Student paintings at Fall for Art

Rey Garza Real Estate's Fall for Art event took place the first Saturday in October.  The realtors graciously cleared out their offices, emptied the walls and transformed the space into a pop-up gallery. Realtor Camille Rodriguez Brigant is an avid promoter of local artists here in San Antonio. She and the rest of her team organized this art exhibition and cookout to engage the community.  This was my third show at the office and I am happy that they always include my students' work.  It makes me proud to have their talents recognized outside of the classroom.

Below is Raquel, with her paintings Justice for the 43 and Te Amo.  Hector is pictured with his artwork, Summer Breeze (far left), Lady, Dazed and Confused and The Player.  Also exhibited was the flamingo diptych by Rosa, Paradiso.  

Thank you to everyone, including fellow painters Rowena and Linda, who came out to enjoy the event sponsored by Rey Garza Real Estate.  Thank you Camille for being a great friend to the arts in San Antonio!


Fall For Art at Rey Garza Real Estate

Fall for Art, a pop-up exhibition sponsored by Rey Garza Real Estate, was held on October 3.  The invitational show featured a handful of local artists, both emerging and established.  I exhibited my colored pencil drawings, created in July while I was an artist-in-residence in Italy.  My husband showed a new woodworking piece, a detail of which can be seen in the image below.  It is a topographical map of Texas, routed in layers out of birch veneer plywood.  The show also included some of his birdhouse sculptures and several paintings created by my students at the Cisneros Center.

The event brought in many people from the neighborhood, and I enjoyed meeting other local artists and talking to the community about my artwork.  Thank you to Rey, Camille and everyone else at Rey Garza for supporting local art!
