SA Artist Spotlight: Jeff Wheeler's Prolific Output Defies Boundaries of Genre and Medium

Prolific artist and curator Jeff Wheeler hasn't let quarantine slow him down. In addition to the veritable smorgasbord of work he already has on hand, Wheeler is producing on an ongoing series of works commemorating Texans who have died each day during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

Though times are bad right now, Wheeler still looks forward to a brighter future — he is already working with musicians and artists including Erik Sanden, Christie Blizard and Half Japanese's Jad Fair to put together amazing performances and exhibition openings that will take place at his gallery SPACE C7 once the pandemic is behind us.

Wheeler is donating 30% of all sales to the San Antonio Food Bank.
