'Native Son'
Born in El Paso to a neon sign-maker father, Luis A. Jiménez Jr. found influence in that medium and in the mid-century lowrider culture that grew up with him. He gained international recognition for creating vivid sculptures and drawings that blended kitsch and realism, some playing on controversial stereotypes. The McNay celebrates its recent acquisition of Man on Fire, one of Jiménez’s most celebrated works, with an exhibit of his drawings and prints. $5 (military, seniors, students) $10 (free for members and children under 12), Tue, Wed, Fri 10am-4pm, Thu 10am-9pm (free from 4-9pm), Sat 10am-5pm, Sun noon-5pm, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N New Braunfels, (210) 824-5368, mcnayart.org. Through Jan 19.

'Mariachi Nation'
A noted SA artist inspired by the Chicano art movement, Luis Valderas continues his quest to “connect the collective experience of past and present generations” using his own family as a guide. This site-specific series cheekily places images of Valderas’ father, in full Mariachi garb, in various streetscapes, design motifs, urban settings and famous works by Warhol and Rothko in order to challenge and satirize Latino stereotypes and socio-political structures. Lady Base and 3rd Space galleries, also in the Gallista complex, will have Second Saturday openings as well. Free, reception 6-9pm Sat, Oct 12, 10:30am-5pm Tue-Sat, Gallista Gallery, 1913 S Flores, gallistagallery.com. Through Nov 11.

'Eighteen'
If you’ve visited Linda Pace Foundation before, you may have been enchanted by Eight, a looped video of a young girl determined to save a piece of cake from her outdoor birthday party, abandoned during a thunderstorm. The looping intentionally distorts time and plot. Filmmakers Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler have circled back as well, locating the original actress from Eight, 10 years later and creating another scenario involving her 18th birthday party. The Linda Pace Foundation will premier the resulting work, Eighteen, along with a selection of Hubbard and Birchler’s videos and photos. By appointment only (email visit (at) pacefound.org), 112 W Rische, (210) 226-6663, lindapacefoundation.org.

'Cribs and Crews'
San Antonio native Angela Fox could have a second career waiting for her in pattern design, but it's unlikely she’ll ever completely abandon the brightly attired nomads that populate her drawings and prints. Outfitted in layers of plaids, paisleys, checks and dots, Fox’s curious campers keep warm by neon pink fires or relax on rainbow-colored blankets and occasionally throw a pizza party amongst their psychedelic teepees and tents in bizarre commune-like settings, at once sweet and unsettling. Free, receptions 7-10pm Thu Oct 31 and Fri Nov 1, Hello Studio, Blue Star Arts Complex, 1420 S Alamo, Bldg B, hellostudiosa.com. By appointment through Dec 1.
