Gravelmouth Gallery and El Gallista ~ San Antonio

Taking the road less traveled on a Saturday afternoon, I wandered down South Flores Street in “Southtown” San Antonio, to discover Gravelmouth

This is actually part of a complex called 1906.

"We are a collective group of artists, design professionals, fabricators, professional framers and creative problem solvers."

1906 includes Gavelmouth Artist Space as well as a number of other studios and Benavides Picture Framing.

I learned this area of San Antonio is called the, "Lone Star Art District," and it has a Facebook page (follow the link). Expect exciting new developments here in the months and years ahead …

Despite being “down” for the installation of new exhibitions, they allowed me explore the studios and gallery spaces behind the scenes (thank you).

The front tire of the gigantic motorcycle above (“parked” outside the complex), is actually as tall as I am, which is about five and a half feet.

I also ventured across the street to El Gallista Gallery and visited with Joe Lopez.

Joe is pictured above showing me a few of his beautiful watercolors. He was kind enough to give me a tour of the entire building and the art studios found at El Gallista as well. In my opinion, Joe should be commissioned to create tiles based on his watercolors. His images of local neighborhood scenes are charming and very lovely.

One of my more popular Tumblrs features a reproduction of a painting by Ricardo de la O, which I acquired from Joe while visiting El Gallista. I wish I could purchase the original, as I adore this work!

Ya know… I didn’t get any finished shots of the side wall??! Hmmm… @gravelmouthgallery fat capping away his lungs to a tie dyed paradise!! #luminara2014 collaboration with @gravelmouthgallery @artista_montoya and me :) of @adrianalima and #monicabellucci #graffitiart #murals #urbanart thank you @d1egobernal and #district1 #cancontrol #tpyurban #montanablack #montanacans #montanacans_usa #luminaria #gravelmouth #LosOtros #adianalima #streetart #graffiti #spraypaint #thelawscrew #awfsetcollective #soupisms #souplaws

Gravelmouth tries something new this Contemporary Art Month by showcasing some of the latest visionaries Interstate 35 has to offer. These artist have taken the responsibility upon themselves, to move their murals to the next level, modernizing their respected cities landscapes with colossal unconventional pieces. Muralist from the cities of Dallas, Austin, and right here in San Antonio gather together for the evening, and bring their large scale works “Out Of The Elements” and into the gallery.

Gravelmouth is excited to be hosting:

The Sour Grapes Crew (Dallas, TX)
Dang aka Josh Row (Austin, TX)
Los Otros (San Antonio, TX)

"I believe this type of artist has always been "out of their element", against the grain, and never ready to conform to conventional practices. Their influences come "Out of the Elements" of competitive Hip-Hop culture where active street artist strive to be original, stylized, and bigger and badder than the next. With that system embedded into their roots as they now participate the fine arts scene, its only natural that they carry this ambition with them as they create these massive giants."
