East meets West @ Palo Alto College (Project Space Gallery)
Mar 31 @ 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
East meets West @ Palo Alto College (Project Space Gallery) | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Our grand finale event for Contemporary Art Month will be a comparison exhibition between Kenya and Nigeria. ‘East meets West’ provides a balanced approach to understanding the distinctions between African cultures.

In partnership with Palo Alto College, The Olaju Art Group is presenting a contemporary art exhibition that takes a multi-national approach. By infusing authentic aspects of two dominant African societies (Maasai & Yoruba), curator Obafemi Ogunleye is able to bring pieces of Africa to Texas and foster cross-cultural awareness.

In this showcase, Nelson Ngotiek and Temi Coker serve as cultural ambassadors from Kenya and Nigeria, respectively. Photographs and objects from the featured countries will be on display for the month of April at the college’s ‘Project Space Gallery’. Here, students will be introduced to significant themes associated with a region that has proven to be opaque.

This collaboration symbolizes a commitment to the advancement of African arts and culture at the community college. For more information, visit; www.fromwestafrica.org

Journey Into Civilizations Closing Reception @ The Jackson Ranch in the Heart of San Antonio | San Antonio | Texas | United States

> Raised in a family of photographers, musicians and artists in Alamo Heights, Texas, Patrice was taught not only to appreciate art but how to view the world through the lens of a camera by her father, photo journalist, Bob Collins. Hence, Ms. Villastrigo was destined to become an artist herself, also a musician, an author and publisher, among other talents. She travels the world searching for and recording her own view of composition, colour, depth, form and beauty. She sold her paintings, sculpture and photography at her art gallery in Washington. Ms. Villastrigo has a permanent exhibit at The Historic Jackson Ranch.

> “ Since I was a child, my imagination lead me to creative outlets of all kinds, drawing, painting, sculpting, singing, writing, photography, and even designing matching clothes for Barbie and myself. I investigate often uncommon sources to search for that shot combining a perfect composition of color, depth, form, and beauty. Creating art using a variety of resources, I must admit that the camera lens is my favorite medium!”

> Live Music: First ~ pianist Edward Lewis, then, Pete’s Best featuring John Michael Ramirez, Karl Yelderman, Joe Killough and Daryl Chadick. Refreshments Served.

Art in the Garden with Alyson Shotz @ San Antonio Botanical Garden
Jun 30 @ 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Art in the Garden with Alyson Shotz @ San Antonio Botanical Garden | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Blue Star Contemporary and the San Antonio Botanical Garden are delighted to announce Alyson Shotz as the artist for their 2016 Art in The Garden collaboration. Brooklyn- based Shotz will be in attendance at the opening reception on Thursday, June 30, 2016, from 5:30-7:30 pm located at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. This event is free and open to the public.

For her yearlong exhibition at the Garden, Shotz has conceived a newly commissioned large-scale, freestanding steel sculpture, Scattering Screen, which will interact with viewers and the Garden’s natural surroundings. Known for ethereal artworks that build on natural phenomena and play with human perception, her piece for the Garden is a site-specific installation that encourages viewers to engage with the Garden landscape in new ways.

Of this new work, Shotz says, “Scattering Screen is a sculpture that explores the space between things. The small mirrored circles reflect light and scatter the visible surroundings into thousands of tiny pieces, shifting and moving across the sculpture like an analogue screen. The play between the reflections and spaces between reflections draws attention to the idea of solidity itself as the sculpture creates an optical continuum where negative and positive spaces continually intertwine.

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) Featuring Jessica Halonen @ Blue Star Contemporary

The Blue Hour (A clock stopped) Featuring Jessica Halonen @ Blue Star Contemporary | San Antonio | Texas | United States

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.

Love Lettering by Rivane Neuenschwander & Live Performance with Gemini Ink @ SPACE The Linda Pace Foundation Gallery
Feb 2 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Love Lettering by Rivane Neuenschwander & Live Performance with Gemini Ink
Thursday, February 2, 2017 | 6 – 8pm

On Thursday February 2, 2017, the Linda Pace Foundation, will host an evening of live reading and spoken word in collaboration with Gemini Ink. There will be literary performances with the themes of love and chance to accompany the premiere of the video installation, titled Love Lettering (2002) by Rivane Neuenschwander. This film was made in collaboration with her brother, Sergio, in their hometown in Brazil. In the film, Goldfish swim back and forth in bright blue water with tiny banners attached to their tails bearing isolated words that express love, loss and longing. The words begin to form grammatical elements and reveal possible fragments of a love letter.

