Exhibition at Rey Garza Real Estate


Rey Garza Real Estate in San Antonio invited my husband Steven and I to put together an art exhibition on May 16th.I organized several additional artists to fill the space and transformed their offices into a popup exhibition for the day. We filled the first room with our recent painting, woodworking and photography.  Exhibiting in the second room was local artist Rikkianne Van Kirk alongside my advanced painting students from the Alicia Trevino Lopez Center.  Thank you so much to Camille, Rey & Terri for welcoming us into the area and promoting local art!  This would not have been possible without their support. The office, a beautiful historic home on the corner of N. Zarzamora, is located in the Deco District.  This past year, it was a stop for the 8th Annual On & Off Fredericksburg Road Studio Tours.

Pictured above are my advanced painting students with their artwork. Celia (left) sold her artwork during the exhibition!  She began painting about four years ago, after receiving art supplies as a gift for her birthday. 

Steven and I worked hard in the weeks leading up to the exhibition.  We both created new series of works specifically for the show.  'Family Portraits' is a collection of small paintings (12 x 12") using alternative stencil techniques. They can be seen in the photo above, to the right.  Steven constructed what seemed like an endless amount of miniature birdhouses for his woodworking and photography series, titled 'Neighborhood.'

While we were dating back in South Carolina, we had two collaborative exhibitions.   Wonders and Blunders was curated and shown by Teresa Roche at the Art & Light Gallery as well as the Village Studios and Gallery in West Greenville.  It was fun to work together again toward a creative goal, this time around as husband and wife.

It was a beautiful day-the rain held out and we were able to have seating outdoors.  Rey and his team cooked up some delicious food and turned the backyard into a relaxing gathering spot.  Thank you to all of our friends and neighbors who came out to see the show.  We enjoyed being surrounded by such good energy.  A special congratulations to Cora and Camden, who were introduced to the world of art exhibitions last Saturday!
