Producer and internationally known comedian, Poppy Champlin is touring the country with some of the funniest and most talented comedians in her tour, “Queer Queens of Qomedy.” Champlin artfully selects the best of the best lesbian comedians and has them join her at each comedy venue the tour stops on. Now in its eighth year, the tour is proud to have Curve Magazine as the official sponsor for 2014. The two veteran comedians who will be joining her on her Texas tour are Vickie Shaw and Sandra Valls. The show is relatable to everyone whether they are gay, straight, or bi.
Even if Poppy Champlin hadn’t been crowned “America’s Funniest Real Woman” on The Joan Rivers Show in 1993, it’d be hard not to see this touring lineup of lesbian comics as descendants from Rivers’ royal bloodline. Onstage, Champlin and her fellow queens Vickie Shaw (hearing this Houston grandma drawl “Texan by birth, lesbian by grace,” should be medically prescribed to homophobes) and Sandra Valls (a Laredo native named hottest/most bad-ass lesbian Latina comic by anyone keeping score) talk about sexuality, aging, addiction and other things hushed in “polite society.”

Curated by Deborah Keller-Rihn and Melanie Rush Davis, “Mixing It Up” is a one-stop crash-course in some of San Antonio’s most innovative artists, who experiment in this show with mixed media and photographic images. Given the crazy roster of artists involved, which includes Katie Pell, Juan Miguel Ramos, Kemp Davis, Trish Simonite, Ramin Samandari, Mario Garza, Wesley Harvey, Carra Garza and the curators themselves, this could be anything.

Mercury Project Gallery announces that they will be hosting A Collection of Work for multi-media artist Daniela ZaaZaa Riojas as her debut solo exhibit. The opening reception will take place on September 18, 2014 at 6:30pm. A Collection of Work will include themes from previous series such as personal myth (BloodHistory 2012) cultural displacement and immigration reform (Dysplacia 2011), reclamation of pre-colonial spirituality and Jungian introspection (Being and Becoming 2014), and documenting the undocumented. The exhibit will include artwork through various media including photography, videography, and sound. Riojas demonstrates a deep introspection through Latin culture, history, and mythology. In her latest work "Being and Becoming" Riojas' explores a Jungian self-examination process that favors the rituals and practice of naturalistic spirituality and highlights the idea of the mother as way to balance the ubiquitous reverence of the father figure. Riojas began displaying her work in San Antonio in 2010 as founder, director, and curator of a collaborative community project, The Arts United, whose mission was so promote social awareness through art and literature. Since her involvement, she has become a strong advocate for local art in the San Antonio community. In April of last year, Riojas was recognized as a photographer who demonstrates a quiet compassion that focuses on those who dont quite fit the P.C. mold, and makes them shine, by the San Antonio Current's Best of 2013 showcase. Riojas has had the opportunity to work with San Antonios former poet laureate, Carmen Tafolla, as well as award-winning author, Sandra Cisneros. The work displayed will exhibit Riojas trajectory over the past four years and share an important milestone in the art community of San Antonio.
