRATE: Chroma and Critical Consciousness @ Snake Hawk Press

To the viewer: COLOR CONCENTRATE invites four artists (Carlos Rosales-Silva, Joshua Saunders, Kaeyln D. Rodriguez and Mark Anthony Martinez) to create two new works. One prioritizes color, understood in physical terms. The other considers social aspects of color. In contemporary art and art history, art workers are constantly tasked with making critical decisions within both realms of color. An artist or curator today might need to refer to sources like the Munsell color system alongside critical race theories around color in a given day’s work. Complicated histories and politics inhabit colors like brown, black, white, red and yellow, especially. Recent scientific innovations like Vantablack test the limits of optical perception. The “white cube” continues to be an emblem of exclusion and privilege in the art world. Screen-based devices have transformed how humans experience art and color as well, both optically, as we interface with digitally produced colors, and socially, as these devices and the internet provide unprecedented outreach capacity for movements like Black Lives Matter. Color pervades. The practices of these artists meditate intensively on the interplays, meanings and potentials of color. I will not share with you which of their new works speaks to which priority. That is for you to figure out. Concentrate. -Josh T Franco, Curator

Josh T Franco is an artist with an art history PhD. He completed his dissertation regarding the relationship between rasquachismo and minimalism in Marfa, Texas at Binghamton University in 2016. He currently resides in Hyattsville, Maryland. For more information: www.joshtfranco.com.

Raw Pink @ Mantle Art Space
Mar 2 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Raw Pink @ Mantle Art Space

STATEMENT:

RAW PINK is a collection of works that focuses on the power of femme aesthetics – specifically those connected to trans female self-preservation and survival. As a maker, I am drawn to visual contradictions: the softness and hardness that is evident in feminine and masculine aesthetics and the effects that such visual information yields upon viewers when such opposites collide in a single space.

I call to formalistic cues that imbue soft, haven-like configurations while also using such elements to arrive at compositions that are, at times, foreboding and cacophonous. My aims are to create works that evoke intimacy and sensual memory through a trans female lens while touching on the complexities of my own experiences as a trans woman living in and reacting to contemporary culture.

Mica Lilith Smith is a visual artist and educator. Smith earned her MFA from the University of Cincinnati College of DAAP in 2012. Her work is comprised of fabric installations, paintings, works on paper, and video. Smith currently lives and works in Huntsville, TX.

Calvin Pressley “The Breaks” Closing reception @ Southtown Art gallery
Mar 2 @ 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Calvin Pressley "The Breaks" Closing reception @ Southtown Art gallery

The exhibition “The Breaks” includes direct visual thoughts that occur between or during my process of painting, a process that never fully stops. When artists leave the studio there is no clocking out. One’s mind and creative energy is always working weather it’s through daily mental logs, visual stimulation, or tangible notes of emotions and thoughts; thoughts that might not be fully understood yet by the artist. The drawings in this exhibition represent thoughts and emotions I’ve had when I’m away from my canvases. Some of them inspire larger paintings so they act, in a way, as studies. Others are meditations on paintings that I’ve already created. These works on paper are just as important as the larger paintings and are hopefully received on an intimate level. Reflecting on them has allowed me to peek into corners of my creative thought process that otherwise might remain unnoticed.

Villa Finale: Museum and Gardens Presents Exhibition of Outdoor Sculptures by San Antonio Artist Danville Chadbourne @ Villa Finale: Museum and Gardens
Mar 7 @ 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM
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.

ARTIST BIO:

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.

A special one-night screening of the 2011 film Manhattan Mouse Museum, directed by Tacita Dean, featuring a glimpse of American sculptor and Pop Art icon Claes Oldenburg. For Documenta 5 in 1972, Oldenburg, a life-long collector of small objects, realized his collection as the Mouse Museum. Dean’s film captures his attentiveness to his personal collection 40 years later. The screening, held in conjunction with Documenta 5, a current exhibition at SSA, will be followed by a lecture on museums by artists in Documenta 5 by Chad Dawkins, SSA Curator and Director of Exhibitions. This presentation is made possible courtesy the artist and Marian Goodman Gallery and with the generous support of David F. Bogle, SYNCRO Architecture Studio.

and connotations of the human form, both aesthetic and
political. While some works explore the corporeal form’s
malleable power over the human gaze, others speak to the
political cachet some bodies possess that others aren’t
afforded. The first part of the exhibition, CuerposUnidos:
Anterior, opens on March 8, 2019 at Clamp Light Studios
(1704 Blanco Rd, San Antonio, TX 78212.) The second part,
CuerposUnidos: Posterior, opens on March 22, 2019 also
at Clamp Light. Finally, both bodies of work unite at The
Museum of Human Achievement (916 Springdale Rd,
Austin, TX 78702) on June 14, 2019. A catalog of the
exhibitions will be available for sale.

Lone Star Art Space, 107 Lone Star Blvd. San Antonio, TX. 78204

Lone Star Art Space is honored to present the works of Jimmy LeFlore, a San Antonio based artist working with intriguing subjects and creating his own signature in today’s art community. The work will be on view March 9 – 29, 2019, and is part of the Lone Star Art District Art Walk.

