Body and Mind (work in progress) @ Magical Realism Studio
Mar 4 @ 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Body and Mind (work in progress) @ Magical Realism Studio | San Antonio | Texas | United States

This new series is the product of my ongoing fascination with human body and consciousness.
How we look at our own bodies critically and how the society at large makes us feel inadequate about how we look, are the driving force for this series.

The participants are invited to make up their own poses and are asked to make an oral statement on how they feel about their own bodies and their thoughts on society’s perception of human bodies. Excerpts from these statements are included as text on the images of each participant.

My intention is to photograph as diverse a group as possible, all ages, genders, shapes and sizes. My intention in this series is to show that all bodies have beauty regardless of shapes and sizes, gender and age.

Audrya Flores | Devil's Trumpet @ Provenance Gallery  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Provenance Gallery is pleased to present Devil’s Trumpet, new work by Audrya Flores.

“This series of assemblage work exposes my artistic process. I create tactile representations of my dream symbols as a way to decode their meanings and resolve the conflicts they represent.
Datura, also known as Devil’s Trumpet is a highly toxic night-blooming flower that, if ingested, causes a state of delirium. Myths exist in multiple cultures in which the personified Datura plant aids people through dreams and visions.”

Exhibition will be on view until April 2nd, by appointment.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Audrya Flores is a Tejana artist, educator, and mother living in San Antonio, Texas. Her work is a means for intrapersonal exploration and is influenced by dreams, visions, the occult, and her roots in the border town of Brownsville, Texas. Flores repurposes discarded materials and found objects for her collage and assemblage work.

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

FLAX open studio @ FLAX studio
Mar 12 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
FLAX open studio @ FLAX studio | San Antonio | Texas | United States

San Antonio-based artists Katy Silva and Andrei Renteria have annouced the opening of their new art studio: Flax Studio!

Silva, a Trinity University graduate, and current Marketing and Development Manager at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, partnered with painter Renteria, a UTSA MFA graduate, Artist Foundation grant recipient, and Artist Lab resident, to open the space and encourage the development of emerging artists in San Antonio and South Texas.

Flax was chosen as the name, as flax is a key material in oil paint and canvas, which suited the two painters perfectly.

“Andrei and I have seen the incredible growth of San Antonio’s art scene,” said Silva. “Flax was born out of our passion for painting and for the future success of the creative community. Visitors to the studio are in for something truly unique.”

About Flax Studio
Located at 1906 S. Flores St., Flax Studio is an artist run studio and gallery space in the Lone Star Arts District in San Antonio.

Check us out at our monthly Second Saturday Artwalk!

R Space Open Studio Tour Presents San Antonio based artist Ali Wiesse @ R Space Gallery
Mar 20 @ 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM
R Space Open Studio Tour Presents San Antonio based artist Ali Wiesse @ R Space Gallery  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Ali Wiesse is a San Antonio based artist who creates 2 and 3-dimensional artworks inspired by nature. Wiesse is currently working toward her BFA at the Southwest School of Art, expected to graduate in 2018 with an emphasis in painting and printmaking.

Ali Wiesse’s fascination with the natural world is her primary motivation as an artist. Drawing inspiration from ordinary objects, Ali is in search of beauty and purpose in the everyday. Her creative process involves intuitive explorations of physical boundaries between humans and nature. Drawings, paintings, and sculptures evolve through layers of precise, organic structures. Consciously or not, her work is evocative of living organisms and the human body, which suggests a symbiotic boundary between what is universal and what is individual.

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.
