Presa House Gallery will present a new solo exhibition of works by San Antonio-based artist Nick Hay. "Bad Guys & Ghosts" is Hay's first solo exhibition in five years and features 60 new mixed-media paintings. The opening reception will feature a live outdoor performance by Austin experimental synth-pop trio Hey Cowboy!.

Hay is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in San Antonio, where he is the Lead Preparator & Collections Specialist at the San Antonio Museum of Art. With "Bad Guys & Ghosts," Hay is exhibiting a body of work developed on the periphery of his studio practice. From a variety of materials, including shells and leaves found on routine visits to local rivers to linen and wood scraps saved from work projects, Hay incorporates materials that further highlight the casual and experimental methods of his art-making process.

Utilizing found materials in conjunction with traditional artist media, he injects small amounts of autobiography into an approach that is otherwise concerned with larger overarching narratives from human existence. The faces become records of a life lived with art-making as a constant and essential background task.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through August 27.
