(June 18, 2012) -- A group of 13 UTSA alumni and students has formed the Lullwood Group, an artist collaborative. Beginning July 14 and continuing each Second Saturday, the group will curate monthly exhibitions at the 107 Gallery, formerly the LoneStar Studios.

The group hopes the 107 Gallery will become a vital part of the former LoneStar Studios complex, along with the Alternative Ink Gallery, Comminos Studios and LoneStar Studios Food Truck Park. The Lullwood Group includes artists, educators, arts administrators and gallery coordinators who want to bring interesting artists, ideas and experiences to the community.

UTSA alumni in the collaborative are:

  • Angel Axioma Alcala, M.F.A.
  • Emily Barker, B.A.
  • Chris Castillo, B.A.
  • Esteban Delgado, M.F.A.
  • Joseph Duarte, B.F.A.
  • Jenelle Esparza, B.F.A.
  • Joe Harjo, M.F.A.
  • Clay McClure, M.F.A.
  • Willie Sanchez, M.F.A.
  • Connie Swann, M.F.A.
  • Josh Williams, B.F.A.

Current UTSA students in the collaborative are:

  • Trina Faundeen, B.F.A. student
  • Julie Ledet, M.F.A. student

With the goals of encouraging participation, fostering exploration and promoting art discovery in many forms, the collective will kick off its Corridor Series in July, which will include artists living and working along the Interstate 35 and Interstate 10 corridors. The Second Saturday exhibits will be from 6 to 9 p.m.

Featured artists for July will include Gillian Lambert from San Antonio and Brittney Meyer from Houston. Both artists recently were featured in Juxtapoz magazine.

James Woodard and Jeannette Muniz will book musical entertainment. Say.She.Ate will continue to provide their food truck fair for all 107 Gallery openings. Woodard is part of The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, which was voted San Antonio's best instrumental band; Muniz is part of the "Good Job Texas" radio show.

The collective recently participated in San Antonio's Luminaria, creating a geocache adventure using art installations that paid homage to the mascot of HemisFair '68, Luther the Lion, who later became the cult classic character, H.R. PufnStuf. Geocaching is a treasure hunting game that uses a GPS to hide and seek containers with special objects. It is a derivation of the outdoor sporting activity Geotrekking.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