There will be live poetry and spoken word performances by Alexandra van de Kamp and Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson. Sanderson will also perform with her band The Foreign Arm.

The video installation’s opening reception and live performances will be held at SPACE on Thursday, February 2, 2017 from 6-8 pm. Valentine’s Day inspired refreshments will be provided.

RSVP to hjones@pacefound.org. THE EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

SPACE is located in the northeast corner of CHRISpark. Entrance is at 111 Camp Street, San Antonio, TX 78204.

M*dres Featuring Julia Barbosa Landois
Feb 2 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
M*dres Featuring Julia Barbosa Landois

M*dres

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

Gallery 4

Featuring Julia Barbosa Landois

M*dres is a series of silkscreen prints employing phrases in English and Spanish which contain the words mom/mother/madre. The work examines how gendered language reflects and structures our political and cultural attitudes towards women. Some are common phrases, some are swears, and some are backhanded compliments. In English, using the word “mom” as an adjective automatically devalues what follows, and what follows often has to do with appearance – mom jeans, mom body, mom haircut, etc. The Spanish phrases seem relatively harmless in literal translation, but in context, transform to vulgarities you probably wouldn’t use in the presence of your own mother.

“My interest in these phrases is what they connote for the larger social framing of motherhood, as well as my own paradoxical existence as a caretaker in a profession that lionizes the unattached individual living only for the work.”– Landois

Serious Work, a performance held on January 13, 2017, as part of Landois’ upcoming exhibition, satirically contrasts the banalities of parental life with the performance artist persona, using a smartphone as mediator and monkey wrench. Landois physically manifests the concept of over-sharing while text-messaging with her “mom body” on view, simultaneously highlighting the artistic cliché of nudity as instant gravitas. Though the audience was deprived of their own devices, she ends up receiving and responding to texts from her partner and a friend, exposing the psychic architecture (and clutter) behind even the simplest performance.

Turning Memory Featuring John Steck Jr.

Turning Memory Featuring John Steck Jr.

Turning Memory

February 2 – May 7, 2017

Project Space

Featuring John Steck Jr.

Evoking themes of ephemerality, physicality, materiality, fragility, and mortality, Turning Memory features photographs from the artist’s series Lament (Disappearing photographs). The exhibition also includes two exposure boxes where the images are created during the span of the exhibition, punctuating our need to permanently document and hold a moment longer.

By allowing images to slowly disappear, Steck Jr. calls attention to the medium of photography and its ability to capture memories. Photography is seemingly forever, yet whether physical or digital, the medium remains as impermanent as the moment depicted in its frame.

By manipulating the image-making process of particular images from his archive, he negates the archival function of them. Using gelatin silver paper, but with a non-traditional approach, these images are created without a darkroom or chemicals. Because of this process, the images remain sensitive to light; and, in a fairly short, yet unpredictable amount of time, they will disappear completely. The photographs will shift and change the same way that we change as physical beings. The artist uses this fading process to alter his memories of particular images that he finds disruptive, both visually and internally, due to sensitive memories. These images relate to moments of loss, nostalgia, fondness, and love. This concept has taken on a new meaning for this series and leaves us to consider the fleeting impermanence of materials, objects, images, and life itself, through a medium that is meant to act as a time capsule.

The series consists of unrelated dramas depicting characters dealing with paranormal, futuristic, Kafkaesque, or otherwise disturbing or unusual events; characters who find themselves dealing with these strange, sometimes inexplicable happenings are said to have crossed over into “The Twilight Zone”. Each story typically features a moral and a surprise ending.”

