“Chicana Feelings” & “Entre Orillas”

For an artist who says she has trouble expressing her feelings, Lady Base Gallery owner Sarah Castillo isn’t convincing anyone. She’s experimented with photography, textiles and written word, among other mediums, and is consistently finding new ways to share her experiences and culture. In her upcoming show “Chicana Feelings,” a visual component to her thesis “Art as an Embodied Practice: Artistic Expression, Conocimiento, and Identity Formation,” Castillo allows us to step into her world of reclamation, survival and self-making identity. With a diverse body of work that includes paintings, video, photography, mixed media, textiles and a zine, “Chicana Feelings” is Castillo’s way of crossing the bridges of intersectionality that have brought pain and trauma to her life. A reflection of the last 10 years, during which she’s faced abuse, issues of addiction and mental health, “Chicana Feelings” is Castillo’s continually evolving story of growth and self-healing. As a 2016 National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC) grant recipient, Castillo has seized the opportunity to explore social spaces, themes of identity and the notion of not belonging. Teaming up with fellow NALAC grant recipients Arlene Mejorado and Adriana Monsalve, who will present a photography exhibition entitled “Entre Orillas,” the three artists will converge at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center as the culmination of their yearlong grant.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
