  • Maybe It Was All A Dream, Installation by Blue Star Contemporary Exhibitions Manager Jack McGilvray

“I present the observer with a non-linear photographic narrative—one ungrounded, lost in space and time. These images are an invitation to step into a dream. Can you recall a period in your life that no longer seems real, not just because of a temporal distance, but a chasm of trauma that your mind cannot cross, as if the former you entered and emerged a stranger? As time passes, that past seems out of reach. In contrast, the imagined and found feel like truths rising to the surface, the realest things in a dream-like present. You begin looking everywhere for clues.

This body of work is about the tide between pain and the sublime. Have you ever felt lost in the haze of another world and looked back at the world you left behind? Sometimes those worlds feel at opposite ends of a galaxy. At other times, the reconciliation of your pre and post-chasm self seems to rely only on finding the right clues.”

  • The Mobile Mill + Western Drive Papermaking and Scent Workshop

This two-hour workshop located at Guenther’s Upper Mill in hand papermaking includes live demonstrations in hollander-beating (pulp-making from recyclable fibers) and hands-on instruction in western style sheet-pulling using traditional wooded mould-and-deckle sets. Working with portable studio equipment via a push-cart transported by truck, The Mobile Mill travels to San Antonio for Contemporary Art Month, setting up at Guenther's Upper Mill in King William District. 

The workshop collaborates with artist Kellen Walker’s Western Drive perfume series, planned to forage forest materials in North Texas, specifically the location where Walker’s performance and perfumes of Western Drive originated, to be made into handmade paper. The paper will end up as perfume blotter strips for the Western Drive line, and for a limited-edition, scented artist book.

All tools and materials are provided by The Mobile Mill.

  • All The Best Parts, MFA Brittany Ham UTSA

Oil Paint, Watercolor Monoprint, Fabric Appliqué

"I rely on this process of amalgamation to combine body parts until they seem to lose their sense of human form all together. Once simplified into abstracted shapes, I begin to explore what the best parts of man have to offer."
