'San Antonio Painters' at Blue Star Contemporary

Samuel Velasquez, "Luckiest Charm", acrylic on canvas, 30"x40"


After more than a few minutes circumnavigating the room, and still finding my socks defiantly on, I finally saw the show — not as a collection of paintings, but as an odd group of artists. Yes, the work is of uneven quality, but I found myself wondering what each artist had done in the past, and looking for the third and fourth time at particular works, wondering how they might change this or that in the future. This isn't a "best of" exhibition, or a proper survey show (where's the political art?), but it can — if you are patient — lead the viewer to wonder who the artist is and why they paint. That's a gift better than giving the art scene what it wants.
