(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:

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.
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.
The Academy for Teacher Excellence (ATE) in the College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) will host an end of year celebration to honor día del niño (Day of the Child), including hands-on demonstrations, cultural dance performances, scavenger hunts and more.
