Summer Solstice

San Antonio, Texas

May 13 - August 13, 2014

Octavia Art Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition in collaboration with curator Alice Carrington Foultz at the historic Roosevelt Library in San Antonio.

The exhibition, entitled Summer Solstice and curated by Foultz, combines works of artists represented by Octavia Art Gallery, as well as several local San Antonio artists. Foultz’s inspiration for the show was the scents, sounds, intensity of light and contrasting temperatures experienced during the summer months: “Each of these works conveys some aspect of light or shade. These artists have captured the stillness of a hot summer afternoon or the coolness of swimming pools, green golf courses, and forest canopies. Abstractions of blue water also find their way into the mix.

The show will feature paintings and sculptures by Wayne Amedee, Waddy Armstrong, Jerry Cabrera, Rudy Choperena, Caio Fonseca, Meghan Gerety, Alex Hernandez Dueñas, Martha Hughes, Jorge Pardo, Regina Scully and Eliza Thomas.

Location: 311 Roosevelt Avenue, San Antonio, Texas 78210
Opening Night: Tuesday, May 13, from 5:30pm – 8:30pm.

About Octavia Art Gallery

Octavia Art Gallery recently announced the opening of a satellite office and gallery space in Houston, Texas. Octavia, which was established in New Orleans in 2008, showcases the work of international emerging and established contemporary artists along with modern masters, emphasizing the preservation and conservation of unique and authentic artistic cultures worldwide.

The new location in Houston is an exciting new chapter for Octavia. Gallery founder Pamela Bryan hopes the second location will “create a platform for our represented artists in Texas, but also establish and develop relationships with emerging artists in Houston and surrounding cities such as Austin, San Antonio, Dallas and Marfa.”
