Momo & Pompa’s free public engaging exhibition will pay tribute to 300+ years of San Antonio’s rich heritage with an interactive art experience designed for “Children of ALL ages”! The artists’ mission is to inspire and promote our heritage through their whimsical inquisitive colorful mixed media contemporary art with paintings, photography, sculptures, coloring books and games (including an exhibit scavenger hunt). Momo’s style is free flowing interwoven “puzzle-like” animals created in the moment and Pompa’s style includes massive mixed media colorful light sculptures and paintings. Their collaboration is full of surprises. The exhibit includes a free-standing 15 foot double-sided mural “From Dawn to Dusk: South Texas Habitat and Mexican Free-Tailed Bats” now owned and part of the education program of Bat Conservation International and Bracken Cave and on display on the 6th floor of the Central Library in the Texana and Genealogy Department. The main gallery exhibits highlight the heritage of our beautiful city from flora and fauna, south Texas rock art, the San Antonio mission trail, to landmarks and urban San Antonio. In addition the artists are launching a new coloring book highlighting San Antonio’s downtown attractions with animals and our local legend characters. Several library events will be in the gallery throughout the month of March. Be sure to check the SAPL events calendar for details.

Unheimlich @ Anthem gallery
Mar 1 @ 6:00 PM – Mar 2 @ 9:00 PM
Unheimlich @ Anthem gallery | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Unheimlich
Collaborative and solo works by Elizabeth McDonald Schwaiger and Seth Orion Schwaiger

Anthem gallery, Suite 115, Blue Star Arts Complex
First Thursday and First Friday

About the exhibition:

At the crux of both artists’ practices are dynamics of power, both subtle and overt. Working collaboratively, the subject becomes much more specific — the dynamics of power is they play out in the home, or rather, the home’s role in building personal power and deflecting external pressures. “Unheimlich” is a distortion and reimagining of you i i i everything else, the couple’s first entirely collaborative exhibition. Here the Austin bungalow-based De Stijl Gallery was transformed back into a residence-like space complete with sculpture/dining table installation/bedroom, painted digital fireplace, and artist chandelier. In Unhemlich, the stricture of the theme is loosened, and the more uneasy qualities native to the artists individual practices seep in. Unheimlich, the German word for uncanny, would be literally translated as un-home-like. This relation between the home and the taboo, the normal and the unspeakable, infuses the works within the exhibition — a fever dream domicile where symbolism is made flesh and invisible dynamics of power take palpable shape.

Jeremiah Teutsch: Two Heads Are Better Than One @ Hello Studio
Mar 1 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Jeremiah Teutsch: Two Heads Are Better Than One @ Hello Studio | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Two Heads Are Better Than One is an exhibition of large-scale sculptures inspired by traditional funeral death masks. A death mask is a wax or plaster cast made of a person’s face following their death, often by taking a cast or impression directly from the corpse. For this exhibition, Teutsch sculpts the heads in clay, makes a mold from the sculpture out of plaster, and casts the heads in paper mache before painting them. “The idea of this show came about after my father passed away. I started drawing enormous Big Giant Heads sinking into the ground, as mountainous monuments of grief. These are scaled-down monuments of grief. They’re similar in form and function to death masks. The day before my father died, he asked me to make a death mask of him. He was cremated before I got to see him. So, now I’m making these big giant heads as recompense for not being able to make his.”

Jeremiah Teutsch was born in Lubbock, Texas in 1982. He graduated with a BFA in painting and drawing from the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in Denver, Colorado. He now lives and works in San Antonio. He is involved in many different creative avenues: art, music, illustration, film, invention, curation, and design.

Hello Studio is an independent artist-run gallery and studio residency that hosts exhibitions showcasing emerging visual artists in and around Texas directed by Amada Miller and Justin Korver.

Tell Me What it Feels Like @ Flax Studio
Mar 2 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Tell Me What it Feels Like @ Flax Studio | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Flax studio hosts Tell Me What it Feels Like, a solo show by Texas based photographer India Treat for Contemporary Art Month 2018.

About the exhibition:

The media depicts women as one-dimensional bodies. Our canons are limited to cleaning, laundry, and eating salads while smiling. The average woman portrayed in the media is young, thin, and white. This limited scope is outdated and stifles young women’s confidence and thus, their potential. A narrow depiction of our sex has allowed for the continued oppression of women and systemic patriarchy, which limits our growth and potential as a culture.

Frustration with this limiting canon lead me to answering this important question: “What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life?” (Muriel Rukeyser, “Käthe Kollwitz”). In order to begin answering this question, I asked the women I knew. “What is your truth? Where do you feel most powerful? Vulnerable? Or Whole?” This work is an exploration of their answers.

