"Cape 3" by Jerry Cabrera

UTSA Satellite Space painting exhibit explores bullfighting

(Jan. 7, 2005)--The UTSA Satellite Space presents "Verb," an exhibit of paintings by UTSA graduate student Jerry Cabrera, from Jan. 28-Feb. 13. An opening reception, free and open to the public, is 6-9 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 3.

Cabrera's M.F.A. exhibition examines cultural issues of the bullfighting tradition. According to the artist, removing the subjects (the bull or matador) from the event focuses on the active beauty, or verb, found in the movement of the cape. Additional works in the exhibition respond to motion and color abstracted from the cape paintings.

The UTSA Satellite Space, 115 Blue Star, is in the Blue Star Contemporary Art Center, at South Alamo and Probandt streets. Gallery hours are noon to 6 p.m., Friday-Sunday or by appointment.

For more information, contact Julie Shipp, UTSA Satellite Space, at (210) 212-7146 or (214) 532-0220, or Jerry Cabrera at (210) 887-2639.
