Tonight’s Opening Reception of “American History Does Not Begin with the White Man” will go on rain or shine! See you at 6pm

This #FredArtistFriday we're celebrating Thelma Ortiz Muraida!
Born in San Antonio, Texas, Thelma Muraida began her artistic journey in grade school with interests in drawing and piano. Her formative years were filled with visits to art museums and exposure to classical music. On entering college however, she put her music training aside and began to focus on the visual arts.
She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Trinity University, and continued her training with graduate work in printmaking and textiles at Eastern Michigan University and the Art Student’s League in New York. Her work in these areas has received several awards in fine art and print-based media.
With a background in painting, printmaking, and graphic design, she uses her choice of media to reflect her inner voice, telling a story with intense colors, indigenous designs and weaving patterns and textures. She incorporates semblances of ancient design into her work – reinterpreting them to create a new expression of tribute to the past.
Muraida has used her education and experience to good effect, working in the fields of graphic design and children’s book illustration.

Allow us to introduce Norma Moore and featured artist for this week’s #FredArtistFriday! "Our experiences shape our lives.
My love of the visual arts was tempered by the practicality to find work as a teacher. So my pursuit of both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in art education provided me with the academic credentials to teach art in the public schools for more than 20 years. That wealth of day-to-day experience tempered my shyness and provided a window to understanding the importance of the arts.For me, it was painting.
Painting afforded me the means to examine how perceptions of the landscape shape our interactions with it and vice versa. The images in my paintings come from my walks, camping trips, work in the garden, and general interactions with my surroundings. Technically, color and textures are the most investigated elements in my paintings.
Currently, I am working on three series: Love Songs for Earth, Life’s Jackets and Flowers of Sorrow and Hope."

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday for the Closing Reception of "10,000 Years of Love and Resistance", and a big thank you to Jo Reyes-Boitel, Anel Flores, Joyous Windrider Jiménez and Autumn Summers for their beautiful readings.

It's #FredArtistFriday and this week we're excited to highlight Roberto Cañedo. Roberto studied at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and served in the United States Air Force. He currently has work being shown in a self portrait exhibition in Chicago. "Lately, I have focused on non-objective, and purely abstracted forms that are built up with a thick application of my own mix of plaster, glue, and gesso.The shapes that form are indicative of stuff we see in nature, or in own minds eye. Color is very important because it resonates with different moods; (yellow happy, blue spiritual, red passion), etc. I love the human form, don’t get me wrong; but we aren’t the center of the universe, and therefore, a more infinite approach to making ART, is my aim. So, I hope to show how these two are integrated into one pictorial image; at times clearly, and at other times, very subtle. All I want to do is show the beauty and the beast in the everyday."

Have you RSVP'd for this weekend's closing reception of "10,000 Years of Love and Resistance?" Don't miss your last chance to view this beautiful exhibition with an LGBTQ+ reading by Jo Reyes-Boitel, Anel Flores, Joyous Windrider Jiménez and Autumn Summers. RSVP in our bio. 🏳️‍🌈
