Creative Creatures Grand Opening

Launched in 2014 by married duo Karen Rios (the “multi-genre creator” behind Nouveau Nostalgic) and Eddy Rios (a comic book enthusiast who creates “magic stuff on paper” under the moniker Taco Boy Designs), the always-eclectic, multimedia event series Creative Creatures has taken over numerous venues (Limelight, Faust, The Korova and Brick among them) with lineups blending visual artists with performers, indie bands, DJs, fashionistas and plenty in between. Often drawing inspiration from a specific theme (superstición Mexicana, The Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt, you get the idea), these recurring showcases are designed “to fuse San Antonio's art and music community in a fluid way.” Sure to delight fans who’ve supported the duo’s endeavors over the years, the recently announced grand opening of a Creative Creatures outpost at Blue Star promises to bring their fusionist spirit to a compact space in Building B. Most recently inhabited by Black Moon Gallery, the spot’s latest configuration combines a retail shop and gallery space. “It is a 50/50 split,” Karen explained. “Two white walls will house our monthly gallery exhibits, both group and solo shows, and the two opposite grey walls will house our art retail space.” In addition to showcasing works by the husband-and-wife duo (watercolor, ink and acrylic illustrations and paintings by Eddy, and photography, mixed-media works and collage by Karen), Creative Creatures inauguration as a brick-and-mortar destination brings together stickers, pins, prints, accessories and more from an assortment of artists and vendors (Black Moon Print, Hello Reg, Tattooed Boy, Golden Rose Tattoo, The Wednesdays Art, Bexar Knuckles Apparel, Ink By Moonlight, Gaylunchable and Junk Ship to name a few). First Friday gallery crawlers are invited to “network with fellow creatives, sway to some stellar tunage and enjoy complimentary treats and drinks while they last.”

    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.
