Kerr Arts & Cultural Center swings into Fall with a lineup of shows drawn from dramatically different genres in the art world.
The “Fusion:Fiber & Glass” show features wide-ranging works in glass and fiber by two groups, the Fiber Artists of San Antonio and the San Antonio Glass Art Guild. A parallel exhibit by Blue Horse Glass is entitled “Refractions: A Study in Color by Fire and Glass Design”.
In a statement issued by the Fiber Artists of San Antonio, the work of their fourteen women fiber artists is described as “… inspired by virtually the entire material and spiritual world; the “the secret handshake” of symbols and archetypes, sumi-e Japanese ink painting, the juxtaposition of hard and soft, bones from a highway shoulder, moist stream beds, and tattered and mended garments. Materials range from cotton and thread to wire, string, bamboo, paper, antlers, paint, silk and wool. “
In an entirely different but delightfully complementary vein, the Hill Country Camera Club’s annual juried show “Photoquest 2017” will present the work of its members as they capture images of the world from always surprising angles, whether in their own backyard or halfway around the world on a photographic expedition. The images that this show presents are always intriguing and, frankly, a lot of fun.
Finally, the wife-husband team of Phyllis and Douglas Garey will show their highly individualistic works in an exhibit entitled “Homage”, and their work invites visitors to make of it what they will. The Gareys’ artwork is a bit mysterious and is well worth the time to look closely and carefully.
The “Fusion:Fiber/Refractions” shows and Photoquest run from August 24 through September 24, and “Homage” runs from August 24th through October 5th. The reception for all three September shows will be Saturday, August 26th from 2-4 pm at KACC, with complementary beverages and snacks. These and all KACC exhibits are free and open to the public.
