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.

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.

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.”

                            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.

                            Is it Nurture or is it Nature?  Investigating sex, animals, dripping cakes, flowers, and the everyday object, artist curator Carol Cunningham brings together five artist's each whom injecting whimsy and flamboyance into the art world. Join us on Friday July 11th at Second Friday on Beacon Hill to welcome 4 new exhibiting artist to Clamp Light Artist Studios and Gallery -  Ann Wood (Galveston, TX), Clare Little (Santa Barbara, CA), Scotty Hensler (Lubbock, TX), Carol Cunningham (San Antonio, TX), and Clamp Light Resident artist Wes Harvey (San Antonio, TX). Along with questioning societal interactions and the self, Nurture & Nature examines the human condition by reconfiguring scenarios that occur on a day to day basis. In juxtaposing stereotypes and domesticity with the cute and gross, Nurture & Nature creates a gallery size curiosity similar to that of a Renaissance Cabinet of Curiosity encouraging scientific investigation.

                          • 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.

                            Secession Gallery 107 opens its doors at Blue Star this week with the first look at an ambitious photography project focusing on a variety of issues including oil exploration, the environment and multiculturalism. Titled “Work Prints,” the two-year-long endeavor tasks photographers with capturing what America looks like today. Inspired in part by the “in-depth projects of the big picture magazines” that flourished before the Information Age, “Work Prints” aims to examine the present through an old-school lens that involves constructing a darkroom and printing a series of zines.

                          • The new special exhibition Paper, Pencil & Ink: Prints & Other Works on Paper, mixes modern masters with Texas-based artists. The exhibit will run from July 10th until August 30th and will feature several artists.  

                          • "Flatland" 7/29 12:00PM

                            The “melting pot” metaphor exists to encourage a harmonious convergence of cultures into an assimilated stew of greatness. “Flatland” suggests a similar model, but with much more ambiguous undertones. Ten local and international artists will converge this Friday to address the world’s growing “flat” mentality—to juggle ethnicity, heritage and cultural experience. Featured artists, including Carlos Aires (Spain), Ricardo Rendón (Mexico) and Francisco Merel (Panama), will react to the inevitable loss of agency derived from individuality when cultural identities collide.
