Homage @ Blue Star Contemporary | San Antonio | Texas | United States

HOMAGE

February 2 – May 7, 2017
Opening reception is February 2 from 6 – 9 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Main Gallery
Featuring artists David Almaguer, Joe Harjo, Jennifer Khoshbin, Michele Monseau, Andrei Renteria, Anthony Rundblade, Ed Saavedra

In celebration of BSC’s 30th birthday, Homage pays tribute to the exhibition that started it all back in June of 1986, The Blue Star Exhibition. The selected artists were asked to respond to an artwork from the original exhibition, but were only given the title and description details, and prompted to make a new work inspired by these details, without ever having seen the original work. The new artworks range from screenprints to video work to sculpture, providing an interesting take on the exhibition that was the inception of Blue Star Contemporary.

The Blue Hour (A clock stopped)

February 2 – May 7, 2017

Middle Gallery

Featuring Jessica Halonen

The Blue Hour (A clock stopped), investigates the historical intersection between art and science through the exploration of the pigment Prussian blue. The color Prussian Blue was originally discovered in an 18th century Berlin alchemist laboratory when a contaminated experiment resulted in the first synthetically produced pigment. No one could have predicted the far-reaching effect this accidental discovery would have on multiple facets of history, including the instant impact it had on painting by creating an affordable source of the color blue, its unfortunate role in the creation of the poison used by the Nazis during WWII, and its use today in the treatment for radiation exposure.
The works in this exhibition, ranging from oil on linen to sculpture, tap into the cultural and social associations the color blue evokes for many: nostalgia and loss. The piece New Years Gift 1883 (Flowers after Manet), for example, is a cyanotype reproduction of one of Manet’s last paintings: an image of one of the many bouquets of flowers the ailing, bed-ridden Manet was given by friends and family in the last year of his life.
Moments of transition such as this reverberate throughout the project and are echoed in the project’s title, The Blue Hour (A clock stopped), which refers not only to the pigment but also to an atmospheric phenomenon, the elusive period between day and night when a fleeting vibrant blue illuminates the sky.

Puro – On the Edge of Future (Symposium) @ BRICK
Feb 21 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Puro - On the Edge of Future (Symposium) @ BRICK  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

UTSA architecture group, panelists, explore the meaning of Puro in symposium at Brick in Blue Star on Feb. 21

WHAT: Dr. Antonio Petrov, assistant professor in the UTSA College of Architecture, Construction and Planning, invites San Antonio to engage in dialogue to gather a broad understanding of Puro. We hope to shed some light onto its meaning and how it materializes through the lenses of art, music, graffiti, performance, food, religion, cultural history, film, social media, TV, marketing, philosophy, and literature. The symposium, which includes UTSA students, will be led by community members who embody the term.

Puro |ˈpo͝orō|
The statement San Antonio is “Puro” is possibly a provocation. A city the size of San Antonio with all its cultural layers is so much more than one term could describe, but yet, Puro exemplifies something that belongs to all of us; an expression; attitude; a cultural sensibility; betterment; collective accomplishments; something precious the city is dearly holding on to. For some, it is reflected in rituals, art, tastes, values, aesthetics, and a certain sense of authenticity. For others, it is an underlying vibe or lifestyle that exemplifies the social fabric of San Antonio. Of all things, however, it is an active expression of a city that filters through all parts of public life. Architecture, as such, and the way its physical manifestations are contributing to how people use, create, and live in space, one could argue, has not embraced what characterizes Puro. The aesthetics of Puro are mentioned in relation to artistic movements such as expressionism, minimalism, and surrealism. In architectural discourses, however, Puro’s underlying aesthetic could be seen as kitsch, hypernormal, or ordinary; architects fear to design something that could be considered ordinary, kitsch, or not special. Though Puro defies categorization and is ubiquitous to San Antonio, this one-day symposium aims to recover what makes and shapes it and how this might translate into architecture. Through the lens of art, music, graffiti, performance, religion, cultural history, film, social media, TV, philosophy, and literature we hope to explore values, attitudes, and cultural sensibilities and how they inform the relationship between the social and the physical shaping of our city.

