Caitlin G. MCCollom | The Cloud of Unknowing @ Southwest School of Art | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Taken from an anonymously authored medieval text about mysticism, the exhibition’s title, The Cloud of Unknowing, refers to the mystical symbolism of blood and water. McCollom’s works are theoretical, conceptual, and focused on notions of existential absence, often portraying a balance between the artist’s interest in what she refers to as the “unknowable space of the mind and the mystery of the physical body.” McCollom’s work has been featured in national print and digital publications, including Glasstire, Persona Literary Journal, and Les Femme Folles, a catalog of women artists in the United States. McCollom’s work was most recently featured in New American Paintings and is held internationally in private collections in Texas, Iowa, New York, the United Kingdom, and Australia.

TEXAS DRAWS IV @ Southwest School of Art
Feb 11 – Apr 24 all-day

The Southwest School of Art’s biannual exhibition series, Texas Draws, opening February 11, features artists from around the state who extend the traditional definition of drawing and apply both traditional and non-traditional approaches to this time-honored discipline. The fourth in the series, Texas Draws IV takes the larger idea of drawing and explores it via several areas of consideration: materiality/medium; scale; documentation/environment; abstraction; and dimensional form. Through the range of ideas represented in the exhibition, it is clear to see that Texas artists working within the scope of drawing as a final means of expression are deep within the conversation of line and mark making in contemporary art.

The artists who have been invited to participate in Texas Draws IV are:

Fernando Andrade (San Antonio), Michael Bise (Houston), Kent Dorn (Houston), Adrian Esparza (El Paso), Mack Gingles (Waco), Hollis Hammonds (Austin), Timothy Harding (Fort Worth), Martha Hughes (Marfa), Robert Jackson Harrington (Austin), Soomin Jung (San Antonio), Kathleen McShane (Fayetteville), Benjamin McVey (San Antonio), Lee Michael Peterson (San Antonio), Rusty Scruby (Dallas), Randy Twaddle (Houston), Terri Thornton (Fort Worth), David Willburn (Dallas), Hsiu Ching Yu (Commerce).

9th Annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour Feb. 20-21
Features More Than 80 Artists at 50 Locations in the Biggest Neighborhood Art Tour in the Alamo City

Artist Kathleen Trenchard, who has lived in the Woodlawn Lake community for five years, has seen her neighborhood slowly evolve, which she partly attributes to the annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour that offers great exposure to the area, as well as the surrounding neighborhoods.

Visitors can discover for themselves what makes the communities along Fredericksburg Road charming and quaint. “People come to the neighborhoods and once they visit the homes and studios, this area gets a good reputation as a nice place to live,” she said.

Trenchard is one of more than 80 artists who will display their works during the 9th annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, and noon to 5 pm Sunday, Feb. 21 in San Antonio’s historic Deco District.

“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.

“It’s the only time of the year these art studios are open in such large numbers in one weekend,” said Kellen McIntyre, executive director of Bihl Haus Arts, which organizes the annual event. “You’ll get to see how artists live and work, and purchase or commission work directly from the artists.”

A full-color catalog in both hardcopy and online versions consisting of a map and information on participating artists and their work is available for $10. For more information, visit www.OnandOffFred.org or call Bihl Haus Arts at (210) 383-9723.

Pop-Up Exhibition for artist Emily Fleisher at new, SA Gallery – Polyglot @ Polyglot Gallery
Feb 20 @ 2:00 PM – Mar 30 @ 4:00 PM
Pop-Up Exhibition for artist Emily Fleisher at new, SA Gallery - Polyglot @ Polyglot Gallery | San Antonio | Texas | United States

San Antonio-based artist Emily Fleisher literally finds beauty in sliced bread or the semi burnt parchment paper that is extracted from underneath her loaf of bread after removing it from the oven. She is reminded of the real constellations in the sky when she opens a box of pasta stars to make dinner and she contemplates the once green acres that lay where her suburban home resides amongst a subdivision of San Antonio where all of the street are still named “Timber” almost in memoriam of the felling that took place.

Adult, modern life unfolds for most all in a confined, domestic context. Fleisher is just as much a participant as any, however, her retention of her childlike sensibilities to the wonderment that lies beneath the surface of this confinement allows her to embrace this existence and interpret it via her artwork with a greater and more expansive world definition that reaches as far as our imaginations will allow.

