Printmaker, painter, mixed-media artist, former UTSA art professor and local treasure Meredith Dean has a creative impulse that simply will not quit. Aside from teaching (until 2014) and creating bold, color-rich abstract works (which

 have been shown across the country and internationally), Dean founded the Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy (along with her late husband) and serves on several important local/regional arts boards. In her latest exhibit “Silent Stanzas,” which is a collection of relief monoprints and wall sculptures, Dean explores her fascination with mapping, topography and the effects of natural forces on the contours of the earth. Comprised of two complimentary bodies of work, the exhibit is the result of Dean’s desire to “express the inter-changeable, constantly shifting, poetic, visual symbols and signs with which we attempt to describe our world.” Free, opening reception 6-9pm Sat, Jul. 1, on view noon-6pm Fri-Sat through Aug. 8, REM Gallery, 219 E. Park Ave., (210) 224-1227, remgallery.com.
