"Chuck Is in the House: The late Chuck Ramirez was the heart and soul of the San Antonio art scene. Now he gets a posthumous survey at Octavia Art Gallery, where director Illa Gaunt is a Ramirez expert (through February 25). You'll find a wide range of conceptual photos to see and acquire, from the artist's series of empty candy boxes and his decaying hospital blossoms (both meditations of the AIDS crisis) to images of brooms used by domestic workers, a Whataburger cup and, in the back room, his burst-pinatas series."
