EMERGENTE: A Group Show of Emerging, Latin American Artists
September 15 - November 15
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Haus Collective, Artemisa Gallery present
Opening Reception, October 1 and 2
San Antonio, TX - Haus Collective is pleased to present EMERGENTE: A collaborative group exhibition with New York's Artemisa Gallery, on view from September 15 to October 15. The partnership presents a single vision to platform emerging, Latin American artists in Texas through a group show of eight artists featuring works on paper, large-scale paintings and a dedication to Fotoseptiembre.
Haus Collective represents a platform for culture to connect community, a mission energized and recognized by San Antonio's flourish. Co-owners Faith Haddad and Lawson Ellzey have directed four prior exhibitions within their space at the Blue Star Arts Complex, and will celebrate their second "shared table" dinner concept with Artemisa Gallery. Haus Collective was created in February of 2015, growing into a multi-disciplinary effort to support emerging culture, and a graphic design studio to cultivate small business.
Artemisa Gallery was started in 2012 by owners and directors Mariana de Diego Broda and Vanina Waizmann, both natives of Buenos Aires. The core of Artemisa’s program represents an extensive and sophisticated network of contemporary artists from across Latin America. Equally important, Artemisa helps develop the careers of less established, emerging Latin American artists. The New York gallery, located in Chelsea, is a venue from which Diego Broda and Waizmann aim to educate the community about the burgeoning space for contemporary Latin American art. Native San Antonian, Alanna Miller, is the Sales Director at the Chelsea gallery, and has helped curate a vibrant selection from Artemisa’s roster for this exhibition.
The collaboration between Haus Collective and Artemisa Gallery personifies a bigger goal to educate and inspire. A conversation of artworks from Artemisa Contemporary Gallery is their first exhibition in Texas, within a shared space of discovery and recognition at Haus Collective. Conceptual sculpture and fine jewelry from Alejandro Sifuentes’ Equinox Gallery couples the art-show-as-representation, to emphasize a diverse and lively community made possible by such an event. EMERGENTE will be previewed through a Latin American dine in the intimate space of Haus Collective, prepared by local Folc restaurant's Luis Colon. The dinner will take place by invitation on Saturday evening, September 19, where a portion of the proceeds from the evening will support Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum's art education programs. A second public reception will bring the community together again on First Thursday and Friday of October, 1st and 2nd.
Carla Albrecht Gimbatti, Luciana Levinton, Rebeca Mendoza, Martin Palottini, Isabel Peña, Marcela Sinclair, Alejandro Thornton, Matías Waizmann.
Hours: Tuesday – Friday 11 am – 6 pm and by appointment on weekends.
