Student Exhibit at Rey Garza Realty

My advanced painting students had the opportunity to exhibit their work at Rey Garza Realty, a stop along the On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour.  I have been teaching these painters for a year at the Alicia Trevino Lopez Cener, through the Bihl Haus Arts Go Arts Program.  There were also poetry readings throughout the weekend by the creative writing students of Jim LaVilla-Havelin and Amanda Flores.  Below are some photos of the artists with their work at the opening.

Rey Garza Realty opened up their offices to host our art exhibition, and sponsored our participation in the 8th Annual Studio Tour.  Congratulations on a successful and well received show!  I'm so proud of you all!


8th Annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour

This past weekend was the 8th annual On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour.  Galleries, private studios and businesses featuring local art opened their doors to participate in this yearly event, organized by Bihl Haus Arts.  Rey Garza Realty, a bright and colorful stop on the tour, was the site of my show.  I was a guest artist there alongside Daniel Rios Rodriguez and our students from the Bihl Haus Arts Go Arts Program.  The tours ran all day Saturday and Sunday to steady crowds.  It was a wonderful experience to meet so many people and talk about my art, both content and process.

Thank you to Rey, Terri & Camille at Rey Garza Realty for sponsoring our exhibit and supporting the arts!  If you're looking for a place to call home in the city, give them a call at 210-558-4747.  'Home' (and the search for it) has been a major theme in my artwork these past few years, so it was an especially appropriate venue to share the new paintings.


On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tour

This weekend is the yearly art event in the Deco District of San Antonio.  The On and OFf Fredericksburg Road Studio Tours is a two day, self-guided tour through the studios and galleries of the neighborhood.  #OnAndOffFred is in its eighth year, organized by Bihl Haus Arts.  I am a guest artist on the tour, exhibiting with Daniel Rios Rodqriguez at Rey Garza Realty, 2722 N. Zarzamora.  We will also be highlighting the work of some of our students from the community classes we teach across the city.  Come by Saturday from 11-6 & Sunday from 12-5.  Below is a glimpse of what's been keeping me so busy in my studio this month.  See it in person this weekend!