As San Antonio is “on the edge of future” and contemporary urban design is not only a matter of iconic architecture and ambitious masterplans, we argue, Puro is about social and cultural sustainability through which formal and informal practices not only shape the environment but also address urban problems and inequalities. Perhaps Puro is the recognition of a “new urban frame of mind” our city needs moving forward with designers that embody emancipatory processes of how we think together, experiment, collaborate, and cooperate in open and active processes of shaping and defining urban space as we are straddling the edge of future. We hope to initiate dialogue and discuss possible ways to integrate the social and cultural fabric into new ways to co-design, co-produce, co-own, and co-manage the spaces we live in. This, of course, raises the question of the role of the architect and planner in the process of developing these alternative models of urban habitation. As a result we hope this symposium can identify alternative models, ideas, and actionable objectives that build on local know-how, craftsmanship, cultural sensibilities, attitudes, and interests and thus have more direct relationships and a more Puro way of critically mediating between ethical positions and aesthetic formulations.

Of Country and Culture: The Lam Collection of Contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art @ San Antonio Museum of Art
Feb 24 – May 14 all-day
Of Country and Culture: The Lam Collection of Contemporary Australian Aboriginal Art @ San Antonio Museum of Art | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Of Country and Culture celebrates the gift to the Museum of over one hundred objects created by Aboriginal artists since the mid-1990s. This extraordinary collection, which includes a significant number of works by women artists, comes to the Museum from May and Victor Lam.

The Lams’ enthusiasm for contemporary Aboriginal art began when they visited Spirit Country, a 2000 traveling exhibition organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and presented at the San Antonio Museum of Art, that showcased the Gantner Myer collection of Aboriginal art. Inspired by the remarkable objects on view, May, a long-time Museum Trustee, and her daughter Dorothy traveled to Australia where they visited Aboriginal communities across the continent and amassed an outstanding collection.

Organized thematically, Of Country and Culture reveals powerful, recurring themes in contemporary Aboriginal art, which have ancient roots, including body and sand paintings and Aboriginal rock art dating back 40,000 years. The works by these contemporary artists depict many of the designs and subjects of their ancestors and demonstrate similar cultural ties to land, heritage, and visual communication. At the same time, there are also connections to themes in international contemporary art, such as identity, materiality, and abstraction.

The exhibition presents a diverse range of materials and regional styles—from the intricately painted bark paintings of Arnhem Land, to the Pukumani grave poles of the Tiwi Islands, and the boldly colored abstract paintings of the Western Desert.

Blue Star Arts Complex in San Antonio, Texas

FL!GHT opens two exhibitions featuring rediscovered

early works by renowned painter Ángel Rodríguez-Díaz

on February 2.

SAN ANTONIO (December 23, 2016) – FL!GHT in the Blue Star Art

Complex presents two exhibitions devoted to Ángel Rodríguez-Díaz

that shed light on the origins of the Puerto Rican native’s dazzling

portrait technique. A search of the artist’s studio revealed nine rolled-

up canvases and a number of other paintings that had not been

unpacked since the artist moved to San Antonio from New York in

1995. The majority of these rediscovered paintings are on display at

FL!GHT. Most of them have never been publicly exhibited, and none

of the rediscovered paintings have been seen by anyone in over

twenty years.

After achieving considerable success as an undergraduate,

Rodríguez-Díaz received his BFA degree at the University of Puerto

Rico in Rio Piedras in 1978. He moved to New York City in 1978,

where he found a place within the gay and Latino communities.

Rodríguez-Díaz received his MFA degree at Hunter College in New

York City in 1982.

Rodríguez-Díaz utilizes dramatized self-portraiture as a vehicle for

social commentary and political criticism. He views portraiture as a

distillation of the sitter’s essential traits, as well as an opportunity to

celebrate diversity and the dignity of the self.

El Mero Chile / The Full Monty in the FL!GHT Salon gallery

The Salon gallery exhibition celebrates the beauty and sensuality of

the male body with paintings made in New York between 1983 and

1992. The rolled-up paintings found in the artist’s studio include an

untitled painting from 1983 that combines influences from El Greco

and Francis Bacon, and “The Cannibal” (1988), a hyper-masculine

nude that addresses Caribbean stereotypes. It includes “Adam” (1991),

Rodríguez-Díaz’s most famous nude. A large-scale portrait of a black

man who has seemingly jumped out of a tropical fire, Adam is a

critique of African slavery in the Caribbean and of colonial wars of

conquest. It became a cause célèbre when it was censored in a New

York exhibition in 1992. Rodríguez-Díaz quit painting male nudes that

year because most exhibition venues would not display them. He

regards these restrictions as a form of prior restraint. FL!GHT is

against censorship in the arts and is proud to present this exhibition,

which is the first one devoted to Rodríguez-Díaz’s nudes.

Ángel Rodríguez-Díaz: Nueva York – San Antonio in the FL!GHT

main gallery.

