Here is a recap of the rest of day 1 – Surface Design Association Conference tour day. See the rest of the day here. Conference attendees were bused around the city to a number of galleries to view SDA sponsored exhibitions. What a day.
Gallery Nord – a great San Antonio gallery space, featured several artist exhibits:
Nathalie Miebach, “Weathered Waters” – a large-scale wall piece that looks at the ecological interactions between weather systems and marine environments in the Gulf of Main.
Eun-Kyung Suh – “Embedded Memory”
Kathryn Clark – “Foreclosure Quilts”
Maria Shell – “Color Grids”
We saw work by Kim Eichler-Messmer – “Sense of Place”, and Janet Lasher – “Conscription”.
At the UTSA Downtown Gallery, we viewed the Students’ Show. Inspiring variety. Here’s a small sampling:
Last but certainly not least, we viewed to the Members’ Show at the SAY SI Gallery. The Surface Design Association is made up of an amazing group of talented people, and seeing a cross-section of their work was an absolute treat! It was difficult chosing which photos to share.
After seeing all those amazing shows we were dropped off at the hotel – exhausted and invigorated. We enjoyed a dinner buffet reception by the pool, the opening of an outstanding vendor fair and a dessert buffet. Not bad for the first official day of the conference!