It is with great pleasure that Polyglot Gallery, a new pop-up gallery project based out of a house in the Alta Vista neighborhood in San Antonio, announces its collaboration with Emily Fleisher during the On & Off Fredricksburg studio tours February 20 – 21. Come to the domestic setting to contemplate the greater world that simultaneously resides in and transcends domesticity and the modern life. An opening reception for her exhibition, Home Goods, is scheduled for Saturday, February 20 from 2 to 4 PM where the artist will discuss her process and a special musical performance by local, acoustic rapper Chris Conde will accompany the exhibition.

Post February 21, visits to the show are by appointment only.

The Invincible Czars Debut Original Score for Nosferatu @ URBAN-15 Studio
Feb 20 @ 9:00 PM – 11:00 PM
The Invincible Czars Debut Original Score for Nosferatu @ URBAN-15 Studio | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Inspired by numerous requests from fans over the years, Austin’s Invincible Czars will debut their new score for the 1922 German silent film Nosferatu (dir. F.W. Murnau) at URBAN-15 on Saturday, February 20th.

Nosferatu marks the 7th effort for a band that’s increasingly becoming known for its well-crafted original silent film scores. Last year, The Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Fe, known for hosting acclaimed silent film accompanists from around the nation, called the Czars’ soundtrack for the 1929 Lillian Gish silent classic The Wind—also performed at URBAN-15 in 2014—”as good as any we’ve seen.”

The band always incorporates classical music into their scores, and this time they’ve chosen Bela Bartok’s Roumanian Folk Dances in a nod to the fictional Count Orlock’s home turf, utilizing violin, glockenspiel, organ, flute, bass clarinet, vocals, music box, loops, electric guitar, bass, singing bowl, tambourine and other hand percussion–a sight to behold when performed live by only four players. The highlight of their arrangements is a haunting version of Roumanian Dance IV, which features an otherworldly vocal performance by the band’s wind mistress Leila Henley.

Nosferatu is one of the most revered films in the history of cinema. As the world’s first vampire movie, it is regarded as the first important horror film–but it was almost erased from the history books when the estate of Bram Stoker sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement and most of the prints of the movie were destroyed. Several survived, and this performance will feature the most completely restored version that exists.

As an homage to the film, a Nosferatu-inspired costume contest will precede the Czars’s performance at 8:30pm. Come dressed as your favorite vampire for a chance to win a door prize! Those interested should arrive at URBAN-15 at 8pm to register.

This event is part of URBAN-15’s Sonic Provocations series, which provides a setting for sound artists to showcase original material, taking it out of the laboratory and into the ears of the public. Tickets are $10 at the door or presale at http://urban-15.ticketleap.com/sonic-provocations/ .

On February 27th, Matt Rebholz, creator of the graphic novel ‘The Astronomer’ will lead a 1-day Dream Comic Workshop in correlation with our upcoming exhibition, TEXAS DRAWS IV. In this workshop you will learn about the process of converting a loosely organized narrative into an effective and personal piece of sequential art.

Matt’s works on paper explore mythologies, technologies and the intersections between science fact and science fiction. His intricate intaglio etchings, drawings and collage are influenced by technical illustration, comic books, art historical figures such as Albrecht Durer and the films of Stanley Kubrick.

31 Days of Contemporary Conceptual Camera Confabulation @ instagram.com/seanfitzgibbons/
Mar 1 – Mar 31 all-day

This performance involves the creation of one perpetual yet intangible artwork every day of Contemporary Art Month, using the social media app Instagram as a contemporary art platform/venue. The images, once created, live in a limbo where they can be experienced by everyone, yet don’t exist in a physical sense.
This method of production explicitly restricts and challenges the concepts of the artist’s studio and more importantly the brick and mortar art gallery.

Mar 1 @ 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Artist Talk with Adrian Esparza @ Southwest School of Art - RHR Lecture Hall | Victoria | Texas | United States

Join Texas Draws IV artist, Adrian Esparza, in a conversation about his work. Through the deconstructing and repurposing of readymade textiles from his native region into large-scale “drawings,” Esparza asks the viewer to reconsider the source material. These handmade geometric structures are meant as commentary about the US/Mexico border, offering a new way to consider the political divides and the border issues of the area in which the artist lives.