The main gallery exhibition emphasizes Rodríguez-Díaz’s New York

period and it features many of the recently rediscovered

paintings. One of the highlights is an undated double self-portrait from

1987 that references Frida Kahlo with a skeletal pelvis and a large,

disembodied heart. It is the most dramatic example of four paintings

on colored and textured fabric in this exhibition that inspired the

painted fabric patterns that are featured in most of Rodríguez-Díaz’s

subsequent paintings. Kahlo utilized self-portraiture to create complex

narratives and her art is the most important precedent for Rodríguez-

Díaz’s utilization of self-portraiture as a vehicle for social criticism.

Rodríguez-Díaz experimented with a wide range of painterly effects

and artistic sources in the works in this exhibition. Paintings made in

San Antonio include a partially finished portrait based on Franciso

Goya’s “Naked Maja”.

Reception dates:

6-10 pm, February 2 & 3 and March 2 & 3.

Lecture:

“The Penis in Art: A Short History,” by Guest Curator Ruben C.

Cordova, date and time to be announced.

SKINS featuring Elizabeth Carrington @ Mercury Project | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Elizabeth Carrington’s new works resonate with power and movement. The paintings conjure up the passage of time represented by candy colored cakes and icons, heroic swords and kingly rings.The possibility of peace and happiness are woven through her paintings as unexpected bold graffiti images. Contradictory commands of “say anything ” and  “shut up” might present a commentary on current world affairs but are left for individual interpretation.

SKINS, a series of work inspired by travel, nature, the future, revolution and the ever-changing world we live in. this show is about bringing together elements and layers from experiences to create a visual narrative that should be fun, playful, introspective and questions the status quo.

Mar 2 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Things We Used to Know @ Terminal 136 at Blue Star Contemporary Art Complex  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Open Reception: Thursay, March 2nd, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm.

Things We Used To Know emerges out of connections and parallels discovered in the practices of five artists living in different parts of the country. Born of a common appreciation for space travel, mirrors, the mapping of uncharted wilderness, magic, and concepts like Wheeler’s Participatory Anthropic Principle – the proposal that the universe requires conscious observers to exist – this exhibition reframes natural history and external observation as a form of self-investigation and vice versa. Here is the world taking measure of itself, the cosmos peering in as we peer out.

Wesley Harvey: Pretty Hurts @ Hello Studio
Mar 2 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Wesley Harvey: Pretty Hurts @ Hello Studio | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Hello Studio is pleased to present Wesley Harvey’s most recent body of work, Pretty Hurts. Harvey, a former San Antonio resident, continues his investigation into Queer Theory, examining the ideas of deviance and perfection associated with homosexuality. “Perfection, at least in terms of being a gay man, has become quite the disease. Perfection is sought after no matter what the cost or consequences. I want to address the social and cultural differences of being gay and examine not only the normative behavior but also the deviant lifestyle that often gets neglected and chastised.”

Harvey will present a new body of functional and sculptural ceramics, as well as works on paper.

Pretty Hurts is on view March 2 – March 18.

"ADULTS" An Exhibition by Ana Hdz-Burwell @ Dorćol Distilling  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Artist Statement

I paint to better understand myself and world around me. My intent is to look at and portray Millennials as they deal with contemporary situations. The characters in my paintings, which I like to call “adults”, have classical Greek busts as heads with incomplete skeletons as bodies with emphasis on their rib cages and pelvis. The rib cage is where we think we store our feelings – in our hearts – and the pelvis is where our reproductive organs are. The classical busts represent a preconceived image of perfection and are also one of the most copied styles in art; they are supposed to be cool, blank and objective. The “adults” have arms and hands to provide for themselves and express themselves but lack legs and feet because they cannot escape their current situation. I place these “adults” in surreal scenes while giving the scenes aspects of ordinary everyday life. In these pieces I am exploring individual identity with the use of cross-cultural ideas with an emphasis on the exploration of the inner self.

Artist statement:
This work, as all my work, is the result of all that has preceded it. My vision is only that which I feel – a nebulous hum that would have no real meaning if I did not attempt to make it visual. I strive to do this with iconography that has slowly evolved as I mature. I see most of my work as one frame, one snapshot, in a life of personal observation and inner search. It is a lifelong process of finding my own voice.John Mattson 2017

Exhibition: Artist Cheryl Sheehan @ Carver Community Cultural Center

Exhibition: Artist Cheryl Sheehan @ Carver Community Cultural Center | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Debut exhibition of works by artist Cheryl Sheehan. Gallery hours: M-F, 8-4:30; 4/8, 6-9 PM

Debut exhibition opening for artist Cheryl Sheehan. With intuition as her guide for colors and material and inspiration from nature, childhood stories and fairy tales, Sheehan’s work begins with the eyes of her characters, which are often described as “pretty girls.” Her intent is use art to convey personality and emotion, with any concept of aesthetic beauty the creation and interpretation of the beholder.