The women I photographed wanted to be seen in far more complex ways than the stories we’ve been told. With each new subject I documented, the definition, by which women want to be portrayed, grew. Subsequently, this body of work became more accurate through the representation of a diverse group of women. Their images challenge the male gaze and disrupt a tired narrative. I’ve found that if women told the truth about their lives, “the world would split open” (Muriel Rukeyser, “Käthe Kollwitz”).

About the Artist:

India Treat is a Texas based photographer whose work addresses standards of femininity.

Danville Chadbourne: New Works @ REM Gallery | San Antonio | Texas | United States

ARTIST STATEMENT
Essentially, my work is concerned with evoking spiritual or primal states. I use simple organic forms in suggestive conjunctions that elaborate metaphorical issues of ambiguity, morality, accident/intention, contradiction, or existence itself. There is often an allusion to circumstance, contextual or ritual usage, and time, but in a peripheral, indirect, or generalized way. The works seem interrelated, part of some culture with an elaborate but undefined mythological structure. I’m interested in the intellectual speculation we make about other cultures, especially primitive or ancient ones, based on observation of their artifacts. My forms, materials, and processes imply cultural attitudes that are harmonious with nature and the passage of time. Clay has associative power archeologically, responds well to the expressive needs of my ideas and is relatively permanent. Wood, stone, fiber, bone, and found objects also have connotative powers. This anthropological perception is a key issue in my work.

“Future Castles”-Jeffrey Dell March 3-24 @ Three Walls
Mar 3 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
"Future Castles"-Jeffrey Dell March 3-24 @ Three Walls | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Three Walls pops up at a gorgeous space on the near east side! Please join us for the opening Saturday, March 3 from 7-10 pm at 1160 E. Commerce in St. Paul’s Square (parking available in multiple lots around Sunset Station) for Jeffrey Dell’s “Future Castles.” Exhibition runs March 3-24, by appointment only. Please email for appointment.

Continuing Jeffrey Dell’s focus on the confluence of perception and desire, “Future Castles” draws upon pre-digital populist art histories ranging from ukiyo-e prints to US national park posters and sci-fi novel cover art. The forms in Dell’s screen prints linger between abstraction and realism, accommodating the graphic economy of Japanese print tradition and the visual seduction of trompe l’oeil. Dell is interested in the graphic shorthand that exists between image and symbol; it is a language that preserves mystery and reflection. The use of starscapes and cloud-like forms evoke the cosmos, and the deft use of color and shading produces astonishing visual depth. Dell’s restraint leaves room for the viewer to forge their own personal associations between poetry, mysticism, and nostalgia.

Jeffrey Dell heads the Printmaking Department at Texas State University and lives in San Marcos, TX. Recent exhibitions include the International Print Center of New York; The Print Center of Philadelpia; Rochester Contemporary Art Center; and Galleri Urbane, Dallas. Dell received his MFA from the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque.

ARTISTS:      

JONATHON DAVIS:  Jon, a graduate of the UTSA School of Fine Arts, is an all-around artist with a flair for sculpture. His taste and work are eclectic, pulling inspiration from myth, science, psychology, politics and general life experiences. “I tend to focus on themes of understanding of others through the understanding of the self, cultural perception, and visual perception.”  http://helvenink.com/
RANDY GAY:  Randy makes digitally hand-crafted images using photographs he has taken. “While I consider myself a traditional artist, technology has given me new and different tools to work with. Most of all, technology has given me control of my work. I now have the final say every step of the way from concept to how the ink is applied to the page.” His client list is a “Who’s Who “of San Antonio.  http://www.randygay.com/
PAIGE HOLLAND:  Paige pays the bills by helping clients artistically transform their homes.  She is a skilled craftsman as well as a creative artist.  “Sometimes my service is translating people’s own vision for them in their homes in the form of murals or commission paintings.  I experience life as a productive, fruitful, ever-enriching present and future.”  Her colorful and creative artwork will add immeasurably to this show.                                         http://www.paigehollandartist.net
CINDY PALMER:  Cindy, owner of High Wire Arts Gallery, is both a creative and prolific artist. “My acrylic canvases incorporate the stains and scratches of modern culture revealed by the application and removal of textures and relevant objects that encompass years of unfolding stories. I love to re-create these histories in my work through different materials; sand, flat metal pieces, tossed out wrappers – a chronology of human life and the passage of time.” http://cindypalmerart.com/
BILL SIMONS:  Bill builds art that glows in the dark. The self-proclaimed “Illuminator” was a Featured Artist at the 2017 Luminaria. Several of the pieces he made for that show will be on display, as well as his wearable art, Night Jewelry. “I have always been a builder of things, mostly functional things. Art has offered me the ability to let my imagination soar as I make things that just look cool!” https://www.wgsart.com/
STEVE SMITH:  Steve is a figurative and landscape painter who has exhibited his work in San Antonio for 20+ years. His paintings of musicians have been in books about music and his work was on a Jazz’SAlive festival poster. He was recently named as the San Antonio Art League and Museum’s 2018 Artist of the Year. “In figurative work my goal is to convey the emotion and/or motion of the subject. In my landscapes, I hope to convey a ‘sense of place’ and enable the viewer to experience that location through my painting.”  http://www.sgsmithoriginalart.com
RESA Wohlrabe:  Resa is a San Antonio native. She received her undergraduate degree in ceramics from Texas Tech and her Masters of Fine Arts from Florida State. She teaches art and is a published book illustrator. She has exhibited in front of an international audience at Art Basel in Miami Beach and, among many other accolades, her design was selected as the Official Poster of Fiesta 2016. Her greatest creation is her new child that she welcomed into the world recently! “I just hope that my art brings joy to someone”. http://www.resagroffwohlrabe.com/Instagram: @resacreates

