Happy #FredArtistFriday! Today we're celebrating Robin Gara. "I love the versatility of painting with acrylics. Lately I have begun exploring that fascinating place where landscape meets abstraction." Gara's life journey has taken many twists and turns, but has always brought her back to her love of art. Since retiring from teaching in May of 2015, she has enjoyed having more time and energy to devote to painting. You can catch her at Mockingbird Prints at Blue Star on August 2 at 6pm for the opening of En Plein Aire: 3 Perspectives.

Catch @los.nahuatlatos poolside at the opening of “10,000 Years of Love & Resistance”! There will also be a paleta and margaritas. RSVP by following the link in our bio 📲 🎶 🎥: @los.nahuatlatos .

It's #FredArtistFriday! This week, we're happy to present Conan Chadbourne. Conan received a BA in Mathematics and Physics from New York University in 2011. He has worked in experimental physics research, digital imaging and printing, graphic design, and documentary film production. He draws inspiration for his work from his experience in mathematics and the sciences, and frequently exhibits at the Bridges Conference for Mathematics in the Arts. He lives in San Antonio where he works as a freelance graphic designer and documentary film producer.

"My work is motivated by a profound interest in nature and cosmology and the abstractions which humans use to understand the universe. I draw upon ideas in mathematics, science, psychology, and theology to create my images. These disciplines, each in their way are focused on expanding our understanding of the universe and our place in it. I consider the models and abstractions that these fields use to be fascinating and beautiful, and I try to reflect the intricacy and elegance of these theoretical constructs in my images."

Are you attending the opening reception of "10,000 Years of Love & Resistance"? Not only will this event showcase beautiful works curated by David Zarmora Casa but it will also recognize the 50-year union of Dr. Tomás Ybarra-Frausto and Mr. Dudley Brooks.
Don Tomás Ybarra-Frausto is best known for his series of essays on rasquachismo, a time-honored aesthetic which he describes as a “Chicana/o lived sensibility rooted in working class values. In academia, to be rasquache is to engage in a Chicana/o expression defined by an ability to make do with whatever is at hand. It's the view of the underdog, to make something out of nothing, to make the most out of the least." �

“Hopefully my creations give the viewer a feeling of wanting to live or be there. My landscapes are neither here nor there because they could be anywhere. My trees are distinctive and have a surreal quality about them. My inspiration comes from living near the hill country for the past 25 years and from my roots in west Texas. My art and the process of my technique are unique, and I hope to continue creating, growing and experimenting.” - David Guerrero

Summer flies by when you're having fun in one of our GO! Arts classes! Check out these gorgeous faux stained glass works from the students in Silvia Sariñana's class in District 10.

This week's #FredArtistFriday features Laurel Gibson. She is a professional artist known for both her embroidered works and ceramics. " “My artwork reflects my minds ambition to find enlightenment in an imperfect world. Intense research of philosophies, religions, cultures and physics combine to create unique works of art. Each artwork has its own story enriched with symbols. The embroidered designs and ceramic figures encourage the viewer to see how world is infinitely connected. I create art because I feel a desire to express myself through a visual language."