CHERYL SHEEHAN – Artist Statement
I was never the artist in my family – my father passed his innate talent to my sister and it was her gift that was recognized and fostered. But I always loved art supplies and as I got older, I became quite the collector of various media and substrates, but it ended there. I rarely took the first step of putting pencil or paint to paper without an overwhelming sense of frustration and dread at it never being what I wanted immediately. I wanted to compose the perfect symphony without ever playing a single note. Fast forward to several years ago when I was introduced to an online art class and I slowly realized that for me, like so many of us, art was a skill that I could learn and practice was the key. I might not have the natural ability but I did have a strong desire to create.
The two aspects of my art that I focus on the most are creating backgrounds full of color and sparkle and a subject – most often a girl, where her eyes are central. As the age-old metaphor relates, “Eyes are the window to the Soul” and they are always the starting point of my character. Although these subjects can be viewed as “pretty girls,” my intention is to portray a personality or emotion that is attractive to the viewer and concentrate on that rather than her aesthetic beauty. I work quite freely, letting my intuition guide my choices of color and material. Much of my inspiration comes from nature and childhood stories and fairy tales.
I rarely create pieces that are “dark” or explore the negative side of life. I want people to feel a smile in their heart or a child-like joy when they look at my work. And I want people to look deep into my work – the backgrounds are often multi-layered and upon closer inspection you can often see words, music, or other ephemera hidden beneath the surface. This compounds my desire for the work to speak beyond being just a “pretty picture.” We are all complex creatures living in a complex world and even the simplest amongst us is more than is initially apparent.
Influences
Without a doubt, the work of online modern-day teachers such as Tamara LaPorte, Suzi Blu, Mindy Lacefield, Flora Bowley, among others, is pretty evident in my paintings. Their passion and guidance has helped me to find my own style, one that is grows every time I pick up the paintbrush. More importantly, they have convinced me that everyone is an artist and that includes me!

“INTO THE VOID” PAINTINGS BY ERIC BREISH @ AnArte Gallery
Mar 9 @ 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
"INTO THE VOID" PAINTINGS BY ERIC BREISH @ AnArte Gallery | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Eric Breish:
SAN ANTONIO, TX- AnArte Gallery is thrilled to be hosting Eric Breish’s opening of a uniquely hypnotizing exhibit entitled “Into The Void” on Thursday, March 9, 2017 from 5-8pm! Live music by Antique Sunlight, & Coyote Sings! Whiskey & vino reception, lite bites, art talk & more! Exhibit on view through April 1, 2017.
Breish states, “We live in such uncertain times where information from most media sources is fear based. Hysterical panic stemming from potential financial collapse, race-based tensions, social inequalities, wars, and a general lack of humanity create visions of crisis at every turn. My show entitled, “Into the Void,” is an escape from the constant bombardment of social tensions. The idea is to transform the gallery into a deep space, creating a visual experience that will transport the viewer into a realm outside of our world, where there are neither messages nor intentions put forth by the work. Nothing to digest nor interpret, no hidden meanings, just a visceral experience being fed by paintings that represent nebulas, supernovas and the vast galaxies that exist in the void of our expanding outer space. One’s presence is required to fully interact with these three-dimensional paintings, presenting themselves as holographs as you move around each individual piece.”

Eric Breish was born in Houston Texas. Upon graduating high school, Breish joined the US Marine Corps in 1997. After being honorably discharged as a decorated Sergeant in 2001, he attended Full Sail University in Florida where he earned an A.S. degree in Recording Arts, a B.S. degree in Entertainment Business and graduated Salutatorian in 2005. Upon graduation, he returned to San Diego where he worked for a company that designed clothing and accessories for action sports companies like Hurley and Billabong. It was these formative years that planted the creative seed that ultimately grew into an interest in visual arts. In 2007, Breish moved to Houston, TX, and during his visit, he discovered the New Gallery where he was first introduced to the work of internationally known artist Andreas Nottebohm. He was immediately fixated with metal art. After meeting with Andreas, they developed a strong friendship and Breish began studying under his guidance and continues to work alongside Nottebohm in San Antonio, TX. It was this mentorship that pushed him to find his artistic voice while carrying on the tradition of this very unique style of metal-based art. Although he doesn’t currently have a formal degree in art, Breish believes the lack of formal education has allowed him to create a style that is not only unique and powerful, but one that cannot be learned in a classroom. Breish consistently shows throughout south Texas and his work resides in numerous private and public collections throughout the US.