On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour Reaches a 10 Year Milestone
60 Artists Participate in Neighborhood Art Walk Feb. 18-19

When Dale Jenssen moved to San Antonio, specifically the Fredericksburg Road area 10 years ago, she discovered the nonprofit arts organization Bihl Haus Arts and befriended the executive director, Kellen McIntyre.
Through her involvement with Bihl Haus Arts, she learned that the area is home to a number of thriving artists. Jenssen along with McIntyre and Eric Lane, along with local artists David and Maria Guerrero, struck upon the idea of starting a neighborhood art tour. Today, the On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and continues to draw people from across the four corners of San Antonio and other cities, such as Houston and Austin, who come for an intimate peek into the homes and studios of local artists.
“It’s definitely evolved from 27 artists to more than 70 participating artists,” Jenssen said, and that includes the artist herself, who has been showcasing her works to the public ever since the annual gallery stroll began in 2007. She invites the public to stop by her studio, the Jenssen Studio on W. Woodlawn Ave., during the 10th annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour celebrates its 10th anniversary from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, and noon to 5 pm, Sunday, Feb. 21 in the Deco District.
“The On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour is the longest, continuously running, art studio tour in San Antonio,” McIntyre said, adding that Bihl Haus Arts hosts the tour each year. “We have evolved tremendously since its inception 10 years ago.”
“Fred,” as the event is known, is a self-guided tour of private homes, art studios and galleries of more than 70 artists, including painters, sculptors, photographers and metal smiths. In addition, more than 200 musicians, poets, and theater and dance groups help make this community event one of the most diverse studio tours in Texas.
Last year, more than 2,500 locals and visitors walked, biked and drove the meandering 15-mile tour on and off Fredericsksburg Road up and down a 5-mile stretch of Fredericksburg Road to get a first-hand look at the artists working in their studios and to purchase their art, McIntyre said.
Attendees can purchase either the hardcopy color catalog consisting of a map to help people plan their route, artist bios and an image of their work, or the online catalog for $10. For more information, visit www.OnandOffFred.org or call Bihl Haus Arts at (210) 383-9723.
McIntyre, who has lived in the Monticello neighborhood of the Deco District for the past 20 years, envisions the studio tour as helping bring exposure and economic growth to the Fredericksburg Road Cultural Corridor. “I’m proud to say that there has been an investment and development in the neighborhood as an indirect result of the exposure that the Fred Studio Tour has provided to the area over the years,” she said.
The Deco District, she adds, has become a hot spot for many of the Alamo City’s artists. In fact, all artists featured in Fred live and/or work in the surrounding Fredericksburg Road communities: Alta Vista, Beacon Hill, Jefferson, Keystone, Los Angeles Heights, Monticello Park and Woodlawn Lake.
Jenssen, meanwhile, has invited several other artists to display their works at her studio during the Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour. While she specializes in custom and limited-edition light sconces, Jenssen also creates chandeliers; table, floor and hanging lamps; folding screens; tables; mirror and picture frames; punched metal door and cabinet panels; and sculpture.
She also enjoys designing in any architectural style: contemporary, retro, arts and crafts, southwestern or my own quirky amalgam of them all. “I usually work alone, meticulously crafting each piece start to finish and using a variety of techniques and materials,” she said.

On & Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour @ Bihl Haus Arts

On & Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour @ Bihl Haus Arts | San Antonio | Texas | United States

On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour Reaches a 10 Year Milestone
60 Artists Participate in Neighborhood Gallery Walk Feb. 18-19

When Dale Jenssen moved to San Antonio, specifically the Fredericksburg Road area 10 years ago, she discovered the nonprofit arts organization Bihl Haus Arts and befriended the executive director, Kellen McIntyre.
Through her involvement with Bihl Haus Arts, she learned that the area is home to a number of thriving artists. Jenssen along with McIntyre and Eric Lane, along with local artists David and Maria Guerrero, struck upon the idea of starting a neighborhood art tour. Today, the On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and continues to draw people from across the four corners of San Antonio and other cities, such as Houston and Austin, who come for an intimate peek into the homes and studios of local artists.
“It’s definitely evolved from 27 artists to more than 70 participating artists,” Jenssen said, and that includes the artist herself, who has been showcasing her works to the public ever since the annual gallery stroll began in 2007. She invites the public to stop by her studio, the Jenssen Studio on W. Woodlawn Ave., during the 10th annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour celebrates its 10th anniversary from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, and noon to 5 pm, Sunday, Feb. 21 in the Deco District.
“The On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour is the longest, continuously running, art studio tour in San Antonio,” McIntyre said, adding that Bihl Haus Arts hosts the tour each year. “We have evolved tremendously since its inception 10 years ago.”
“Fred,” as the event is known, is a self-guided tour of private homes, art studios and galleries of more than 70 artists, including painters, sculptors, photographers and metal smiths. In addition, more than 200 musicians, poets, and theater and dance groups help make this community event one of the most diverse studio tours in Texas.