“Reclaimed” at Space Gallery @ Space Gallery
Mar 10 2018 @ 12:00 PM – Jan 26 2019 @ 5:00 PM
"Reclaimed" at Space Gallery @ Space Gallery  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Linda Pace Foundation announces its 2018 exhibition, Reclaimed, a presentation of 25 monochromatic works by some of the most influential contemporary female artists working today, all drawn from the Foundation’s diverse collection. Artists include Laura Aguilar, Dorothy Cross, Judy Dater, Annette Messager, Lorraine O’Grady, Robyn O’Neil, Linda Pace, Tracey Rose, Lara Schnitger and Kiki Smith, with works spanning 1975 through 2009.

As the title implies, the exhibition addresses the concept of ownership—both literally and figuratively—and the notion of “reclaiming” what’s ours, from our lands and governments to our physical bodies and basic human rights. Central to each of the works on view are themes of nature, identity and the female form, often times as a depiction of non-traditional feminine ideals. For instance, in Mexican-American photographer Laura Aguilar’s self-portrait series, Stillness, the artist displays her large, naked body against the natural landscape. By fusing the cracked earth, bulbous rocks and knotted tree trunks of the San Antonio wilderness with the curvatures and folds of her own unconventional shape, Aguilar asserts her beauty as an extension of nature.

Other artists in the exhibition address these themes by exploring the decentralization of the human body. In Annette Messager’s sculptural installation Mes voeux sous filets, dozens of photographs, each containing a single foot, mouth, ear, nose, breast, etc. hang beneath a layer of netting. Inspired by religious relics historically hung from church ceilings, Messager employs these symbols as a commentary on blurred gender binaries and the widespread objectification of the physical form.

Similarly, in Landscape (Western Hemisphere), a single channel video installation, Lorraine O’Grady’s hair serves as the primary subject. Filmed at an extreme close-up and presented without context, the gently-blowing strands are reminiscent of a dense forest, and by drawing this comparison between African American femininity and the western world, O’Grady points to the fraught history of colonization and its continued effects on racial equality today.

Throughout the exhibition, the color palette—or lack thereof—and focus on photography, film, cast sculpture and works on paper, underscores the seriousness of the subject matter and harkens back to more traditional methods of artistic production. A departure from the Foundation’s typical spotlight on experimental and new media works, this unexpected selection provides insight into the depth and variedness of the permanent collection.

About Linda Pace Foundation

Linda Pace Foundation is committed to the charitable vision of its founder. Guided by the donor’s conviction that contemporary art is essential to a dynamic society, Linda Pace Foundation fosters the creation, presentation and understanding of innovative expression through contemporary art.

 Linda Pace Foundation publicly exhibits its collection through loans to museums and Space Gallery, its public exhibition gallery. Free and open to the public Wednesday through Saturday, 12 noon – 5pm, Space Gallery showcases the collection of late philanthropist and artist Linda Pace, as well as related contemporary art exhibitions on an ongoing basis. Visitors enter through Chris Park to access Space Gallery, experiencing the meandering beauty of another of Linda Pace’s creations.

Since 2007, the Foundation has loaned hundreds of works to institutions such as: Pulitzer Arts Center in St. Louis, Missouri, Gwangju Biennale in South Korea, Tate in London, MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass., Brooklyn Museum in New York, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey – MARCO in Mexico and others.

The Foundation fulfills Linda Pace’s vision of supporting the work of international contemporary artists. Acquisitions typically echo the themes and character of Pace’s own collecting, which favored works that reflected a feminist perspective, engaged social issues and considered aspects of spirituality and beauty.

