I'm happy to announce that my work can now be purchased at Mockingbird Handprints. They are located in the Blue Star Art Complex in the Southtown neighborhood of San Antonio. The shop is owned by artists Jane Bishop and Paula Cox so it features much of their own artwork as well as the work of other local artists. It definitely has a funky, colorful, and eclectic vibe. You can buy Jane's hand-decorated fabrics, wallpapers and furniture, Paula's printmaking art, and the works of artists who work in ceramics, photography, jewelry, painting, and now encaustic! It's a great place to buy local and handmade art.
The whole complex is such a great place to spend an afternoon. You can visit the Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, grab a beer at the Blue Star Brewing Company, eat dinner at Stella Public House, get a cup of coffee at Halcyon, and some gelato at A La Mode Gelato - and these are just a few of the offerings.
And if that's not enough to get you down there, there's always First Friday. First Friday is a FREE event showcasing the art community of San Antonio that takes place on the first Friday of each month. It takes place with the Blue Star Arts Complex on one end then leading up S. Alamo with spill off into the side streets. The galleries, restaurants, bars and shops open their doors and the crowd enjoys culture, music, food and drinks. There are usually live bands, poetry readings and other fun activities…some in specific buildings and others on the streets and street corners. First Friday is a great monthly event…and it kicks off at 5pm TONIGHT!
