  • Brian Phillips & Tim Kerr:

    With a nod to exquisite corpse, “You Are Here” highlights a collaboration between Tim Kerr and Brian Phillips. Kerr studied painting and photography at UT–Austin and played a key role in Texas’ early punk scene as a founding member of Big Boys and other bands. Louisiana native Phillips illustrates his mantra “One man’s junk pile is another man’s art supplies” with puzzle-like constructions built from reclaimed wood. A tribute to inspiring icons, the duo’s joint project involved Kerr painting portraits of Rosa Parks, Evel Knievel and many more on surfaces pieced together by Phillips.

    Lucy Helton: "Fire" 9/13 7:00PM

    The images presented in Fire are what remained from the post-apocalpytic wildfire in Bastrop County. Captivated by a discovery that destruction can transform to beauty, she documented the catastrophes she believes are caused by climate change. If so, these photographs are evidence of human carelessness, highlighting the weighty significance of our present actions, as what remains becomes the history of our species, the legacy we leave behind.

  • “San Antonio|The Saga”   

    French artist Xavier de Richemont has created high-tech sets for theater and opera and collaborated with the avant-garde visionary Robert Wilson but is arguably best known for his dazzling video installations, which have graced the facades of historic locales across Europe, Canada and Mexico. On view periodically for the next decade, Richemont’s 23-minute spectacle “San Antonio|The Saga” employs San Fernando Cathedral as a canvas to “narrate the historical discovery, settlement and development of San Antonio” via a 7,000-square-foot projection choreographed to music in surround sound.

  • Recently named Best Gallery in Louisiana by American Art Awards, New Orleans-based Octavia Gallery showcases modern masters alongside emerging and established artists from around the world, with an emphasis on Cuba. Set to open this month, the gallery’s Houston outpost will focus on forging relationships with Texas artists while providing members of Octavia’s international roster a platform in the Lone Star State. Offering a taste of the gallery’s unique curatorial slant, the pop-up exhibition “Summer Solstice” features paintings and sculptures by nine artists including SA’s own Waddy Armstrong, Jerry Cabrera and Rodolfo Choperena. Curated by Alice Carrington Foultz, the group show explores the balance between light and shade via works capturing forest canopies, golf courses, swimming pools and hot summer afternoons.

  • Anita Valencia:

    Throughout the past three decades, Anita Valencia’s installations and paintings have invited viewers to engage with material culture, environmental justice, nature and the spirit within. Presented by Joan Grona, Valencia’s new exhibit “Cirrostratus” comprises “stained-glass-inspired bottle cap pieces, butterfly works that flutter from aluminum cans and candy-wrapper collages reminiscent of an enchanted garden.”

  • Ed Saavedra:

    Although often identified as FL!GHT Gallery’s “Senior Creative Co-conspirator,” Ed Saavedra is also an accomplished artist who’s represented in San Antonio Museum of Art’s permanent collection and has exhibited work in Peru, Mexico and Spain. For his new solo show, Saavedra—who also loans his talents to “ghost arting”—released little more than a photograph of himself crossing the Rio Grande wearing a blazer. When reached for comment, the Houston native mentioned Judge Roy Bean’s saloon and The Terracotta Army among other unexpected references viewers might discover in his latest paintings and three-dimensional works.

  • Born in New York in 1890, Paul Strand started taking photography seriously circa 1907, when he was studying under social reformer and documentary photographer Lewis Hine at the Ethical Culture School and frequenting soon-to-be mentor Alfred Stieglitz’s Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession (later known as 291). With encouragement from Stieglitz (who published Strand’s earliest work in his seminal quarterly Camera Work), Strand sharpened up his soft-edged aesthetic and developed a naturalistic style that loaned itself to stark cityscapes, candid street portraits (clandestinely executed with a rigged camera) and still lifes touted as “the first photographic abstractions to be made intentionally.” In 1932, Strand set out to document Mexico’s changing landscape—a project proposed by composer Carlos Chávez, who was then director of the fine arts department of the Secretaría de Educación Pública. While there, Strand worked with Chávez on the documentary-turned narrative film Redes (concerning the plight of fishermen) and created more than 175 large-format negatives and 60 platinum prints depicting small towns, fieldworkers, churches and religious icons. Recently acquired by the McNay as a gift from local collector Susan Toomey Frost, “The Mexican Portfolio” highlights this ’30s-era time capsule through a set of 20 photogravures first published in the 1940 book Photographs of Mexico.

