"A Soft Unveiling of Important Art Projects That May or May Not Come to Light"
If you’ve ever dined at Rosario’s, SoLuna or Chez Vatel Bistro, you may have noticed the work of Gilbert Durán, a self-taught artist whose mastery with a paintbrush lends itself to everything from traditional wildlife paintings to irreverent takes on iconic works by Botero, Kahlo and Warhol. Possibly best known for his wry remix Frida Margarita
(not to mention a supersized fork that got Stone Oak’s panties in a bunch), the self-dubbed artist non grata’s latest brings together a number of “secret” paintings and sculptures, maquettes for unrealized public art projects and a gleaming tribute to the Spurs. Free, 4-8pm Fri, Studio 911, 911 S. St. Mary’s St., duran-arte.com. — BR
