(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 makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
