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.”

Zach Dorn and Murphi Cook are Miniature Curiosa, a niche operation that produces fast-paced “live-action comic books” incorporating low-fi projection technology, non-linear storytelling, and Victorian toy theater. In keeping with its mission to explore “the underbelly of childhood nostalgia with the disappointed eyeballs of adulthood,” the tiny troupe’s touring show Tonight! a Clown Will Travel Time follows Albert Billows, a clown/archivist/amateur scientist who builds a time machine to escape a from a present complicated by an F.B.I. investigation, a fascination with a mysterious woman from another century, and haunting memories of “a bloodthirsty execution of a law-breaking pachyderm.” Co-hosted by S.M.A.R.T. and Gravelmouth, Miniature Curiosa’s only Texas stop on its North American tour includes two full Friday evening shows and a five-minute excerpt from Five Excruciatingly Ordinary Toy Theater Shows on rotation during Second Saturday in the Lone Star Arts District.

Gravelmouth is proud to present a solo exhibit of San Antonio legend, “Soup”. Winning the top spot in this years “Best of” San Antonio edition of The Current, Soup was voted best in two categories, “Best Graffiti Artist” and all around “Best Artist”. Mastering the craft of aerosol paint, Soup takes a vicious spin on a tool usually associated with vandalism, and creates visually striking photo realistic portraits using dark monochromatic colors. This show is going to be a great one, if you dont believe me, ask just about anyone in the city, Im sure they know all about him.
Opening is from 7-10pm Music and refreshments will be provided.

My studio work deals with a variety of ideas ranging from religion, immigration, politics, family, graffiti and different cultural rituals. My paintings currently deal with the idea of immigrants and how people in America see them. I was born in Mexico, but my parents brought me to this country at the age of three. Growing up not knowing English and fearing deportation created a lot anxiety for me as a kid. Now as an adult American Citizen, I am comparing my experiences to those immigrants that live in this country. A lot fears and sense of hate are still very prevalent. I feel that immigrants are sometimes seen as monsters or aliens by some of today’s society and news media. My work depicts the idea of how I think people see me and other people from other countries. How we are different because of where we were born, even though we look the same. The figures become hybrid creatures through the mixture of animal features, colors, patterns, textures and shapes inspired by many cultures.
