SAMA Celebrates Museum Reach Expansion with New Exhibition of Water-Themed Work

SAN ANTONIO, TX.- In celebration of the opening of the newly expanded Museum Reach of the Riverwalk this May, San Antonio Museum of Art will present Waterflow, an exhibition of recent works by fifteen Texas artists who have been inspired by water.

The exhibition opens on Wednesday, May 13 and will run through Sunday, August 23, 2009.

Organized by David S. Rubin, The Brown Foundation Curator of Contemporary Art, the exhibition features the work of Norman Rene Avila, Andy Benavides, Justin Boyd, Nate Cassie, Rebecca Dietz, Jayne Lawrence, Mark Menjivar, Leslie Raymond, Ansen Seale, Penelope Speier, Laura Varela and Guillermina Zabala, Bettie Ward, Liz Ward, and Liliana Wilson. These artists work in several mediums and take a variety of approaches, with themes centering on the essence of nature, the passage of time, nature as metaphor, and the preservation of the environment.

According to Rubin, “San Antonio is like a “well” of creativity, a womb-shaped city with a river flowing through it. We are fortunate that so many extraordinary artists have sprung from and been nurtured by the well.”

Rubin will also moderate a panel discussion entitled “Water Flows in All Directions” with artists from the exhibition – Justin Boyd, Ansen Seale, Liz Ward and Liliana Wilson – on Tuesday, June 9th, at 6:30 pm.

Rubin has received national recognition for many creative and groundbreaking thematic exhibitions, including It’s Only Rock and Roll: Rock and Roll Currents in Contemporary Art, Birdspace: A Post-Audubon Artists Aviary, Playing with Time, which featured 20 San Antonio artists who use time as an element in their art, and Chocolate: A Photography Exhibition, which documented the work of four conceptual artists who employ chocolate as a resource material in production of their photographs.
