"Fantastic Beasts"

Heather Gauthier
What is a human anyway — but a fantastic beast? AnArte’s upcoming solo exhibition from San Antonio-based artist Heather Gauthier, despite its firm grounding in uncomplicated whimsy and interior-inspired patterns/tropes, seems to beg this question. Her works in this exhibit, as she explains in her artist’s statement, depict “civilized beasts,” like “elephants who love pastries, animals who arrange flowers, and creatures who collect China.” These classic-style portraits are hallmarked by bold and striking colors, precocious personalities, and, above all, pure joy and pleasure in beauty. “In the end,” Gauthier explains, “It’s all about aesthetics, and [she is] satisfied with a painting when it looks beautiful.” From the taste we’ve gotten of this show so far, it seems Gauthier has quite a lot to be satisfied about.

The White Rabbit
Look, most San Antonio music fans have no complaints with the Paper Tiger, a club that consistently brings tons of great touring acts to town. Even so, some who cut their teeth on the St. Mary's Strip still have fond memories of the White Rabbit, the venue that previously occupied the building. It's understandable that folks of a certain age, whether they played the older club or just caught shows there, would have some nostalgia tied up in the Rabbit.

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
