Fall Exhibitions Opening Reception

Continuing its long tradition of displaying high-caliber new art from students and working artists, the Southwest School of Art will host a reception for three concurrent openings this week. A part of her inventive, ongoing project Umeyama Reports, artist Hiromi Stringer’s latest exhibit, entitled “Umeyama Time Teleportation Museum,” is an imaginary museum wherein the achievements of Stringer’s fictional character Shoei Umeyama are documented. In this work which reflects on “language, (mis)communication, and alternative points of view,” this character “experienced time teleportation to the contemporary world in which we live from the Japan of 170 years ago.” Meanwhile, Dana Franfort’s “Works on Paper” explores the limits of language, and the often unwieldy weight of connotation, in paintings featuring words and sayings in various states of distortion. Finally, Mary Holland’s “Tangled Up in Blue” is comprised of beautiful lace cyanotypes, “an alternative photographic printing process that produces a rich Prussian blue print using a photo sensitive solution of iron salts rather than silver salts.”

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.
