"Symbols & Icons" Staff Pick

When: Sat., April 9, 7-10 p.m. 2016
Price: Free
Rendered with everything from ground aluminum and rose petals to wax and tar, Jesus Toro Martinez’s mixed-media paintings might pull visual triggers before any personal or emotional ones. Yet, Martinez — who earned his BFA from the gone-but-not-forgotten San Antonio Art Institute — imbues his richly layered works with references to such universal themes as love, religion, conflict and cultural identity. Possibly nodding with its title to all that lies beneath his abstracted surfaces, Martinez’s “Symbols & Icons” opens in conjunction with Second Saturday in the South Flores/Lone Star Arts District.
