This Saturday (Second Saturday)

We are going to be super busy this Saturday, lots of events to cover! See if you can make it to one or all of them! There will be tons of great art, people, and music!

Here is what out Itinerary looks like:

Starting off at the Bubblehaed Hand Made Market from about 4 - 6pm

Then moving to the Gallista Gallery to the "Humanness Thereafter" Opening

Date: Saturday, July 11, 2009

Time: 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Gallista Gallery
Street: 1913 S. Flores Street
City/Town: San Antonio, TX

Sixteen new paintings by local artist Alejandro Padilla will be on view at Gallista Gallery July 11 through August 5.Following the success of his 2008 Contemporary Art Month show, Sanctified Science/Theoretical Sacrament, Padilla returns this year with Humanness Thereafter. This new series of works builds upon Organic and Geometric Symbolism, an idea that Padilla first developed and explored in his previous show. Of his new work, Padilla says, “If Sanctified Science/Theoretical Sacrament represented the shortcomings and failures of man, then Humanness Thereafter is the antithesis of that show because the work now emphasizes the persistence and adaptation of man.” Padilla’s signature use of undulating organic forms combined with the stabilizing presence of geometric shapes depicts an awareness of human existence devout to the inevitable evolution of man. There will be an opening reception on Second Saturday, July 11 from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM.

We will then be headed to the Lonestart Art Studio for the TWO divided by DOS Opening:
