Numinous (adj.) describing an experience that makes you fearful yet excited and fascinated, awed yet attracted. The powerful, personal feeling of being overwhelmed and truly inspired.
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.
When I moved to San Antonio a little over a year ago, the city-wide event that I was most excited about being able to immerse myself in was Contemporary Art Month. So, it is with a genuine sense of excitement that Page and I announce our partnership with CAM as a Media Sponsor. This is the first of many CAM posts you will see in the coming months. We hope to be your go-to source for all things CAM, so get ready.
“Color Meditation” — at Cinnabar Gallery through February 8th — was a great way to kick-off 2014. We had spent the first week of the new year lying low after the holidays, the inertia of being still in our warm cocoon so satisfying. We had missed the December opening in the hubbub of the season, so Susan’s invitation to come take a look at the latest show was a welcome breath of fresh air.
Got an FB invite to attend a pop-up art event on Wednesday evening, so we went. Given the fluid nature of Facebook, it is amazing that we saw the notice at all. And it’s a good thing that we did, because it was our first and last opportunity to see this collection of work.
How does Susan Oliver Heard top her award-winning, smash grand opening with renowned photographer George Krause?

It was great to have the Lila Cockrell Theater essentially to ourselves on Wednesday night for the press preview dress rehearsal of Ballet San Antonio’s Cinderella. Well…Page and I, and aside from company personnel and support, a lovely group of children enjoying the ballet from The Boys and Girls Club of San Antonio. Detail: Anyone who knows me, knows that I do not pay children gratuitous compliments. These kids were very well behaved!