Sponsored in partnership with Trinity University and a grant from Latino Americans: 500 Years of History, a public programming initiative produced by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Associaition (ALA) as part of an NEH inititative, The Common Good: The Humanities in the Public Square.

Adrian Esparza received his MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 1998. He has had solo exhibitions at a variety of exhibition venues, including the Cue Art Foundation (New York), Taubert Contemporary (Berlin), and the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. Esparza was an Artpace resident in 2009. His work has been included in many group exhibitions, including Phantom Sightings: Art after the Chicano Movement, Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Unknitting: Challenging Textile Traditions, Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at the University of Texas at El Paso; and New American Talent: The Twenty-First Exhibition.

Spring Exhibitions: Justin Boyd @ Blue Star Contemporay
Mar 3 – May 8 all-day
Spring Exhibitions: Justin Boyd @ Blue Star Contemporay  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Boyd’s new installation at Blue Star is inspired by his time spent in Germany in Summer 2014. Selected as one of the 2014-2015 Blue Star Contemporary Berlin Residents, Boyd spent his days recording the city of Berlin through its sounds. So much of his time was dedicated to listening, whether it was to the daily sounds of bikes, cars, trains, conversations, or the Berlin Philharmonic, improvisational music, and techno, Boyd gained a unique knowledge of the city that others may not have.

On this process Boyd states, “My ears have given me an intimate sense of what actually constitutes Berlin. What frequencies are present, which are gone? What sounds are here that are not other places, I know now that if played a recording of a street scene from Berlin, I would recognize it’s DNA very quickly. The city is loud, lots of bicycles, trains, broken bottles, many languages, protests, police sirens and a steady 4/4 beat most places you go.”

Boyd’s multimedia, sculptural installation is the distillation and processing of his field recordings and is experienced as object, sound, and environment, creating a new sort landscape for visitors to experience in Blue Star’s interior and exterior spaces.

Spring Exhibtions: Do It & Do It (Archive) @ Blue Star Contemporary
Mar 3 – May 8 all-day
Spring Exhibtions: Do It & Do It (Archive) @ Blue Star Contemporary  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

What would happen if an exhibition never stopped? Since it began in 1993, with this question being asked by Hans Ulrich Obrist and artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier, do it has become the longest-running and most far-reaching exhibition to ever to have happened – constantly evolving and generating evermore relevant new versions of itself. Since ICI’s launch last year to mark the exhibition’s 20th anniversary, do it has toured to venues from New York to Manchester, Budapest to Salt Lake City, and Kosovo to Moscow.

do it began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between Obrist, Boltanski and Lavier who were curious to see what would happen if they started an exhibition that would never need to stop. To test the idea, Obrist invited 12 artists to propose artworks based on written “scores” or instructions that can be openly interpreted every time they were presented. The instructions were then translated into 9 different languages and circulated internationally as a book. In the 20 years since Obrist, Boltanski and Lavier mused over the potential of “scores,” or written instructions by artists, do it created exhibition formats that could be more flexible and open-ended. Each time it was presented, do it was re-interpreted. Many new versions of the exhibition were formed, including do it (museum), do it (home), do it (TV), do it (seminar), and an online do it in collaboration with e-flux, among others.

The origin and transformation of do it reflects the necessity of exploring collaboration and shared authorship in a constantly evolving art world. The project’s impetus is rooted in the extraordinary effects of globalization on curating and artistic practice in the 1990s, a time that witnessed an unprecedented expansion of the geographies of contemporary art. Twenty years later, do it has taken place in 60+ venues worldwide and includes nearly 400 artists from across the globe, giving new meaning to the concept of an exhibition in progress, while offering infinite creative possibilities for participating audiences everywhere.

Adrian Piper asks audiences to hum a tune in order to enter a room. Ben Kinmont wants us to “invite a stranger into [our] home for breakfast.” Alexandre Singh teaches us how to turn wine into soda. Yoko Ono encourages us to keep wishing. And Mircea Cantor demands that we “burn this book. ASAP,” but John Armleder says to do “None of the above.”

