As the local art crowd knows, the citywide celebration known as Contemporary Art Month often arrives early and stays late. Leading the pack of eager beavers, the Southwest School of Art’s trio of CAM exhibitions opens with a winning combination of local and national talent. Bound by an attitude that “challenges assumptions of popular culture, the medical industry, and even the constructed and natural worlds,” New York-based British artist Andrew Havenhand joins celebrated San Antonio artists Jesse Amado and Kelly O’Connor to present “Confections and Fictions” in Russell Hill Rogers Gallery I. Founded by Australian twins Margaret and Christine Wertheim, the Los Angeles-based Institute for Figuring exists at the crossroads of art and science and has creatively explored topics ranging from the physics of snowflakes to the hyperbolic geometry of sea slugs. Described as a “collective artistic response to global warming,” the IFF’s traveling Crochet Coral Reef project takes over the adjoining gallery. And across Navarro in the Ursuline Hall Gallery, local artist and Current contributor Jeremiah Teutsch unveils “Epicaricacy,” a selection of “political caricatures and drawings of local personalities.” Free, 6-8pm Thu, Southwest School of Art, 300 Augusta, 224-1848, swschool.org. — Bryan Rindfuss
