“Texas Draws III”

Texas Draws

Inaugurated in 2009, the Southwest School of Art’s “Texas Draws” series functions as a biennial survey of “eloquent, expressive drawn works that reveal the power of a simple line or mark and the complexity of the drawn surface.” In its first two installments, the exhibition has highlighted local favorites (Jayne Lawrence, Katie Pell, Judith Cottrell, Alex Rubio and the late Regis Shephard, to name a few) alongside regional artists and such wild-card elements as a performance by the collective Electric Dirt and a Collaborative Continuous Drawing Project that invited gallery-goers to contribute to a 33-foot-long work of art. Embracing both the reverent (Mark Hogensen’s ink drawing Vice & Virtue (office) depicts a desk with architectural clarity) and the whimsical (Jeff F. Wheeler’s Wish You Were Here, above, presents a postcard-inspired mashup rendered in mixed media), “Texas Draws III” unites works by the likes of Jorge Alegría, Kim Bishop, Sara Frantz, Tina Fuentes, Marshall K. Harris, Katie Maratta, Kermit Oliver and Robert Pruitt. Free, 6-8pm Thu, Southwest School of Art, Navarro Campus, 300 Augusta, (210) 224-1848, swschool.org. —Bryan Rindfuss