Jimmy LeFlore is a multi-talented artist whose principle focus, over nearly two decades, has been to develop the City’s public art program, Public Art San Antonio (PASA). He’s recently rekindled an interest in making art again after a very long break. He approaches his new work as studies and experiments that consist of flattened compositions using everyday materials, like tape and cardboard, to convey everyday experiences.

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.

Mar 9 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Homebase: On the Cusp, On the Cusp of @ AP Art Lab

On the Cusp, On the Cusp of is an exhibition featuring new works by Chabriely Rivera and Domeinic Jimenez. The two utilize personal reflection as well as universal experiences to investigate the transitory nature of living and dying. Rivera and Jimenez manifest ideas on time, identity, self-perception, and trauma through interactive installations and two-dimensional works.

**Opening Reception: Second Saturday, March 9th from 7-10pm
AP Art Lab, 1906 S Flores SATX 78207

Chabriely was born in Killeen, Texas, and currently resides in San Antonio but growing up constantly moved state to state and even out of the country. She is a new media artist, who works with multiple mediums ranging from movement and vocals to video games and interactive installations. Her work incorporates themes of growth and stages of life, environments and societal situations along with a focus in social justice.

Domeinic Jimenez is a multidisciplinary artist who’s work explores ‘self’ and toys with the many faces and masks that filter when dealing with identity. The work often makes use of various disciplines and utilizes the found object, recontextualizes technology and printed ephemera to discuss identity.

Homebase is an interdisciplinary event series that provides the pop-up gallery experience for those interested in new media art and experimental music practices. Homebase has shown in the Upstairs Studios at Blue Star and recently closed Corporeal Landscapes at Sala Diaz.

Ernesto Walker

Exhibition Statement

This project consists of a series of video-holograms entitled Antigravity that are projected from gadget screens through an accessory that creates the effect of a floating object and helps the image emerge from the screen. The general idea has been developed for its exhibition at The Museum of Pocket Art, a disruptive exhibition space that’s contained on the inside of an Ipod. In these regards, Antigravity is directly related to the nature of MoPA and intends to generate reflections not only about the artwork, but about the platform itself. The holograms are played with the help of an accessory that’s attached to the screen and provokes the effect of three-dimensional objects floating outside the device. Having the image emerging from the screen seeks for an experience that expands the visual possibilities of the screen and generates more ephemeral content. These gestures are combined with the fact that the artwork is played online from a controlled server, so that video presented does not reside in the device nor the server but can only exist by the combination of the played file and the screen accessory. In this regard, the technology only serves as a conduit for the contemplation of an image that poetically just travels through the system but does not touch it.

About the Museum of Pocket Art (MoPA)

The Museum of Pocket Art began fifteen years ago with an idea that everyone should carry with them a small artwork in a pocket to enrich their day and share with others. MoPA developed this idea and organized it into a formal venue for contemporary artists and patrons.

MoPA introduces artwork from contemporary artists in an intimate and personal way. The Museum displays works of art created to fit in the pocket, usually around the size of a business card, in galleries selected to best frame the work, which range from wallets to mobile devices. MoPA shows at the opening of other art exhibits, or “leaches” the reception. At the reception, a MoPA representative approaches people individually and asks if he or she would like to visit the museum, and then shares the works on display. Currently MoPA hosts two shows a year.

I’m leading a workshop featuring my favorite native Texas dye: Cochineal. Cochineal is one of the few natural dyes derived from an insect, acquiring its rich red carmine color by feeding on the prickly pear cactus.

Each participant will be provided with a scarf, scrap fabric to practice with, and all are encouraged to bring one small 100% cotton, linen, wool, or silk item. Please note that synthetic blend material will not yield desired results.

This workshop is 3 hours long, snacks, refreshments and mimosas will be provided, feel free to BYOB. Cost of workshop includes all materials and a natural dye cochineal kit to take home.

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).

“An evocative exhibition of socially insightful iterations that blend the conceptual ambiguity of fine art with decided reformulations of traditional apparel. Contemporary timelines will be spotlighted critically in an atmosphere of reverse participation that celebrates individual originality while challenging the institutionalized esoteric.
Style as experience, exposes the subliminal.”

Poca Madre Arts in collaboration with Clamp Light
Studios are pleased to present CuerposUnidos, which will
first exist in two parts in San Antonio and come together as one
exhibition in Austin. CuerposUnidos presents the work of 14

artist and curators Michael Anthony García and Jose
Villalobos as a means of speaking to varied representations
and connotations of the human form, both aesthetic and
political. While some works explore the corporeal form’s
malleable power over the human gaze, others speak to the
political cachet some bodies possess that others aren’t
afforded. The first part of the exhibition, CuerposUnidos:

Instant Vista (Opening) @ PLAYhouse
Mar 23 @ 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Instant Vista (Opening) @ PLAYhouse

“Instant” camera, “instant” pictures, “instant” memory. In 1948 Polaroid ushered in the pleasure of “instant” gratification to American consumers wishing to capture their memories in the moment of their making. By 1963 the Polaroid Land Camera was the rage. And although the competition, Kodak, had instamatic cameras that were easy to load, point and shoot, you still had to go through the process of processing. Today, after a half-century of technological advances, with “Instagram” offering instantaneous sharing and dissemination of selfies on devices, Polaroids – and other analogue processes – are making a nostalgia-fueled comeback.