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.

Bombay Salsa Co. Celebrating Contemporary Art Month! @ Blue Star Contemporary
Mar 2 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Bombay Salsa Co. Celebrating Contemporary Art Month! @ Blue Star Contemporary  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

We opened in 2011 and are still around trying to preach the gospel that good food is about taking risks. The concept of Bombay Salsa Co started with a late night munchie mix combining tandoori chicken and pico de gallo. Now, a few years later we have converted several connoisseurs; some forcefully, but mostly by offering our captivating cuisine. Even a couple of critics think we’re doing ok, and have mentioned us now and again. Some guests have even invited us to feed their friends, which we do with pleasure serving out of trademark orange truck. Sometimes they ask us to drop it off and leave, but we watch them through the windows and see them gobble it up. We have even married a couple of customers off–taking our homemade goodies and polishing them up for the big stage.

We look forward every week to seeing everybody, because this is our social life. We put in late hours after work or early in the morning, we cut and chop and boil and bake, stir and even shake a bit, just for you our guests. Why ? Because we want you back with your friends— even dragging them by force if you have to — don’t worry we’ll be gentle. If you throw a party, give us a call. We’ll cater it and you’ll be the talk of the town.

Food has always been a passion in our family. In fact, we’ve been serving food in one way or another for four generations. We love food. We delight in preparing it, presenting it, partaking in it, and most importantly watching our friends enjoy it. We love it here in San Antonio our home away from home. So come by, visit us, and enjoy.

M*dres Featuring Julia Barbosa Landois @ Blue Star Contemporary
Mar 2 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
M*dres Featuring Julia Barbosa Landois @ Blue Star Contemporary  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Featuring Julia Barbosa Landois

M*dres is a series of silkscreen prints employing phrases in English and Spanish which contain the words mom/mother/madre. The work examines how gendered language reflects and structures our political and cultural attitudes towards women. Some are common phrases, some are swears, and some are backhanded compliments. In English, using the word “mom” as an adjective automatically devalues what follows, and what follows often has to do with appearance – mom jeans, mom body, mom haircut, etc. The Spanish phrases seem relatively harmless in literal translation, but in context, transform to vulgarities you probably wouldn’t use in the presence of your own mother.

“My interest in these phrases is what they connote for the larger social framing of motherhood, as well as my own paradoxical existence as a caretaker in a profession that lionizes the unattached individual living only for the work.”– Landois

SKINS featuring Elizabeth Carrington @ Mercury Project
Mar 2 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
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.
Things We Used to Know @ Terminal 136 at Blue Star Contemporary Art Complex
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.

Turning Memory Featuring John Steck Jr. @ Blue Star Contemporary
Mar 2 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Turning Memory Featuring John Steck Jr. @ Blue Star Contemporary

Featuring John Steck Jr.

Evoking themes of ephemerality, physicality, materiality, fragility, and mortality, Turning Memory features photographs from the artist’s series Lament (Disappearing photographs). The exhibition also includes two exposure boxes where the images are created during the span of the exhibition, punctuating our need to permanently document and hold a moment longer.

By allowing images to slowly disappear, Steck Jr. calls attention to the medium of photography and its ability to capture memories. Photography is seemingly forever, yet whether physical or digital, the medium remains as impermanent as the moment depicted in its frame.

By manipulating the image-making process of particular images from his archive, he negates the archival function of them. Using gelatin silver paper, but with a non-traditional approach, these images are created without a darkroom or chemicals. Because of this process, the images remain sensitive to light; and, in a fairly short, yet unpredictable amount of time, they will disappear completely. The photographs will shift and change the same way that we change as physical beings. The artist uses this fading process to alter his memories of particular images that he finds disruptive, both visually and internally, due to sensitive memories. These images relate to moments of loss, nostalgia, fondness, and love. This concept has taken on a new meaning for this series and leaves us to consider the fleeting impermanence of materials, objects, images, and life itself, through a medium that is meant to act as a time capsule.

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.

