Fall Exhibitions at Southwest School of Art

Although the first official day of fall isn’t until September 22, many are raring to shrug off a scorching summer slump and welcome a slightly more bearable season. While some of fall’s big cultural highlights won’t be unveiled until September or October, the Southwest School of Art is ready to roll out a trio of exhibitions populated by biomorphic images, “abstracted cartographies of imagined terrains” and even the 1980s-era collectible atrocities known as the Garbage Pail Kids. Approaching abstraction from three distinct points of departure, the imaginatively titled group exhibition “We’re Not Even Supposed to Be Here” combines the map-like mysteries of widely exhibited Philadelphia-based artist Victoria Burge, the playfully surreal prints of Texas State University professor Jeffrey Dell and the oddly scientific output of Brooklyn-based woodblock printer and collage artist Takuji Hamanaka. The innovative applications of abstraction carry over into “Ideal Fadez,” an exhibition of digitally informed paintings by Austin-based Joan Mitchell Foundation award winner Jonathan Faber. Sure to appeal to nerds, collectors and contemporary art fans alike, Brooklyn-based West Texas native Sylvanus Shaw’s solo show “Fiat” comprises packaged, small-scale drawings inspired by both “the fiat currencies of banking reserves and the speculative excitement that emanates from an un-opened pack of collectible cards.”

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
