Infinite Island presents some eighty works made in the last six years that reflect the region's dynamic mix of cultures, its diasporas, and its socio-political realities, all of which are constantly transforming themselves. The forty-five emerging and established artists, who work both in the Caribbean and abroad, represent multiple perspectives as they explore the complexities of Caribbean history and identity. Including painting, sculpture, photography, prints and drawings, video, and installation, the exhibition is grouped around themes that encompass history, memory, politics, myth, religion, and popular culture.
As the Texas summer barrels down on us, Octavia Art Gallery has announced it will host a pop-up art show about the season, in collaboration with curator Alice Carrington Foultz, at the historic Roosevelt Library in San Antonio. The show is called Summer Solstice and it brings together work from artists represented by Octavia Gallery as well as work by local San Antonio artists. “Each of these works conveys some aspect of light or shade,” said Foultz. “These artists have captured the stillness of hot summer afternoons or the coolness of swimming pools, green golf courses, and forest canopies. Abstractions of blue water also find their way into the mix.”
