San Antonio, Texas - Octavia Art Gallery is pleased to announce the second annual pop-up art show in collaboration with curator Alice Carrington Foultz at the historic Roosevelt Library in San Antonio. The show will run for three months, from April 15 through July 7, with an opening reception on Wednesday April 15 from 5 to 8 pm.
The exhibition entitled Gestural Configurations, and curated by Foultz, will explore the work of three artists: Sherry Owens, Kikuo Saito and Regina Scully. Texas artist Owens meticulously builds her unique sculptures using crepe myrtle twigs, constructing densely chaotic nest-like forms that read like open drawings in space. New York-based Japanese artist Kikuo Saito combines rhythmic and expressionistic brushstrokes with vivid, beautiful hues. Similarly, New Orleans artist Regina Scully uses calligraphic and bold strokes to create vibrant, imaginary landscapes. Foultz is thrilled to showcase these artists in her hometown of San Antonio: “I have chosen to exhibit Owens, Saito and Scully together because of their unique ability to engage the viewer with gestural brushwork and dynamic sculpture-making. Their work offers countless opportunities for discovery.”