Paola Delfín | Effloresce Preview Reception | Meet the Artist @ S.M.A.R.T.
Mar 4 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Paola Delfín | Effloresce Preview Reception | Meet the Artist @ S.M.A.R.T.  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Driven by a passion to make her art available to everyone, Mexico City-based urban artist, Paola Delfín creates highly technical paintings depicting the complex relationship between the human body and other organic forms. In addition to gallery exhibitions, her public artworks are marveled at worldwide in countries such as Mexico, Germany, Ukraine, China, USA, Spain, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Brazil and Romania, to name a few.

Curated by Hillarey Jones, Paola Delfín | Effloresce, is a new iteration of the feminine ideal stemming from techniques the artist has consistently used throughout her career. In an effort to address the constant development of, not only our biological physiology, but also the link to the natural world around us, Delfín has created a series of new work that radiates with the metaphor of blossoming femininity anchored in the roots from which we came.

The focus is about having an identity and remembering that much like a plant..or a flower…we all have a growing process, and we are able to transform our lives in many ways. The reason I focus on women is because the world has a way of portraying them as being fragile, or having the idea that because you are beautiful you cannot be strong…what I try to convey is that a woman can be everything in one.” –Paola Delfín

 

Please join us for the unveiling of Paola’s new mural for San Antonio and an exhibition of her paintings in the S.M.A.R.T. projectspace on March 4, 2017

from 6-9 pm.

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 | 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.

Museum of Pocket Art @ Lone Star Arts District Second Saturday
Mar 11 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Museum of Pocket Art @ Lone Star Arts District Second Saturday | San Antonio | Texas | United States

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.

Gil Rocha-Rochelli

Bio

Rocha-Rochelli currently resides in the U.S.-Mexican border city of Laredo, TX. He has a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Texas in San Antonio (1999) and Masters of Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2006). Rocha-Rochelli is currently an art instructor at a fine arts school and is represented by Zoya-Tommy Contemporary Gallery in Houston, TX.

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!”

Paola Delfín | Effloresce @ S.M.A.R.T. projectspace
Mar 11 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Paola Delfín | Effloresce @ S.M.A.R.T. projectspace | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Driven by a passion to make her art available to everyone, Mexico City-based urban artist, Paola Delfín creates highly technical paintings depicting the complex relationship between the human body and other organic forms. In addition to gallery exhibitions, her public artworks are marveled at worldwide in countries such as Mexico, Germany, Ukraine, China, USA, Spain, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Brazil and Romania, to name a few.

Curated by Hillarey Jones, Paola Delfín | Effloresce, is a new iteration of the feminine ideal stemming from techniques the artist has consistently used throughout her career. In an effort to address the constant development of, not only our biological physiology, but also the link to the natural world around us, Delfín has created a series of new work that radiates with the metaphor of blossoming femininity anchored in the roots from which we came.

The focus is about having an identity and remembering that much like a plant..or a flower…we all have a growing process, and we are able to transform our lives in many ways. The reason I focus on women is because the world has a way of portraying them as being fragile, or having the idea that because you are beautiful you cannot be strong…what I try to convey is that a woman can be everything in one.” –Paola Delfín

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.

Jose Balli: Border & Boujie @ Agora
Mar 18 @ 7:00 PM
Jose Balli: Border & Boujie @ Agora  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Border & Boujie is a collection in which artist Jose Balli chooses to juxtapose high-class society and place them in the shoes of the poor & hungry. Balli intervenes society-type magazines with oil paint assaulting the lifestyle of the rich and famous, transforming the background into the urban landscape of the border.

Urban self-employment is the means for many people to create and establish an income for the families. Whether the job be selling chicle, chips, chile del monte, windshield-wiping or panhandling, people are proactively seeking to survive.

Dreams Are For Those Who Sleep @ Provenance Gallery
Mar 19 @ 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Dreams Are For Those Who Sleep @ Provenance Gallery  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

If you missed the Opening Reception on Second Saturday, here is another opportunity to view Dreams Are for Those Who Sleep, an exhibition featuring recent works on paper by San Antonio-based artist, Jose Fidel Sotelo.

This series of 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.

Tafsiri/Interpetations @ Bihl Haus Arts | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Tafsiri (Interpretations)” Highlights Kenya’s history with a modern perspective
in Works by Naomi Wanjiku Opening March 25 at Bihl Haus Arts

In her work “Gitiiro,” Kenyan-born artist Naomi Wanjiku has cut, dyed and linked pieces of sheet metal to assemble her wall hanging that mimics the swaying movement of a dancer.

