"Lost, Found, and Reconstructed"

Transformation can take place on a number of planes: cultural, social, personal and physical. In this new collaborative, installation-based exhibit, local artists Ashley Mireles and Jose Villalobos used physical transformation to explore the socio-cultural changes in how masculinity and femininity are viewed and policed – all through the lens of the artists’ own unique cultural experiences and symbolic palettes. Highlighting “the transformative outcome of their artistic practices,” the exhibit is comprised of “150 sheets of handmade paper [that] make up a 200-foot stream reminiscent of papel picado stitched together with men’s and women’s garments.” The handmade paper, because no detail is to be considered unimportant here, is made from “the grinding of nopales and books, including Pink Think: Becoming a Woman in Many Uneasy Lessons, Always by My Side: A Father’s Grace and a Sports Journey Unlike Any Other…, and Webster’s Spanish-English Dictionary.” If you are looking for artists working at the cutting edge, seeing deep into our most important issues and coming up with new artistic processes at the same time, this is a can’t-miss show. Following the opening reception, "Lost, Found, and Reconstructed" remains on view by appointment through November 2. On October 20, Mireles and Villalobos will lead a hands-on paper-making workshop at La Printería (noon-2pm at 1103B S. Presa St.).

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
