Presa House presents "A Todas Horas" opening reception
Presa House will present South Texas-based artists, Monica Lugo and Sam Rawls, debuting solo and collaborative artwork for the first time in San Antonio.
"A Todas Horas" (At All Hours) combines the unique visual styles of Lugo and Rawls, forming a visual union through remote collaboration to explore color, organic forms, the female body, pattern, and typography. The exhibition showcases illustrated vignettes that aim to reflect, celebrate, vent, and validate shared experiences, disadvantages, and emotions amongst women and mothers shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The work focuses on concepts of adaptation, balance, and the artist's duality of parenting and art-making through the limitations of lockdown. The collection expresses intimate fragments of everyday life often neglected or silenced, moments of solitude and companionship, triumphs and defeats, certainty and confusion, fear and effort, and incessant thoughts that roam in the conscious and subconscious mind.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through January 29.
