Michael Wayne Lackey | Wonders From Above Curated by Lone Star Art Space @ ReMax New Hights
Mar 1 @ 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM
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.

Second Saturday Art Walk and Opening featuring artist Michael Esparza.

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

Civil Pleasures @ The Spire
Mar 16 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Civil Pleasures @ The Spire

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

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

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

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

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

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

Subjective Timbre: Works by Amada Miller @ The Gallery at MBS Yoga
Mar 20 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Subjective Timbre: Works by Amada Miller @ The Gallery at MBS Yoga
Subjective Timbre is an exhibition of works based on the color dualities of Johannes Itten’s theory of color. Using naturally derived and synthetic dye processes, Miller will employ fiber and sculpture to explore an individual’s preferred color combinations. This exhibition will also present a movement based performance influenced by Itten’s core belief system of the Mazdaznan Health & Breath Culture.

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.
