Gravelmouth is happy to host a return visit of Miniature Curiosa for a one night event that is not to be missed! Miniature Curiosa first made it appearance last year to a delighted crowd with their performance “Tonight a Clown Will Travel Time”. I dont know what to tell you other than, This is a spectacle that cannot be put into words, and is something you must experience for yourself to truly appreciate the magic that is Miniature Curiosa.
“A Workshop Performance of An Excruciatingly Ordinary Toy Theater Show Presented by Miniature Curiosa and Gravelmouth Friday, August 22nd, 8pm to 9pm $5 Suggested Donation. An old man dreams about a missing sweatshirt, a three foot ghost plagues an eight-year-old boy’s fragile psyche, and an opera-singing landlord refuses to return a security deposit. These stories and more will explode onto the stage through miniature dioramas, digital cameras, and paper puppets. This is an in-progress performance. Suggestions and feedback will be welcome after the show.”
Please join us for this special event. Music and drinks will be provided before and after the show.

We here at Gravelmouth are going to take it back a bit with this large scale work done artist Shek Vega and Nik Soupe during March of 2014 for Contemporary Art Month San Antonio on the San Antonio Current building, located on St Marys and Dallas st in downtown SA.
This July Artist Shek Vega stepped out from behind the Gravelmouth scenes and into the spotlight in a his first solo show in Gravelmouth, since the artist opened the doors in 2011. His bright vibrant color pallet and wild line movement distracts the viewer and makes light of subjects that otherwise carry dark personal undertones.
In this series of work, Artist Shek Vega revisits art pieces of his past, confronting them and learning to let go by boldly changing them for the better, or for the worse.
“As I go through my artwork from years past I noticed each one has a period of my life locked in them, weather it was a feeling of loneliness, anger, or depression, (some of the work had a noticeable negative sentiment during this period.) I remember everything I was feeling when I painted them, When I look at them now I can still feel all of the hurt that was inside of them, by changing it, I am forced to confront those emotions and rework them for the better, physically changing the painting, and mentally changing my way of viewing the work. I am willing to let go by making the bold move to change them permanently, recognizing that nothing last forever, not the pieces, nor the moments locked in them.”

Gravelmouth Gallery is celebrating its first exhibition of the year with the renowned Dallas collective, The Sour Grapes Crew! This is the group’s first showcase in San Antonio, and is the return of New American Paintings’ Artist of the Year, Carlos Donjuan, to Gravelmouth. This high voltage survey of over thirty of the Crew’s 2D and 3D works is a colorful dialogue surrounding the definitions and creations of identity. Each member’s distinct strengths come together in a unique and cohesive display of creatures and shapes that simultaneously showcases each individual’s style. This exhibition features the works of SG artists:
The Sour Grapes Crew has been making major moves across Texas and abroad. Artworks created by this Oak Cliff-based group have been showcased at Scope Miami, Dallas Contemporary, and Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea in Milan to just name a few. Their artwork has graced the pages of publications such as Juxtapoz Magazine, Hi-Fructose Magazine, and New American Paintings, and their extensive and often community-based mural work can be seen throughout Texas.
Gravelmouth kicked off our 2014 year with Shoot Yourself, an interactive event that allows the viewer to become part of the artwork and shoot the ultimate selfie, in a world where looking good in front of an anonymous audience never meant so much. Artist Louie Chavez, Angela Fox, Sixto-Juan Zavala, Nik Soupe, and Shek Vega create large scale works for a night of fashion, photos, music and fun.

This Second Saturday November 9, Gravelmouth is excited to present Dallas artist Patricia Rodriguez in her first San Antonio solo exhibit “SUPERNATURAL” We first met Rodriguez in Dallas as a featured artist in the Red Bull Curates exhibition. Standing out among the 40 showcase artist we were honored to form a relationship with the artist and her beautiful work.
Patricia Rodriguez’s complex and colorful paintings pulse with elegant organic forms including roots, stems, and the flora and fauna of a dreamlike natural world. Rodriguez finds inspiration in the colorful sand mandalas made by Tibetan monks, demonstrating the interconnectedness and impermanence of life. Each piece serves as a means of meditation. No work is ever preconceived and is impulsively created and spontaneously designed.
She currently works as a freelance artist, muralist, graphic designer and an arts and culture advocate in Dallas, Texas. Exhibiting in various galleries and venues across Dallas, Rodriguez’s art and community work has gained her recognition in the Dallas Morning News, Composite Arts Magazine, The Observer, QUICK DFW, Oak Cliff People, Good Morning Texas, and CBS News. Upcoming projects include a collaborative show at the Kirk Hopper Gallery with graffiti artist SONER set for 2014. She is currently competing for a spot at SCOPE Miami via the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series.
“The subtext in my personal work, beyond color experimentation, is an appreciation of Nature and really looking at the ways we are connected to Nature right down to the tiny minutiae of life.”
