What an amazing start for Contemporary Art Month, and we haven’t even gotten through the first week yet! From Gallery Nord, to the Fox Motel, and then down to the 1906 S. Flores complex, it feels like we’ve been everywhere already. But there’s lots more to come. The CAM Kickoff Party will be this Thursday at Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, and Second Saturday in the SoFlo/Lone Star Arts District is sure to be full of surprises. There’s also two fundraising events to choose from on Saturday night: Artist Foundation and the San Antonio Film Festival.

We had the pleasure of chatting with contemporary artist, Andrés Ferrandis in advance of his show, Numinous, at Ruiz-Healy Art in Olmos Park. Ferrandis, in San Antonio for this opening event, hails from Valencia, Spain, and is currently based out of Miami.
Never having been before, I didn’t know what to expect at the McNay Art Museum Print Fair. When the gentleman said to me, “I can’t choose between the Indiana or the Calder,” I was hooked. Yes, we’re speaking of Robert Indiana and Alexander Calder. As it turns out, this is an event San Antonio should be proud to be hosting. It isn’t merely the only event of its kind in Texas, it’s unique to the Southwest.
