“Aquí No Más,” “Trust” & “Things I Draw at Night”

A graphic, street-smart sensibility connects “Aquí No Más,” “Trust” and “Things I Draw at Night” — a trio of exhibitions functioning as both Presa House Gallery’s first full-fledged offering in its reclaimed original space and its final shindig of 2017. A multimedia artist who draws inspiration from “his childhood in Pomona, lowrider culture, graffiti, raves, streetwear, 1990s culture, typography, professional design and illustration” but also “builds vintage Schwinn Stingrays, invents new zine genres, and art-directs gourmet burger festivals,” Los Angeles-based Benjie Escobar makes his San Antonio debut with “Aquí No Más,” which showcases his mastery with hand-inked lettering while “repurposing, reimagining, and updating iconic Chicano and Latino characters.” Providing distinct San Antonio counterpoints, “Trust” highlights the boundary-pushing work of printmaker Sabrina Alfaro (who creates work under the telling moniker Xingona Prints) while “Things I Draw at Night” uplifts the skater-inspired aesthetics and pop-culture references of illustrator Gilbert Martinez into a gallery context. In addition to smartly priced merch available from all three artists, the opening reception includes beats from ModSnap Radio DJs, including an aspiring 10-year-old who spins under the alias AXE6.

    2347 Nacogdoches Road, (210) 570-4407, theorycoffeeco.com
    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