Dreams Are For Those Who Sleep @ Provenance Gallery
Mar 11 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Dreams Are For Those Who Sleep @ Provenance Gallery  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Provenance Gallery is pleased to present, “Dreams Are for Those Who Sleep,” an exhibition featuring recent works on paper by San Antonio-based artist, Jose Fidel Sotelo. These large-scale graphite drawings are a departure from the intimate, primarily black-and-white drawings Sotelo is best known for. In this body of work, Sotelo continues to explore the meditative quality of repetitive symbolic imagery, but on a larger scale and in a more subtle tonal palette. This aesthetic shift imbues the work with an ethereal feeling, and the scale of the work envelops the viewer in Sotelo’s nocturnal world. Based on his experience of dreaming and insomnia, these autobiographical dreamscapes combine imagery from Aztec mythology and memories of the first stages of existence of a Mexican American family.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jose Fidel Sotelo has been active in the arts since 2005. He started his studies in design and photography in 2004. A year later he was moved to start painting. Sotelo considers himself a self-taught artist, but his paintings carry a lot of influence from his studies in design – using patterns and symmetry to express his relationship with the seen and unseen world and his experiences. In more recent years his work has moved from colorful paintings to black and white illustrations, prints, and drawings. As Sotelo’s art moves through its process, one thing that continues to hold true throughout its stages, is his effort to bring together the ancient symbols of his Mexican ancestors, the natural world, and the beauty of the mundane things from everyday life.

ABOUT THE GALLERY
Provenance Gallery is an independent art space dedicated to featuring innovative work by local and regional emerging artists.

About the Museum of Pocket Art (MoPA)

The Museum of Pocket Art began thirteen 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.

Statement

Since the invention of fabric, its purpose has become vast. From clothing, to art, it may be transformed into almost any form yet it has no defined form in many ways. With this series of works I embrace the gestural forms a fabric maintains while at rest; as it awaits to become something “useful”. I love the way fabric hangs, the way it melts unto the floor when thrown, the way it tells a story. By embellishing and hardening fabric with vivid colors and tangled forms, my intention is to visually destroy every object around it. I want it to take a stance and visually yell, “I am not here awaiting another use! I will no longer abide to your will and time. After today you will see me everywhere!”

Ro - Matúm an Exhibition by Martín C. Rodríguez @ Dorćol Distilling  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Ro – Matúm

Ro-Matúm:  Exploration of one’s culture helps reveal and enhance your underlying identity – your unique meaning, value and character – of the physical and social form.  This identity is reflected through a community’s character and sense of place.  A community’s sense of place is not a static concept; rather, it evolves and develops over time, reflecting the spectrum of social values within and around.  As a first generation mainland Puerto Rican, I have been creatively connecting with my Taino heritage through performance and multidisciplinary work incorporating my indigenous past.

Exhibition runs March11, 2017 – April 29, 2017

Imagination is the Only Weapon (in the war against reality) @ Leal Art Gallery
Mar 18 @ 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Imagination is the Only Weapon (in the war against reality) @ Leal Art Gallery | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Four young artists, Walden Booker, Faith Fisher, Tirzah Lawson and Leroy Winter come together to display their most recent work in an art exhibit during San Antonio’s yearly Contemporary Art Month (CAM) opening March 18th at the Leal Art Gallery titled “Imagination is the Only Weapon (in the war against reality)” curated by Kimberly Garza.

In this exhibit, the talented young artists negotiate between the formal academic structure they have experienced the past four years and the inevitable shift as they transition from Senior’s at the North East School of the Arts (NESA), a competitive Fine Arts magnet program, to their post graduation educational goals. The work covers a range of interpretations of traditional/non-traditional portraits and still lifes that engage the viewer on a creative journey through the visual language of a generation of artists confronted with inevitable growing pains that segue into adulthood.

“Imagination is the Only Weapon (in the war against reality)” is a quote from Lewis Carroll in Alice in Wonderland that illustrates a common thread woven in the work of these four artists. Although the styles vary, the dedication to the development of their skills combined with a creative innate talent is a testament to the power of the imagination and the exploration of art in a contemporary and sometimes skewed social reality.
