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.

Selected works courtesy of the artist

Iranian-born photographer Ramin Samandari is a resident of San Antonio since 1988. He has had solo exhibitions at the University of Incarnate Word’s Center for Spirituality, the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, Carver Cultural Art Center and the San Antonio Museum of Art. He has been a stalwart of the San Antonio art scene. His work is in the permanent collection at San Antonio Museum of Art and University of Texas at San Antonio.

San Antonio Faces of Art consists of a series of portraits giving glimpses into artist’s emotions and psyche, resulting in an important archive of the San Antonio’s visual art community at this point in time.

ALEJANDRO DIAZ
Selected works courtesy of the Sala Diaz Gallery

Based in New York City, Alejandro Diaz is originally from San Antonio, TX where he developed an exciting and pertinent body of work exemplifying the complex and visually rich cultural milieu particular to South Texas and Mexico. Diaz’s work has been reviewed in publications such as the New Yorker, The New York Times, Art in America, the LA Times, Flash Art, Vogue Mexico, Artforum, and Frieze.

Chuck Ramirez (1962-2010), one of San Antonio’s most beloved artists, was a major force in the San Antonio art community before his untimely death in a 2010 cycling accident. A 2002 Artpace resident, Ramirez’ work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. As an artist and graphic designer, Ramirez employed the visual and conceptual techniques found in contemporary advertising and package design, isolating and re-contextualizing familiar objects to explore cultural identity, mortality, and consumerism through his photographs and installations. In 2012, The Smithsonian American Art Museum purchased Ramirez’ limited edition large-format photograph, Seven Days: Breakfast Tacos, for the institution’s permanent collection. The work is currently included in the traveling exhibition Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art.

EXACT CHANGE at Visual Arts Center Gallery (SAC) @ Visual Arts Center Gallery (SAC)
Mar 1 @ 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
EXACT CHANGE at Visual Arts Center Gallery (SAC) @ Visual Arts Center Gallery (SAC)  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Exact Change

In 1880, the art patron Charles Ephrussi purchased Edouard Manet’s Bunch of Asparagus for 1,000 francs. The original price for the painting was 800 francs, however, Ephrussi would become the owner of Bunch of Asparagus with the fervor of overpayment in the amount of 200 francs. The gesture of appreciation of both patron and artist was equally palpable. In fact, Manet quickly sent Ephrussi a smaller painting of a single asparagus with a note that remarked that one spear had “slipped from the bunch”. The artist’s One Asparagus was a gesture of appreciation for Ephrussi’s patronage. Manet could have easily reimbursed the difference in the over payment for Bunch of Asparagus. Further, he could have painted a second One Asparagus to make up for the initial over payment of the original painting by accounting for the smaller scale format and the exact change of 200 francs. Each remaining asparagus spear would have been valued at 100 francs each. Nevertheless, it would be difficult to determine the Parisian practice of selling bunches of asparagus at the tail end of the 19th century without an extensive anthropological survey being conducted. Also, there are no contemporaneous examples to refer to since the number of asparagus spears sold is often determined by weight.

It is admittedly difficult to curate a personally inclusive two-person exhibition; the endeavor seemingly becomes a pursuit of finding a likeminded individual that engages their practice in a similar way. Eventually, the incentive in my choice to include Daniela Cavazos Madrigal revealed a delight that there are differences despite the visceral ethos shared. In any case, the narrative regarding the exchange between artist and patron serves as a conceptual prelude for the Spring 2018 exhibition at San Antonio College’s Visual Arts Center. It employs the comparative qualities that individually autonomous works have in common with generative ideas in the latter cycle of a body of work. As the curator, the metaphorical appropriation of Manet’s Bunch of Asparagus and the subsequent One Asparagus helps create loaded indices that reveal purposeful modification that are seemingly infallible. It is the work of art with in the art that becomes the transitive wholeness that is the ontological proxy for the momentum in an artist’s practice. At times the autonomy of a work is contingent on a singular aspect, not a focal point or symbol but an emphasis of attraction that comprises of a wealth of information. It is not a specific iconographic marker that is associated with signage, rather a particular sublimated object that becomes the trope. But, it manages to avoid the follies of complacent creative apostasy because of the reverberated layers of simultaneous subversive and progenitive inquiry. Perhaps this collective creative process is the trope of exact change. It is a seemingly ephemeral utilization found in the two artist’s works of required beliefs and practices assisting in identifying a hybrid moment. It is an idiomatic hybridization contextualized by specific media, mythology and modalities of presentation. Daniela Cavazos Madrigal and myself are the featured artists in the two-person show that explore the ontological through the inquiry in the fondness and aversion of media choices and revelatory content.

