Kristy Perez
Although she’s likely best known for her realistic drawings of skulls and bones, local artist Kristy Perez also sculpts, paints, designs and collaborates with her partner Britt Lorraine on sets and concepts for contemporary dance pieces. Possibly even lesser known are Perez’s poems, which stemmed from the attention she gives to the titles of her pieces. Curated into her first group show by late local legend Chuck Ramirez in 2006, Perez earned an Artist Foundation of San Antonio grant in 2007 and has exhibited consistently ever since. Lately, Perez has been busy at work on “The Giving Distance,” a solo exhibition opening July 27 at the Southwest School of Art. In addition to two large-scale portraits (one of herself, one of Lorraine), one of the show’s key elements is a bound book combining minimalist, mixed-media abstractions, representational drawings and poems. Solo exhibitions by local photographer Jack McGilvray (“The Lake House”) and painter Kristy Deetz (“Through the Veil”) open in tandem. Free, 5:30-7:30pm Thu, Southwest School of Art–Navarro Campus, Russell Hill Rogers Gallery II, 1201 Navarro St., (210) 224-1848, swschool.org. — Bryan Rindfuss