DO IT at BLUE STAR CONTEMPORARY
For our selection from the DO IT compendium we have gathered instructions into a few grouping, some that will exist already completed in the gallery space and some for visitors to do. The Person You Are, The Person You Could Be centers on the theme of self reflection and alterations. Some instructions are existential and some are more direct changes and interventions to the physical self. The Calculated Image grouping features instructions that or more precise in nature, resulting in an image or object that is very directed by the instructions with a more specified outcome. Performance Party is a selection of instruction visitors will experience as one offs and during the opening and public programs. Lastly, visitors will be invited to execute a set of instructions at our upcoming Family Saturday, happening April 9, 2016.

Spring Exhibtions: Works Progress @ Blue Star Comtemporary
Mar 3 – May 8 all-day
Spring Exhibtions: Works Progress @ Blue Star Comtemporary  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Blue Star is pleased to feature artist duo Works Progress as one of three spring exhibitions. In the creation of a site specific installation the artists take a hydrosocial approach to the nature of water and provide an alternative: Society and water make each other, and this process of co-creation necessarily changes both. The exhibtion is a temporary space to experience and inhabit the hydrosocial landscape of San Antonio and South Texas, through installations and a social environment activated by water experts, environmental advocates, social justice activists, and other people who drink water and care about the many issues it touches. Their Anthropocene epoch posits a new relationship with nature, both as a concept, and as a set of actual relationships. Water, for example, is central to our future, though we’ve long kept it separate from society, both literally and conceptually. Additionally the artists have developed an installation component reflecting on the history of Blue Star’s physical building in relation to the installation concepts.

Plasticity @ Hello Studio
Mar 4 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Plasticity @ Hello Studio | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Hello Studio’s 5th anniversary will launch a new location and concept. The gallery, which has hosted over 50 emerging artists from around Texas under the direction of founder Amada Miller, will add a studio residency to its existing exhibition program. March 4th, the First Friday of Contemporary Art Month, marks the opening of the newly renovated 1500 sq ft gallery located at the Upstairs Studios at Blue Star. Additionally, the new space houses three artist studios–one designated for the new two-month residency and the others for Hello Studio co-directors Amada Miller and Taylor Bates.

Hello Studio is excited and honored to host T. Hopkins’ new body of work entitled, Plasticity. Hopkins began his residency in December of 2015, as Hello Studio’s first resident artist. His new body of work explores the idea of adaptability in several ways; environmental, material, and theoretical. As a painter Hopkins explores plasticity using unorthodox and unassuming materials to create his paintings, including plastic bags, depressurized aerosol cans, and other debris. Hopkins considers these discarded objects as raw canvas for creating paintings.

Hello Studio is an independent artist-run gallery and art space that hosts exhibitions showcasing emerging visual artists in and around Texas. It is directed by Amada Miller and Taylor Bates.

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.

ArtFriday. SexFriday. @ Sexology Institute
Mar 4 @ 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM
ArtFriday. SexFriday. @ Sexology Institute | San Antonio | Texas | United States

The Sexology Institute and Boutique will feature Austin artist, Marcy Ann Villafaña at Southtown’s First Friday on March 4, 2016.

Working in a variety of mediums, including charcoal, conté, and paper, Villafaña’s erotic art explores a love for drawing, while adding an enhanced quality of paper art, driving an exploration into the three-dimensional area.
“My work is mostly of the feminine form. I see the beauty in the light and dark spaces of the figure and enjoy expressing it through color and or texture.”

Inspired by the works of Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Manet, Salvador Dali, Mucha, and Patrick Nagel, Villafaña derived her own style through a love of cutting paper. “This particular form of art is an expression of my need to control my environment,” said Villafaña. “Unlike other artists who can paint and draw (which I do as well), I find my satisfaction in the precision of cutting the papers with a plain old Exacto knife and their textures. Nothing new… nothing fancy. No templates… no machines. Not the new cutting techniques or gadgets…no curved blades, just my hands, my eyes, and a straight blade. I developed this style when I teenager as a result of my near-sightedness.”

Marcy Ann Villafaña was born in Southern, California in 1968. She currently resides north of Austin, Texas in Cedar Park. She has been exhibiting and selling her art since the late 80s, and has taken time in between to raise a family and grow a thriving career in graphic and web design (ModCat Design) for the past 27 years.

Villafaña will be present at the institute on the opening night of the exhibit on Friday, March 4, 2016 from 8-10 pm to meet patrons and present her work.