  • This exhibition, organized by René Paul Barilleaux, the McNay's Chief Curator/Curator of Art after 1945, assembles the work of thirteen emerging and mid-career abstract painters whose art is characterized in whole or part by high-key color, obsessive layering of surface imagery, use of overall and repeated patterns, stylized motifs, fragments of representation, and a tension between melancholy and the sublime. To date, little focus has been placed on works which celebrate the exoticism, exuberance, and optimism found in the work of the painters assembled in Beauty Reigns. Beauty Reigns is accompanied by an illustrated book that includes two essays by Lilly Wei and Stephen Westfall contextualizing this approach to abstract painting and tracing its roots in twentieth-century art. Additional biographical and interpretative texts on each of the artists are authored by Barilleaux. The book Beauty Reigns reflects the dynamic nature of the exhibition in its aesthetic, approach, and design; expands the imagery seen in the museum; and offers a larger window into the work of these artists and their particular approaches to painting. Artists included in the exhibition are: Jose Alvarez, Kamrooz Aram, Charles Burwell, Annette Davidek, Fausto Fernandez, Nancy Lorenz, Ryan McGinness, Beatriz Milhazes, Jiha Moon, Paul Henry Ramirez, Rex Ray, Rosalyn Schwartz, Susan Chrysler White. This exhibition was organized by the McNay Art Museum.

  • "Matisse: Life in Color" 7/31 10:00AM

    Spanning six decades of his life’s work, “Matisse: Life in Color, Masterworks from the Baltimore Museum of Art" showcases the comprehensive, expressive, revealing and evolving indulgence of 20th century master Henri Matisse and the richness of his exterior world. The show, assembled from the renowned Cone Collection, features the artist’s definitive pieces such as The Yellow Dress (above), Large Reclining Nude, Purple Robe and Anemones and includes 80 paintings, works on paper and sculptures. A companion exhibit, “The Art Books of Henri Matisse,” opens the following week.  

  • "Art in the Garden" 7/31 9:00AM

  • "Pace Gems" 7/31 12:00PM

    A former stable the late artist and philanthropist Linda Pace repurposed as her studio, 111 Camp Street housed the Linda Pace Foundation offices until recently and is now open as SPACE, the Foundation’s first public facility. Tucked in the northeast corner of CHRISpark, SPACE will showcase works from the Foundation’s stellar permanent collection along with related contemporary art exhibitions and programming. Curated by LPF’s former Executive Director Maura Reilly and organized by Collection and Exhibitions Officer Kelly O’Connor, SPACE’s inaugural show “Pace Gems” reflects Pace’s “overarching collection criteria,” which focused on artists linked to Artpace, the “laboratory of dreams” she founded in 1995. While it highlights a number of New Yorkers (including Jim Hodges, Glenn Ligon, Marilyn Minter and Wangechi Mutu), “Pace Gems” also represents SA natives like Franco Mondini-Ruiz, Dario Robleto and even Pace herself.

    Street Eaters 7/31 9:00PM

    A romantic coupling as the foundation of a band can mean bad news; just ask Rumors-era Fleetwood Mac how that arrangement holds up in the face of meteoric success. But, Berkeley’s Street Eaters appear to have a working model of how to juggle it all, while avoiding the six-second bubble gum appeal and tradeoff melodies of the many twee, indie pop couples out there. On their new release, Blood::Muscles::Bone, Megan March and Johnny Geek churn through 10 songs of stripped-down punk, relying on March’s drums and Geek’s bass to propel Street Eaters’ formidable energy. With SA’s Sheila and the Chilaquiles, and Smokey Robinsons.

    Josh Wolf 8/1 8:00PM

    There seem to be two kinds of comedy fans in 2014: those to whom a Chelsea Lately credit is a come-on and those to whom it’s a warning flag. In the case of Josh Wolf, this binary proves as dumb as most. Though at 40-plus he looks every bit the Mannish Boy Frat Daddy, and his style—confidently delivered observations about sex and other bodily functions (what before the ’90s alt/club split was commonly known as “comedy”)—is definitely panel-ready, his actual life experiences as a single dad give his material and outlook a broader appeal than any niche he might appear to fit.
