35 Wonderfully Wicked Images from UTSA's Group Show 'Daydreams and Other Monsters'

Curated by Alana Coates, UTSA’s group exhibition “Daydreams and Other Monsters” features internationally acclaimed artist Peter Saul, whose work is characterized by “a strong counterculture aesthetic and a wild politically incorrect figurative practice,” John Hernandez, a celebrated Texas artist who works with “lurid colors and eccentric sometimes outlandish subjects,” Megan Solis, an inventive and boundary-pushing San Antonio artist with a style that’s both saccharine and repulsive, and Louie Chavez, a young local artist who culls as much of his influence from meme culture as he does his study of artists like Saul. Free, artist talk noon Mon, Jul. 17; on view noon-3pm Mon-Fri through Aug. 4 (closed Jul. 3-4), UTSA Main Gallery, One UTSA Circle, (210) 458-4391, art.utsa.edu.