Stephanie Kantor, Mock Pavilion

March 5 – 31, 2016

Sala Diaz, 517 Stieren St, San Antonio, TX 78210

Opening Reception: Saturday March 5th, 6-10PM

Public Hours: Thus – Sat, 2pm – 7pm & by appointment

For Contemporary Art Month’s annual exchange (CAMx), Black Cube, a Denver-based nomadic contemporary art museum, is partnering with Sala Diaz, a San Antonio-based experimental nonprofit, to produce Mock Pavilion, a site-specific ceramic installation by Black Cube artist fellow Stephanie Kantor. Mock Pavilion explores points of cultural transition through the interpretation of historic design motifs from Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Inspired by the repurposed domestic space of Sala Diaz, Mock Pavilion oscillates between referencing the interior of bourgeois homes, museum period rooms and cultural pavilions as places of visual and experienced pleasure. Four rooms, loosely grouped by historical period, feature over 1,600 hand-painted tiles and 36 ceramic vessels, tapestries and custom wallpapers. One room draws inspiration from ogival textile patterns, a floral design extremely popular during the 14th century that traveled the trade routes between Europe, the Middle East and Asia, and was translated differently by each culture it reached. Kantor’s vivid ceramic works defy categorization as painting, sculpture or pottery, and the artist’s interpretation of traditional patterns creates a space of cultural amalgamation, hybridization and boundary blurring. Mock Pavilion, questions cultural identity as defined by geopolitical boundaries to highlight the shifting nature of visual culture and the fluidity of the world around us.

Stephanie Kantor (b. 1985, Pittsburgh, PA, USA) living/working in Denver, CO received her MFA in Ceramics from University of Colorado Boulder (2015) and BFA from Penn State University (2009). Kantor’s work explores the paradoxical aspects of culture, both expansive and local. She samples at will, an arbitrary collection of misinterpretations, gentrifying foreign cultures. She utilizes ornamentation and decoration to create a facade where her large-scale ceramic objects speak to multiplicity, cultural diversity and artifice. Kantor has exhibited nationally, including such venues as Patterson Gallery (University Park, PA), Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (Boulder, CO), the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art (Overland Park, KS), Paragraph Gallery (Kansas City, MO) and Belger Crane Yard Studios (Kansas City, MO), among others.

Primarily a sculptor in clay and wood, Chadbourne works in a range of materials and in both two- and three-dimensional formats. Over the years he has created a complex body of work unified by a primal iconography and artifact-like quality emerging from a very personal and consistent formal, aesthetic and philosophical sense. He has lived in San Antonio, Texas since 1979.

That Thing On The Side Of The Road
Honoring the overlooked; the cast-off; the abandoned; the peripheral. If the title sounds like it could be the name of a B-Horror film, you’re hearing it the way I do. Not going to bother you with pretentious words like hierarchy, transgressive, etc., but those concerns are there, they just won’t fit in my pickup truck. That’s really all there is to it. Why say more? -Hills Snyder, Curator

Three The Hard Way | Rafael Fernando Gutierrez Jr - What It Means @ Clamp Light Studios & Gallery  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Three The Hard Way (One Month – Three Solo Pop-Ups, curated by Raul Gonzalez)
Rafael Fernando Gutierrez Jr. will start the month off with “What It Means,” an exhibition of new paintings, drawings, and a performance that questions what it means to be a military veteran, civilian, and artist.

Artist Statement:
I enjoy occupying space with-in spaces. For these paintings and performance I have constructed a temporary territory in which I can explore techniques of training, drill and ceremony. These works presents the tension between indoctrination and individuality. My work produces tangible questions of what it means to be a military veteran, what it means to be a civilian and what it means to be an artist. From the resulting physical and mental stresses, I am able to develop a new dialogue between execution and concept. By using individual experiences, I can manifest my history into both original and interactive artwork. Through these engagements of body and medium, I bring my past into the present by physically evoking and forming new reflections of myself. My life as a military dependent, civilian, and as a veteran of the Air Force impacts the way I approach my artistic process. Through the works exhibited, posttraumatic intimate events manifest into the catalyst needed by the body and concept for emotional restoration.