In the original aforementioned painting, the transformative change is affected by the inclusion of the second painting. It obviously continues to exist as an autonomous painting. But, it has been transitively harvested as the impetus for the second singular asparagus spear painting. The deductive sequentiality in this 2D harvesting is analogous to the transformational utilization of unconventional media found in both our work. In fact, the gallery installation will comprise of work from different time periods of each of our practice, all the while maintaining the consistent trajectory that allows for the readability of the exact change in the deductive sequentiality. Madrigal’s body of work is built around the illusive notion of the American Dream. The understanding that inequity is systematic and difference is often met with hostility is the driving force behind her practice. Her work challenges the barriers, both material and transcendent, that exist in our current sociocultural climate. Her work is often informed by the border politics that fracture the immigrant work force and the current emphasis on deportation. Additionally, I’ve always been fascinated with familial rituals and the mythology that initiates them. The use of diaristic iconography that spawns from a variety of visual dialects help create the identity of the work that is forged by past and present experiences with archetypal subject matter. I’ve utilized recent work to navigate through an identity that once was, in order to reach an identity that now is. In the end, our work explores narratives that have some type of moral derivative.

There are difficulties with compartmentalizing our two practices, however the layout of the Visual Arts Center gallery is conducive to the notion of installing two bodies of work that run congruently on an ontologically conceptual horizon. Like most work, the installation will help create complicated discursive examination through its multilayered structures. Again, the appropriation of Edouard Manet and Charles Ephrussi’s exchange is analogous to the unapologetic transformational harvesting that allows the viewer to gain access of critical content in the work.

“Nothing, it would seem, could possibly give to such a motley of effort the right to lay claim to whatever one might mean by the category of sculpture. Unless, that is, the category can be made to become infinitely malleable.” – Rosalind Krauss

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.

Catalina Sour Vasquez | Projets Dissolvants curated by Hillarey Jones @ The Gallery at MBS
Mar 1 @ 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Catalina Sour Vasquez | Projets Dissolvants curated by Hillarey Jones @ The Gallery at MBS | San Antonio | Texas | United States

For this year’s Contemporary Art Month, the Gallery at MBS will present a solo exhibition by French/Chilean photographer, Catalina Sour Vasquez, organized by independent curator, Hillarey Jones.

Vasquez’s series Projets Dissolvants is the catalyst for what has become her own unique, surrealist style. Superimposing imagery that caters to the senses with her delicately designed mise en scene, while utilizing color and über surrealist elements, she allows the viewer to focus on one specific, if not subconscious, component of the photograph – often addressing the social impact of our mundane everyday lives and the toll that it infiltrates on our mental and physical well being. There are direct references, colors or details that placate to a specific smell, touch or often taste. She will shamelessly critique society’s tendencies for mass consumption utilizing a candy coated stage that is easy for us to digest…and almost impossible to resist.

The opening reception will be held on Thursday, March 1, 2018 from 7:30-9:30pm inside the gallery space at MBS. The artist will be present to greet guests and answer any questions. Light refreshments will be provided.

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.

Unheimlich @ Anthem gallery
Mar 2 @ 6:00 PM – 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.

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.

“Colores e Imágenes; Arena y Sangre”
Artist A.J. Rodriguez
 
Artist Statement:
A.J. Rodriquez has always had a passion for sketching and painting. His late-grandmother would provide him with notebook paper to draw on every day in his youth, he was always partial toward drawing on cardboard. Over the years, he has created many pieces of art often donating them to admirers of his work. It is not uncommon for restaurant owners throughout San Antonio to have torn butcher paper sketches of his work where he is often known to sketch before and after meals.
 
AJ’s process begins with a thought, theme or feeling, followed by a rough sketch (sketches and studies almost always accompany his larger paintings). He enjoys painting big, bold pieces that cover a canvas with bright deep rich colors. He is partial to acrylic, metallic, and ink. This show debuts his endeavoring with oils. His paintings have thick strokes in his impressionistic, abstract art. Those observing his work often comment on the movement, shape and multi-dimensional qualities.
 