Wanjiku explained that sheet metal is used mainly for roofing materials and walls and is particularly associated with Mabati women’s groups of the 1960s in Central Kenya. They organized to improve their communities by upgrading the roofs of their homes using sheet metal.

“I observed the success of their efforts, the harvesting of water from the new roofs, and the consequent ageing of the material itself,” Wanjiku said. “I mirror these effects in my own artistic process that weathers the surfaces of the materials. I occasionally add dye to create color and more complex effects. The delicate transformations etched in metal by the effects of weathering, chance, and time emphasize an ethereal, transient beauty.”

Bihl Haus Arts will host an opening reception for “Tafsiri,” which means “interpretations” in the Kiswahili language of East Africa, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 25 at the arts center, 2803 Fredericksburg Road. The exhibition, which is in conjunction with Women’s History Month, Contemporary Art Month and Poetry Month SA, runs through May 5. Wanjiku will give a gallery talk at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 1 at Bihl Haus.

At first glance, “Gitiiro” resembles a large, multi-colored, Spanish folding hand fan, or even small propeller blades swirling in circular motion. But, after a while, one begins to see the shape of a woman twirling round and round. The inspiration for the work comes from the artist’s pride in the traditional Kikuyu women of Kenya.

“It is a woman only song-dance that facilitated mentorship of courtship, sexuality and family life, for younger women, by older women,” Wanjiku said. “The mentorship would facilitate the gradual transition of these women from youth, to adulthood, and into respected members of their communities. This was a time for women to bond, to inspire and empower each other, in the absence of the male figure. It was their dance, their space, their time.”

The artist studied design at the University of Nairobi, where she explored the dynamics of fiber arts. During her graduate studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, she merged the old fiber arts and imagery of Africa with contemporary techniques. “There is no doubt that my American experience interacts with my Kenyan heritage and influences my art,” she said.

In response to “Tafsiri (Interpretations),” which touches on environmental issues, Bihl Haus presents Stone In Stream/Roca en el Rio, reading by environmental writers, artists and activists Mobi Warren, Kamala Platt, Janice Campbell, Rebecca Burroughs, Toni Falls, Jim LaVilla-Havelin y mas, on Thursday April 27, 2017 at 7:00 PM

(non)Commercial:Share Alike, is meant to reflect the ideas and subject matter broached by each of the 7 artists. Curator mark anthony martinez has selected a roster of artists, who employ conceptual practices within their works, straddling the line between fine art and commercial but who, more importantly are unapologetically rooted in identity. Most artists inevitability make work for sale, however, it is this particular selection of artists where the line between the commercial and concept becomes blurred.

More to the point, the phrase “noncommercial: share alike” is directly lifted from the ethos of the Creative Commons, wherein “If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original,” and alludes to the noncommercial ideas, typically associated with conceptual practices. Ideas that are constantly being remixed for every new generation.

In the context of the exhibit, the “material” is in fact, the world in which we live — remixed, in order to shift perspectives on assumption or highlight opportunities to unlearn oppressive modes of being. This ethos applied to the ideas these artists tackle, serve as the lens in which to view the works on display. In this exhibition the works become strategies to subvert oppression, declarations of personhood and challenge puritanical assumptions placed upon each of our bodies. Transgressive artistic liberties that disrupt normative stances towards Race, Gender and Sexuality are ultimately what is displayed in this exhibition with the hope to, not only get a viewer to reevaluate their relation to injustice but, ultimately to SHARE ALIKE the values of an intersectional and equitable future.

Mar 31 @ 6:00 PM – Apr 1 @ 12:00 PM
FL!GHT CAMP Fundraiser  at Hotwells! @ Hotwells  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

In the past 16 years, FL!GHT has never asked for money or had a (fun)draiser. Often times running (and paying for) the gallery is a labor of love shared between Ed Saavedra, myself and our myriad of friends and supporters ( Anthony, Josh, Robbie, Andy, Rigo.. there’s so many of you who make it work time and time again) .. I have often struggled with .. “is it worth it ?” and I’m quickly reminded that it is when I see new and old faces enjoying our exhibits and hear compliments on what we choose to show. Unfortunately not everyone can afford to be an art collector, and we recognize and understand the value of just SHOWING good work in our community more than selling it. I’ve long wanted to have a FLIGHT Camp Out Fun-Raiser at The site of the old Hotwells Hotel in San Antonio and this Contemporary Art Month we have our chance … Mar 31 through April 1 (and unofficially the 2nd).