Artist Bio:
Rafael F. Gutierrez Jr. is a painter and performance artist who recently graduated from The University of Texas at San Antonio with a BFA and Art History minor. He came into being and spent the early years of his life in the city of Augusta, Georgia. Rafael lived throughout America, Europe and Asia before returning to San Antonio, Texas following his enlistment in The United States Air Force as an Emergency Medical Technician. His work is concerned with exploring the vast landscape of memory and how this shapes individual operations within society. Rafael uses painting/drawing along side time-based mediums of sound, video and performance to regain entry into his past. By re-experiencing his own life he is able to ask questions again and again and produce numerous more questions. The aesthetics of the Dada movement, evident by its mockery of materialistic and nationalistic attitudes, influence Rafael’s creative process. Rafael Gutierrez is influenced by Artists such as Jean Micheal Basquiat, William Pope. L and Dred Scott who have and are currently reacting consequently to their own personal state of existence juxtaposed against the world they occupy. Rafael hopes to present himself as the medium in which experience can manifest itself into original, universal and personal art.

Part of the worldwide Crochet Coral Reef Project created by the Institute For Figuring. Since 2006, the Institute For Figuring has worked with communities around the world to create local ‘satellite’ reefs. Just as living reefs send out spawn—tiny seeds that settle in far-flung places and begin to grow into new reefs—so too the Crochet Coral Reef sends out ‘spawn.’ Satellite reefs have now been constructed in 30 cities and countries worldwide, including Chicago, New York, London, Latvia, Ireland, and Germany. The San Antonio Satellite Reef is the newest addition to this enchanted archipelago. Throughout 2015 and 2016, members of the San Antonio community gathered in workshops to make these forms. The corals they crocheted have been arranged into a unique topography.

Journey Into Civilizations Photo Journal by Patrice Villastrigo @ The Jackson Ranch in the Heart of San Antonio

> 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!”

I’ve found that the impetus for growth exists in the garishly comical and the pathetically hopeful. My works are created from the loved and left and charged by an abandonment of taste resulting in revelry. They are willful and often weep.

Victoria Jones at Parman Branch Library

Title: Methods & Madness
Artist’s Statement:
Methods & Madness is an exhibition of new works that explore a single subject matter through various mediums, materials, compositions, and processes. The repetitive use of tea set imagery throughout the series develops an investigative relationship with the objects while simultaneously fostering the obsession with its representation.

Title: Latitudes of Silence
Artist’s Statement:
Latitudes of Silence, is an exhibition of artist Andrei Renteria’s
lithographs investigating the lineage of political disappearances in
Latin American countries. The artist is interested in provoking the
audience to re-surface and humanize the histories of those who have disappeared due to their involvement in pacific social movements, armed movements, immigration, or organized crime.

Title: Frontiers
Artist’s Statement:

Frontiers is a body of work about the conventions of representation– specifically those of wild spaces – and how such mediated projections and ideas affect the way that we perceive, interact and place ourselves in nature. It is set in Alaska, a place rife in mythological cache whose name alone has the power to evoke vast imaginative tableaus of Wilderness, Frontier, and American individualism.

This project grew out of a strong fascination as to why people are drawn to such places, and how the way in which people interact with them expresses some of the most elemental aspects of modern culture—our tendency to package, guide and contain experience, oftentimes reducing it to commodity.

Three The Hard Way | Eric Breish – Grim State @ Clamp Light Studios & Gallery
Mar 11 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Three The Hard Way | Eric Breish - Grim State @ Clamp Light Studios & Gallery | San Antonio | Texas | United States

For the 2nd installment of “Three The Hard Way”, Eric Breish will take over the gallery with his series “Grim State, a body of new abstract works that reflect his feelings toward the fragility of human life and suffering.

Artist Statement
This body of work illustrates the fragility of the world we are living in today. There is a feeling of desperation and tension that fills our screens daily. We watch as places like Syria burn to the ground and riots tear through our own streets because of race or religion. People somehow associate change with destruction as if burning down your own neighborhood or shooting up a music hall will bring the attention needed to eradicate racism or to unite the belief in one God.
As I worked through these paintings, I noticed that they had a feeling of chaos and destruction. The pieces contain layers that are built up and torn down depicting topographical views of war torn cities. These abstract forms are the result of my daily digestion of mass media and portray the grim state in which we find ourselves.

