"Uncharted Territory"

Though it may not be immediately obvious, artist John Mattson works with a “deeply personal visual language” that takes shape in abstract-leaning paintings and photographs that celebrate “the ironic, the whimsical and the beauty of the mundane.” In tandem with a 40-year career that’s involved jobs in industrial painting and sandblasting and a recent stint as preparator at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Mattson has shown extensively in the U.S. and is represented in private collections. “Uncharted Territory” sees Mattson furthering an artistic trajectory rooted in projects that seek to “trigger emotion.” Free, 6-9pm, 219 E Park, (210) 224-1227,