Artist Andrew Ranville bears this history in mind in his Polaroid prints, which treat the unique Polaroid print object as sculpture and icon. Referencing the photo object as a part of the pictorial process, he then makes the actual Polaroids precious by showcasing them in display cases, or hanging them like icons on walls.

The PLAYhouse becomes a miniature temple for Ranville’s Polaroids in the exhibition “Instant Vista”. The vastness of the landscapes that comprise their subject matter is underscored by the miniature, intimate space inside the PLAYhouse. Here the venue and the objects interact as the PLAYhouse windows frame their own vistas of the outdoors and beyond.

Andrew Ranville was born 1981 in Michigan, United States. He lived and worked in London from 2006–2016, receiving his MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art in 2008. Ranville’s expeditions, installations, sculptures, architectural interventions, photographs and films explore ideas related to landscape and community. The balance between the formal and functional aspects of the work often elicits viewer interaction, and is realized using ecologically sensitive methods which emphasize revitalization and resilience.

Ranville’s work has been exhibited internationally and installations of his work can be found—or have been shown—in countries including Australia, China, Costa Rica, Finland, Iceland, Morocco, Russia, Spain, UK and the USA. Ranville cofounded and developed the Rabbit Island Residency program, periodically living and working on the remote, 91-acre island located in Lake Superior. The Rabbit Island Foundation is a registered non-profit, with Ranville acting as Director and residency administrator.

#me: exploring online and IRL identity through art making @ Ouvert Studio

#me: exploring online and IRL identity through art making @ Ouvert Studio

Crea and Ouvert Studio present “#me”, a workshop where teens can explore how social media shapes their identity through a collaborative contemporary art project.

Social media is a space for youth to experiment, create, and define their identities, but the online experiences that shape those identities are heavily designed by the platforms on which they take place. This reality creates an identity feedback loop. You shape the content you put online and simultaneously the content you experience shapes you. As a result, it can be hard to determine where you end and the internet begins. Our lives are a web of online and IRL (in-real-life) experiences that can’t be easily disentangled. This workshop is an opportunity to navigate this reality in community.

Open to 10th Grade through College Students

In this workshop, you will:

Learn how social media platforms collect and categorize your data.

Locate the “categories” that Facebook and Instagram use to classify your identity.

Evaluate if social media “categories” reaffirm or divert from their real life identity.

Explore how your online and real-life identities connect by collaborating to build a IRL identity network. This network will be on display at Ouvert through March as part of Contemporary Art Month.

Equip yourself with tools and best practices to protect your online privacy.

Arcane Wilderness @ Mantle Art Space

Mantle Art Space presents Arcane Wilderness, a solo exhibition by multidisciplinary artist Joe Hedges. Hedges will present works he calls “hypercombines”: oil paintings on wood and canvas that have new media components. Hedges’ art is largely about the tension between the natural world and media technologies. In this show, by presenting hand-painted visions of caves and forests and alongside glowing tablets and laptops, the exhibition provides opportunities for viewers to reflect on the screen-based experience of daily life in the twenty-first century.

Joe Hedges (b. 1980) is currently living in Washington state. He has exhibited painting, digital imaging, installation, music and video in galleries and museums internationally. www.joehedges.com

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.

Closing _COLOR CONCENTRATE: Chroma and Critical Consciousness @ Contemporary Art Month CAMMIE Awards 2019 @ Chris Park at Ruby City
Mar 29 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Closing _COLOR CONCENTRATE: Chroma and Critical Consciousness @ Contemporary Art Month CAMMIE Awards 2019 @ Chris Park at Ruby City

To the viewer: COLOR CONCENTRATE invites four artists (Carlos Rosales-Silva, Joshua Saunders, Kaeyln D. Rodriguez and Mark Anthony Martinez) to create two new works. One prioritizes color, understood in physical terms. The other considers social aspects of color. In contemporary art and art history, art workers are constantly tasked with making critical decisions within both realms of color. An artist or curator today might need to refer to sources like the Munsell color system alongside critical race theories around color in a given day’s work. Complicated histories and politics inhabit colors like brown, black, white, red and yellow, especially. Recent scientific innovations like Vantablack test the limits of optical perception. The “white cube” continues to be an emblem of exclusion and privilege in the art world. Screen-based devices have transformed how humans experience art and color as well, both optically, as we interface with digitally produced colors, and socially, as these devices and the internet provide unprecedented outreach capacity for movements like Black Lives Matter. Color pervades. The practices of these artists meditate intensively on the interplays, meanings and potentials of color. I will not share with you which of their new works speaks to which priority. That is for you to figure out. Concentrate. -Josh T Franco, Curator