——

Clamp Light Artist Studios & Gallery and Freight Gallery will be exchanging their exhibition spaces for Contemporary Art Month! Multi-media artist Raul Gonzalez is serving as guest curator for an exhibition at Clamp Light. Instead of organizing a single CAM event, Gonzalez stepped onto the court looking for Three The Hard Way, three solo exhibitions by San Antonio based artists Rafael Fernando Gutierrez Jr, Eric Breish, and Alyssa Danna. Throughout the month of CAM the space will be taken over by each of these artists for exhibitions ranging in painting, sculpture, drawing, performance, and installation.
Three The Hard Way is a basketball term often used to describe a player scoring three points in a difficult fashion, usually from the three-point line. In this instance, the challenging part is coordinating three solo shows in one month. “Being that Contemporary Art Month is about highlighting San Antonio’s artists, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to find a way to showcase several artists’ work. So, I had to figure out a way to bring more than one exhibition into that environment in a short period of time.” – Raul Gonzalez
In addition to each solo show, artists will add smaller works to a “community wall” that will evolve as the shows interchange.

Cornelia White Swann: Fugitive Color II @ French & Michigan Gallery
Mar 12 @ 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Cornelia White Swann: Fugitive Color II @ French & Michigan Gallery | San Antonio | Texas | United States

French & Michigan Gallery presents Cornelia White Swann: Fugitive Color II, the second installment for the two-part exhibition featuring the artist’s recent exploration in hand-made natural pigments.

Swann’s first presentation, presented in spring 2015, highlights an intimate series of works on paper which reflects her experimentation with and search for the origins of color. Eliminating synthetic paint, the artist extracts pigments from herbs, flowers, fruits, vegetables, and other plants for compositions that evoke the pure and organic nature of their making.

Deriving its title from a term used for impermanent pigments, the exhibition signifies the vulnerable, changing state of natural color. The second presentation, set one year apart from the first, further emphasizes the artwork’s physical relation to time as Swann extends this base knowledge of living material into new forms.

Cornelia White Swann: Fugitive Color II opens March 12, and remains on view through April 30, 2016.

Exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue—release date to coincide with the second presentation in spring 2016. Designed and produced by French & Michigan, the publication includes essays by Curator Céleste Wackenhut, Curatorial Assistant Kathryn Zimmerhanzel, guest writer Liz Pearson, and statements from the artist.

Aligned, an exhibition by artist Andrei Renteria, is a series of works constructed out of discarded material and traditional media that revisit his experiences within the drug smuggling culture along the U.S.-Mexico border where he grew up.

By using discarded material, Renteria creates an enormous deposit of information of great value that revisits these experiences beyond the imprint, beyond the trace—a preservation of sensation—a documentation of habits and forms of behavior during that interval of time.

FLAX open studio @ FLAX studio

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.

Teen artists from the Southwest School of Art partner with spare parts to uncover the aesthetics of detritus and reexamine their relationship with the discarded. The resulting installation gives used cardboard a new life that honors its forest origins. Found in many cultures and religions, the Tree of Life symbolizes knowledge, sustenance, regeneration, and healing. Artists reclaimed materials often thought of as waste – used cardboard, plastic, paper and found objects – from their homes and communities to build the tree, challenging viewers to reimagine what they may consider unusable. This Tree of Life represents the hope for a healthier, more sustainable future.

Maybe it was all a dream, Jack McGilvray @ Haus Collective | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Maybe it was all a dream, Jack McGilvray

“I present the observer with a non-linear photographic narrative—one ungrounded, lost in space and time. These images are an invitation to step into a dream.
Can you recall a period in your life that no longer seems real, not just because of a temporal distance, but a chasm of trauma that your mind cannot cross, as if the former you entered and emerged a stranger? As time passes, that past seems out of reach. In contrast, the imagined and found feel like truths rising to the surface, the realest things in a dream-like present. You begin looking everywhere for clues.

This body of work is about the tide between pain and the sublime. Have you ever felt lost in the haze of another world and looked back at the world you left behind? Sometimes those worlds feel at opposite ends of a galaxy. At other times, the reconciliation of your pre and post-chasm self seems to rely only on finding the right clues.”

