Ruiz-Healy Art opens a solo exhibition of Chuck Ramirez photography
Chuck Ramirez, Words: Moonwalk. Archival pigment ink print on watercolor paper, 15.5 x 21".


SAN ANTONIO, TX.- Ruiz-Healy Art is presenting Chuck in Context, a special exhibition, which honors the significant survey of Chuck Ramirez's works opening at the McNay Art Museum, Chuck Ramirez: All This and Heaven Too. The exhibits will open concurrently with Ruiz-Healy Art's reception held on Friday, September 15, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:00pm.

A percentage of the sales from Chuck in Context will benefit Casa Chuck, a residency program for critics, curators, and writers housed in the artist's former residence. This exhibition is also presented in conjunction with FOTOSEPTIEMBRE USA, an International Photography Festival.

As the exclusive representative for the estate of Chuck Ramirez, Ruiz-Healy Art is proud to keep the artist's memory and archives preserved for future generations. This exhibition, Chuck in Context, focuses on the texted-based works by Ramirez—including the Words series, which has never been shown in its entirety previously.

In addition to photography, Ramirez had a strong background in graphic design and was also involved with the world of contemporary poetry, painting and music. Ramirez was a poet at heart and became a word designer. For Ramirez, the visual impact of text was an important part of his oeuvre and it represented another outlet to his creative spirit.

Words, a series Ramirez produced in 2004, are disparate photographs emblazoned with a single word that the photo illustrates. Over lucha libre figurines appears LIBRE; a masculine face under a platinum wig is emblazoned with QUEEN, a blurred television still of the New England Patriots huddled mid-game reads VIAGRA. Oh yes, there is one of CURATORS too.

Chuck in Context will be on view at Ruiz-Healy Art through October 14, 2017.