Send FL!GHT a private message (through facebook) to register/reserve your campsite number now (there’s a limited amount, first come, first serve and some of the locations are quite swell.

Your $125 donation / ticket comes with :

Campsite reservation for one tentsite and two people
Free music and beer all night / live music / performance/ etc
FOOOD FOOD FOOD – chef & garden inspired Dinner, chef inspired midnite snacks, special breakfast by Robbie Nowlin & myself.
A !secret! midnite ghost tour of the ruins.
Morning Rock & fossil Hunting Expedition on the SA river banks.
Morning after Yoga..
More surprises to come !!

Additional $40 individual tickets are available if your camp holds more than two people. Groups who want to camp together on one or two adjacent sites just need to coordinate with me. Poor artists who can’t afford any of this and really want to come and donate their time as volunteers or performers .. we need you as well, just send me a message!!!

Let’s do this! Thank you for 16 years San Antonio !!

CAM PERENNIAL REFLECTIONS ON LANDSCAPE AND MEMORY

Through – Apr 30, 2017
Russell Hill Rogers Galleries I & II | Santikos Building
Free and open to the public

Each March serves as a celebration of contemporary art in San Antonio and, as a part of this celebration, the Contemporary Art Month organization (CAM) invites an established curator from outside of San Antonio each year to give a fresh perspective on the local art scene through copious studio visits and a resulting curated exhibition. This year, the Southwest School of Art is pleased to partner with CAM to present: 2017 CAM Perennial: Reflections on Landscape and Memory, curated by Chris Ingalls (Miami).

Selected artists for the Perennial Exhibition are:

David Alcantar

Julia Barbosa Landois

Esteban Delgado

Ana Fernandez

Sarah Fox

Nicole Geary

Joe Harjo

Jennifer Ling Datchuk

Karen Mahaffy

Michele Monseau

Kallie Pfeiffer

Ryan Takaba

Alejandro Augustine Padilla

Saint Lorraine

Guillermina Zabala

“Reflections on Landscape and Memory” is an exhibition, curated by Chris Ingalls, for which the artwork was selected based upon the following abstract ideas, as expressed by Simon Schama, Ken Taylor and Margaret Drabble:

“Before it can ever be a repose for the senses, landscape is a work of the mind. Its scenery is built up as much from strata of memory as from layers of rock.” Simon Schama

“We see and make landscapes as a result of our shared system of beliefs and ideologies. In this way landscape is a cultural construct, a mirror of our memories and myths encoded with meanings which can be read and interpreted.” Ken Taylor

“One of our deepest needs is for a sense of identity and belonging and a common denominator in this is human attachment to landscape and how we find identity in landscape and place. Landscape therefore is not simply what we see, but a way of seeing: we see it with our eye but interpret it with our mind and ascribe values to landscape for intangible – spiritual – reasons.” Ken Taylor

“The past lives on in art and memory, but it is not static: it shifts and changes as the present throws its shadow backwards. The landscape also changes, but far more slowly; it is a living link between what we were and what we have become. This is one of the reasons why we feel such a profound and apparently disproportionate anguish when a loved landscape is altered out of recognition; we lose not only a place, but ourselves, a continuity between the shifting phases of our life” Margaret Drabble

Show Title: Layered Landscapes

A mixed media interpretation of the Texas Hill Country using found materials, wax, and paint.

Whether I am working with encaustic, paint, collage, or a combination of all three, my work is always inspired by a life-long love of history. I use color, texture, and mark-making to create multi-layered pieces. I think about the passage of time as expressed in the layers of my work, with each choice covering over the past but still leaving it faintly visible.

Layered Landscapes was inspired by the terrain features, big sky, and lakes of the Texas Hill Country. I live in the city, but I love to spend the occasional weekend in the Hill County with my husband and kids. It’s a joy to see my son marvel at the rocky hills and get excited about using a fishing pole.  I have interpreted this landscape  that brings joy to my family using a variety of colorful mixed media materials. I collaged painted papers layered on top of vintage letters and postcards. I also painted vintage book covers using oil and cold wax medium layered with a palette knife. Finally, I made little “Lake Houses” using re-claimed wood, encaustic wax, and oils.
