Since the summer of 2015, the McNay has been annually showcasing works by South Texas artists in pop-up exhibitions to exemplify the museum’s mission — opening new doors through artist empowerment. Newly renovated, the Tobin Exhibition Galleries host this year’s presentation of a dynamic range of pieces provided by five San Antonio artists and one Austin-based artist, all hand-selected by René Paul Barilleaux, Head of Curatorial Affairs at the McNay. Featured artists include Jane Dunnewold and her collection of antique quilts of salvaged clothing; Ana Fernandez with fantastic landscape paintings depicting San Antonio neighborhoods; Kelly O’Connor, who uses icons and popular imagery of the ’50s and ’60s to create wistful psychedelic collages; Curt Slangal, who incorporates old family photographs, nature and spirituality with modern elements of graphic and pop art; Andy Villarreal, whose Mesoamerican-inspired paintings erupt with effervescent energy and color; and Austin’s Sally Webber, who creates analytical artwork tracing light, space and the path of the human eye. $5-$10, 10am-5pm Sat, noon-5pm Sun, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N. New Braunfels Ave., (210) 824-5368, mcnayart.org. — KR