Since Linda Pace’s death in 2007, the Foundation has steadfastly worked towards realizing her vision, in fact her mandate – to create a contemporary art center for the community, artists and the world to experience contemporary art. Sir David Adjaye has designed a building, which will open to the public in 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. The building will exhibit the Foundation’s growing collection and serve as a destination for visitors to contemplate and experience adventurous artwork from the recent past.

AND NOW: New Works by 10 Artists

In the course of artistic expression’s long history as a chronicle of the human experience, a large number of movements and descriptions of art have transpired. Contemporary art’s most defining element is that it is rooted in the here AND NOW. This exhibit is a survey of work very recently created by artists who live in Texas but who represent a diverse array of backgrounds, experiences and influences.  In their own way, each examines a sense of place and identity amidst the technological changes and cultural shifts that propel the new century. Curated by Arturo Infante Almeida

The Light That Remains @ Mantle Art Space
Mar 10 @ 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
The Light That Remains @ Mantle Art Space | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Join us for Second Saturday – Mantle is proud to present “The Light That Remains” from artist Dana Lynn Harper.

“The Light That Remains,” is as much about my emotional recovery as it is about astral dreams and after-life communication. Light is explored as a literal concept through reflective and opalescent materials but also as an abstract idea of light as spiritual power and presence. The works that appear in the exhibition are abstracted visual representations of my metaphysical experiences where I am often thinking about portals that connect our physical and spiritual worlds.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

The Museum of Pocket Art (MoPA) @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co. | San Antonio | Texas | United States

The Museum of Pocket Art (MoPa) will present an artwalk exhibition during Second Saturday,  March 10, 2018 that will start at Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co.

About the Museum of Pocket Art (MoPA)

The Museum of Pocket Art began fourteen 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.

The Museum of Pocket Art (MoPA) Presents Elaine Bradford @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co.
Mar 10 @ 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
The Museum of Pocket Art (MoPA) Presents Elaine Bradford @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co. | San Antonio | Texas | United States

The Museum of Pocket Art (MoPa) will present an artwalk exhibition during Second Saturday,  March 10, 2018 that will start at Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co., featuring artist Elaine Bradford.

Bradford is a collector. She mines thrift and antique stores to find discarded pieces of people’s lives. The collectibles, which viewers might find on a shelf in their house, are transformed. For the Museum of Pocket Art exhibition she is embroidering vintage photographs.The found family photos have been repurposed. The pieces in the exhibition become physical representations of mental relationships, real or imagined. The extensions of embroidery represent hopes, thoughts and fears that can bind people together, or tear them apart. The fibers are  literal portrayals of being wrapped up in another person, and the distance or closeness that can be created between them. There is a lot about longing and unrequited love.

Elaine Bradford lives and works in Houston, TX.  She holds an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts (2003) and a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin (2000). Her work has been included in shows both nationally and internationally. She was one of the founding members BOX 13 ArtSpace, an innovative artist run studio and gallery space in Houston’s East End. She was a resident artist at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft in 2010. In 2011 she completed a permanent civic art commission for the City of Houston at Vinson Neighborhood Library. Throughout 2017, she worked with Houston poet Sara Cress on a project called Routine Fables, where they created a “sculpture poem” every week of the year, which can be viewed at routinefables.com. Their collaboration will be exhibited at Lawndale Art Center in May 2018.

Artist Statement

Balancing fact and fiction, Marino’s work carefully constructs light-hearted attempts to objectify a personal interest in certain places and objects. This interest often stems from an ongoing fascination with cosmic perspective and the astronomical or scientific qualities of everyday life. By acknowledging and investing in what is often overlooked or disregarded, there is a hope to reassign value. By manipulating context, new implications arise and connections are made between the mundane and the remarkable. A Testament to Their Fortitude is a playful nod to the Food Systems Engineering Facility at the NASA Johnson Space Center and their history of testing, analyzing, and packaging food mobile and compact enough for space travel.

Bio

Rebecca Marino is an Austin-based visual artist whose work focuses on cosmic perspective. She has been featured in TX National, grayDUCK Gallery, Art Palace and by the Humble Arts Foundation. For the past four years she has acted as co-director and curator for pump project, but recently took on the role of associate director for Texas State University galleries in San Marcos, Texas. Marino is also co-editor and co-founder of Conflict of Interest, an online publication highlighting literature and visual art in Texas.

Participate in this workshop to open doors for something new, but also strengthen the skills of those that want to continue painting representationally. Use the non objective to build a stronger knowledge of the basic elements of design.
