Mini-Symposium in SA

Folks, I will be headed to San Antonio tomorrow night for a weekend trip. The occasion is a mini symposium at the Bihl House Gallery that will mark Adriana Garcia's first solo art exhibition. You may remember Adriana from our earlier post about her mural on Zarzamora. This month, she is exhibiting paintings based on stories told by her grandfather Rodolfo, a carpero whom I interviewed extensively. The portrait at left, which shows Mr. Garcia after he lost both feet to diabetes, should give you a sense of her aesthetic. I will join Adriana and Michaele Haynes of the Witte Museum on a panel from 2-4. Come on down! Here's the information.
Entre La Carpa/Inside the Tent continues though August 30, 2008. Gallery hours are Fridays and Saturdays, 1-4 pm. Bihl Haus Arts ( is a not-for-profit contemporary art gallery located at 2803 Fredericksburg Rd., on the premises of Primrose at Monticello Park Senior Apartments, an affordable housing community. The gallery is made possible with the generous support of The Potashnik Family Foundation and Primrose. This exhibit is an official CAM event. For more information, (210) 383-9723
Adriana's folks have been kind enough to offer to host me, and I won't have a car. If at all possible, I'll try to head up to Austin to see Rachel read from her new book, Elijah's Farm. Whether you can make the reading or not, buy the book!!!

Unfortunately, I'll be leaving before the big Steve Jordan Tribute at the H&H Ballroom on the outskirts of Austin. Lola and her family and I went there to see the Latin Breed before we moved to Colorado. It's a great dance hall that serves Budweiser beer in sleek aluminum bottles. Alas, you can't do everything.
