Also on view in the Connie Swann studio will be a selection of artwork from the UTSA graduate program and other regional artists.
Opening receptions are 6-9 p.m, Thursday, March 6 and 6-10 p.m., Friday, March 7 at the gallery in Blue Star Arts Complex Suite 115 at S. Alamo and Probandt streets. The Friday reception is part of First Friday, the monthly art gallery open house in the Southtown district.
Curated by UTSA graduate student Tommy Gregory, the group exhibition is punctuated by impeccable craftsmanship that suggests nostalgia and a longing for serenity. Each artist uses repetitive elements and organic and synthetic materials to lead the viewer to think about the human relationship to nature.
Medina's sculptures suggest a transformation from an organic to a ritualistic state. Nagle's work is based upon personal history and sensitive observation that is both whimsical and wistful. Stanley creates a synthetic environment that challenges viewers to consider concepts of life and objects and to play a more dynamic role in the installation and their everyday lives.
Gallery hours are noon-6 p.m., Friday-Sunday, or by appointment. For an appointment, contact Connie Swann at (210) 458-4391 (Department of Art and Art History) or (210) 212-7146 (gallery).
