MBAW welcomes you to the Grand Opening of our brand new office and art gallery, Sat. Oct. 5th from 6-9pm!
We are honored to announce our inaugural Opening Reception, On the Way to Work, celebrating our long-awaited expansion into our first workspace and starring San Antonio sensation, Rex Hausmann! Mr. Hausmann exhibits nationally and internationally, is the Gallery and Arts Program Director of Hausmann Millworks: a Creative Community in San Antonio, Texas, and the Programs Director of the San Antonio Museum of Art Contemporary Art Committee. He will be showing some of his latest work, including skillful pen and ink drawings, wild paintings, and curious performance art involving a typewriter. Complete with wine, light hors d'oeuvres, and live music, this will certainly be a night to remember! Please join us On the Way to Work, as we toast to the success of MBAW’s first office space!
Rex's Artist Statement:
“My work is a collision of artifacts and events initiated by the people I meet, the things I read and the places traveled... I search for a path for the “every day man” to access the wonderfully complex history & context of visual art. Through bright colors and “creative spelling” the viewer is taken into a world of personal narrative. Writings (based on paintings) form story telling that people can read & enjoy. The hope is to refine a visual & written language that anyone can access, no matter what there age, experience or background. Art is as complex as the living of life itself. At times it is simple, and at other times very murky... I paint my life, and in this process I hope you can see a bit of yours too!”