The Korean Diary of Jose Balli: Experiencias Fronterizas @ Agora
Mar 19 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
The Korean Diary of Jose Balli: Experiencias Fronterizas @ Agora  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Jose Gerardo Balli—Mexican-American artist from Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico/McAllen, TX

I started sketching in old books by happenstance. My attention has always been piqued by the many books I’ve seen reach their final resting place on some neglected bookshelf, Salvation Army or public library donation program. Seeing life still remaining in each one of those books, I decided to give them a second chance, repurposing them in my own way.

I commence my artistic process by examining the old books and manuscripts. I sketch my daily life—capturing characters, objects, scenic and urban landscapes in Texas and Northern Mexico. I render crude, vivid sketches on the pages of the books using oil pastels. The books become an extension of my thoughts, taking lives of their own—with my creations slowly covering the work of someone else. By morphing their content, juxtaposing the sketches with the typography and images on the pages into something new, the books regain the vitality they lost when they were relegated to the places in which I found them.

Once I feel a book is complete, I select a number of sketches to turn into oil paintings (or other large-scale pieces). Rendering the pieces into larger formats is my way of paying tribute to the moment. My sketches and paintings serve as a drawbridge between a time and place in my personal experience.

The Korean Diary of Jose Balli; Experiencias Fronterizas ( A Border Experience)

The border is a unique place with experiences and characters that are only found in the region. This collection includes my personal vision of the border, the collection was developed as a series of sketches made in the “Korean Dairy”. The “Korean Diary” was a book that consisted of a group of economic essays which discussed east asian economic relations ,written in Korean. I intervened the book utilizing it as my sketch book, the book took a life of its own once the book was complete I then selected my favorite peaces to turn into oil paintings, this is how the collection came to be. The value of daily life in the frontier is very easy to ignore always moving always changing, at different rates at different times, on both sides of the Rio Bravo. This collection includes my personal vision of the border, where I endeavor to capture everyday moments, experiences and characters that are ignored or forgotten with the passage of time.The collection pays tribute to all of them, sharing my vision of the border and the great love I have for it.

Three The Hard Way | Alyssa Danna – Love After Love @ Clamp Light Studios & Gallery

Three The Hard Way | Alyssa Danna - Love After Love @ Clamp Light Studios & Gallery  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Alyssa Danna will transform the space with “Love After Love,” a series of assemblage sculptures that relish in the tasteless decorative revival of things loved and left.

Artist Statement
My work relishes in the tasteless decorative revival of things love and left. The results are a growth of the object and a mounting humor laden empathy at its predicament.

Alyssa Danna is a local San Antonio artist that holds a Bachelors of Fine Art emphasizing Painting from Lamar University in Beaumont Texas, her hometown, and a Masters of Fine Art emphasizing Sculpture from UTSA. She is the proud keeper of three fur babies, three lizard friends, and untold plant life. She hopes you enjoy the show.

Clamp Light Artist Studios & Gallery and Freight Gallery will be exchanging their exhibition spaces for Contemporary Art Month! Multi-media artist Raul Gonzalez is serving as guest curator for an exhibition at Clamp Light. Instead of organizing a single CAM event, Gonzalez stepped onto the court looking for Three The Hard Way, three solo exhibitions by San Antonio based artists Rafael Fernando Gutierrez Jr, Eric Breish, and Alyssa Danna. Throughout the month of CAM the space will be taken over by each of these artists for exhibitions ranging in painting, sculpture, drawing, performance, and installation.

Three The Hard Way is a basketball term often used to describe a player scoring three points in a difficult fashion, usually from the three-point line. In this instance, the challenging part is coordinating three solo shows in one month. “Being that Contemporary Art Month is about highlighting San Antonio’s artists, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to find a way to showcase several artists’ work. So, I had to figure out a way to bring more than one exhibition into that environment in a short period of time.” – Raul Gonzalez

In addition to each solo show, artists will add smaller works to a “community wall” that will evolve as the shows interchange.
Back patio musical entertainment will be provided by guest curator Raul Gonzalez, performing as “Mr. Playlist”

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.

That Thing On The Side Of The Road
Honoring the overlooked; the cast-off; the abandoned; the peripheral. If the title sounds like it could be the name of a B-Horror film, you’re hearing it the way I do. Not going to bother you with pretentious words like hierarchy, transgressive, etc., but those concerns are there, they just won’t fit in my pickup truck. That’s really all there is to it. Why say more? -Hills Snyder, Curator
