"Traces," "Head S P A C E" and "Cultura"

Presa House Gallery opens a trio of solo shows connected by diverse photographic practices and the documentation of personal experiences and expressions. A multidisciplinary artist who was born in Monterrey, Mexico, and is currently pursuing her MFA in New York City, Tere Garcia brings photographic slides and a carousel projector into a sculptural realm via “Traces,” an installation that simultaneously exposes and obscures intimate images of performances and the artist in the realm of her studio. A mixed-media San Antonio artist whose work “largely focuses on the exploration of topical and topographical histories of identity, culture and spaces,” Xavier Gilmore also turns to analog processes for “Head S P A C E,” a series of autobiographical and experimental photographs (mostly captured with a 35-millimeter camera) paired with “reflections and reactions, which come in the form of paintings, drawings and collages.” In his artist statement, Gilmore describes this new body of work as an “opening up” since it exposes aspects of his life that are “usually only seen by friends and family.” And finally in “Culturas,” Houston-based artist and curator Maureen Penders trains her lens on “material culture” as a means to explore Central American identity and the visual vocabulary of her native El Salvador. Following the opening reception, "Traces," "Head S P A C E" and "Cultura" remain on view by appointment through September 29.

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
