10 Things You Have To Do This Weekend

October 3, 2013

1. ‘Monumental’

Monumental

A fixture on the Alamo City’s contemporary art landscape since 1993 and a champion of First Friday’s original mission, UTSA’s off-campus Satellite Space breaks in its new digs at SAY Sí this week with a group show culled from an open call for submissions. As epic as the gallery’s departure from the Blue Star Arts Complex might seem to some, “Monumental” doesn’t address the hop across the tracks or the end of an era, but the “formal properties of texture, immediacy and space, alongside the unifying theme of personal and social indulgences.” Curated by Katherine Garner, the exhibition of large-scale drawings, paintings and prints unites artists from San Antonio, Houston, San Marcos and Dripping Springs (including Garner, Michael Villarreal, Lisa Samson, Daniel Gray, Alyssa Moody, Julio Barrientos, Krista Quiroga and Megan Spacek) in a visual dialogue touching on themes of violence, mapping, communication and consumerism. Free, 6-9pm Thursday-Friday, UTSA Satellite Space (located inside SAY Sí), 1518 S Alamo, (210) 458-4391, art.utsa.edu.