A.J. was most encouraged by his wife Estelle to take up his palette and brushes once again; she is considered his artistic, and obviously, most trusted advisor, hence “Colecciones de art’ – A.J.’s birth name and “+e” for Estelle. He works from his studios in King William and Lone Star Art Space.
 
A.J. spent time in Mexico City visiting Plaza Mexico researching the pageantry, mystique, brutality, vividness and beauty of the traditional Spanish Bullfight. In this latest series titled “Colores e Imágenes; Arena y Sangre” A.J. works to inspire each observer to suspend judgment of the activity and outcome of this centuries old event and rather focus on the spectacle of the colors, movement, grit and illumination of the intimate relationship and final dance between man and bull. Hemingway comments in “Death in the Afternoon,” “Bullfighting is the only art where the artist is in danger of death…” A.J. was inspired by this level of passion and ultimate commitment to artistic expression.

Daniela Cavazos Madrigal Artist Lecture Visual Arts Center Gallery (SAC) @ Visual Arts Center Gallery Room 120
Mar 6 @ 10:50 AM – 12:05 PM
Daniela Cavazos Madrigal Artist Lecture Visual Arts Center Gallery (SAC) @ Visual Arts Center Gallery Room 120  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Daniela Cavazos Madrigal was born in 1991 in Laredo, Texas. She received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2017 and her Bachelor of Arts from Texas A&M International University in 2013. Currently, Cavazos Madrigal is a self-employed artist living in San Antonio, Texas. Born and raised in a border town, Cavazos Madrigal’s work reflects her interest in socio-cultural issues along the U.S./ Mexico border from the perspective of a woman and mother. Her work employs processes such as embroidery, sewing, and weaving to honor the lineage of “Women’s Work”, as seen in art history, as well as blur the line between high and low art.  As a bilingual, Cavazos Madrigal is interested in how language fails and explores the facets of translation. Cavazos Madrigal comes from a long line of makers and crafters, and through her work, she continues to reinterpret the relationship between discarded materials and language.

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.

Reclaimed opening at Space Gallery @ Space Gallery
Mar 9 @ 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Reclaimed opening at Space Gallery @ Space Gallery  | San Antonio | Texas | United States

The 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 | 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) 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.

Tom Turner Opening Reception @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co. | San Antonio | Texas | United States

Resurrection, a collection of waveform photographs, explores the representation of landscape as a way of seeing. Using topography, the photographic frame creates a trompe l’oeil, generating ambiguous, or even alien, perceptions with little or no anchorage. Terraforming the land in their mind’s eye, the viewer generates mountains, valleys, and impact craters in an attempt to understand and transform wilderness into landscape.

Title: The Cedars of Lebanon

St. Paddy’s Day Beer Release @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co.
Mar 17 @ 5:00 PM – Mar 18 @ 1:00 AM
St. Paddy's Day Beer Release @ Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co. | San Antonio | Texas | United States

No fake green beer at our St. Paddy’s Day Party (you’re welcome). Instead, ring in this year’s National Drinking Holiday with the much anticipated return of our HighWheel Irish Red Ale.

The easy-drinking, Irish-style red ale is full of dark and roasted malts that create a rich malty sweetness with accents of toffee and toast. English hops varieties – UK Fuggle and East Kent Goldings – provide an earthy, balanced bitterness to a traditional ale that finishes dry.

Come early. Stay late.

Michael Menchaca: Vignettes from San Antonio @ Ruiz-Healy Art | Olmos Park | Texas | United States

Ruiz-Healy Art, San Antonio, Texas, is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Michael Menchaca. The exhibition “Vignettes from San Antonio” opens to the public Wednesday, January 24 from 6:00 -8:00 pm and will be on view through May 12, 2018.

Michael Menchaca earned his master’s degree from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design in 2015 with a concentration in printmaking. A San Antonio native, Menchaca is known to juxtapose images from popular culture with Mesoamerican iconography. Vignettes from San Antonio is a new series of work that is inspired by the artist’s hometown. Large collage works speak to the cultural landscape of San Antonio and are made in honor of the city’s Tricentennial. Highlighting such iconic San Antonio scenes as the boots at North Star Mall, Easter weekend Camping at Brackenridge Park, and Fiesta, Menchaca uses Illustrator to build a new codex of hieroglyphs with the essence of the city.
