An opening reception is 6-9 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 2 at the UTSA Satellite Space in the Blue Star Arts Complex, Suite 115, at S. Alamo and Probandt streets.
The exhibit will be open for First Friday, the monthly Southtown gallery open house, from 6 to 9 p.m., Aug. 3. Regular gallery hours are noon-6 p.m., Friday-Sunday, or by appointment.
"DeNature" features new work of six graduate students that investigates various aspects of nature and our role within the natural world. Using a variety of organic and synthetic materials, each artist recreates sculptural aspects of nature, deconstructing and constructing ideas of what is natural and how nature affects the psyche.
Ranging from sculptures reflecting the minutia of life, to sculptures that reflect the bleak undertones of earth's present state, the exhibition scrutinizes the diversity of relationships that humans have with nature.
