  • Roberto de la Selva, At the Fair (En la Fería) 1934

The new year brings new opportunities for cultural awareness/perspective via great art at the San Antonio Museum of Art. Opening on Friday and running through June 26 is a small but rich exhibit of brilliant works on wood by Nicaraguan-born Mexico City transplant Roberto de la Selva (1895-1957). The painter’s work is hallmarked by his depiction of the joy and melancholy of rural, indigenous Mexican life and by his use of wood as canvas, which serves to dampen his vibrant color palette and lend an uncanny sense of organic life to his paintings. $5-$10, 10am-9pm Fri, 10am-5pm Sat-Sun, 10am-9pm Tue, San Antonio Museum of Art, 200 W. Jones Ave., (210) 978-8100, samuseum.org. Through June 26. — JC
