Hey y’all! This blog entry has been in the works for quite sometime, but I'm happy to finally share. I hope y'all enjoy!
This year has been pretty exciting for me so far. As an Artist I try to stay active. I submit work to galleries and I’ve been part of several group exhibitions, but I had yet to have my first solo show. A solo exhibition had always been one of my goals as an Artist and I’m proud to say that I have achieved that goal.
On February 13th I had my first Solo Exhibition at Provenance Gallery in San Antonio. The opening took place during 2nd Saturday and was on display for the duration of a month. The show titled Spectrum, composed of seven images all captured in the city of San Antonio.
Every image stood out with the vibrancy of the city. Drawing the viewers attention to minimalistic compositions within each frame. By exposing subtle details of specific places. I left enough information that made it possible for my audience to make connections. The focus behind my work has always been to encourage people to view the world around them.
Being my first Solo exhibition I didn't know what to expect, nervous and excited at the same time, but I made it. The show opened at seven and people began to stop by. It was good to see people dive into my images and begin to make those connections with the places. Places that many have driven by but had never paid close attention to. I was asked questions and even given some critique which was really nice! As an Artist I’m always in need for feedback. As I look back now I am beyond happy with the whole experience and look forward to having more shows. I learned a lot from this experience and will continue to build on my career as an Artist.
I’d like to thank everyone that was able to make it from Austin to the show. The wonderful people of San Antonio that were super welcoming and encouraging. Stephanie Torres for granting me the opportunity to show at her gallery. Huge thank you to my family for their continued support and my partner Vickie for always believing in me.
