If one were to imagine the American pop-art movement cultivated south of the border, the translation might look something like “Neo-Mexicanidad,” a genre championed by Guadalajara-born painter Ismael Vargas. In his vibrant canvases, Vargas puts a kaleidoscopic spin on iconic Mexican fixtures — sombreros, masks and ceramics seem to repeat ad infinitum — while presenting everyday objects in oddly compelling arrangements. On Thursday, Ruiz-Healy Art unveils Vargas’ aptly titled “Echoes of Mexico” and a companion catalog featuring an essay by esteemed local author John Phillip Santos. Free, 6-8pm Thu, Ruiz-Healy Art, 201-A E. Olmos Drive, (210) 804-2219, ruizhealyart.com. — Bryan Rindfuss
