To say Gravelmouth is just a San Antonio commercial gallery is an understatement with regards to the complexities that this space serves to its communities. In San Antonio, Gravelmouth has become a beacon for the artist-run space. To have a space, create programming, and abide by a mission and vision is an endeavor that professional visual artist, David Vega appeared to do seamlessly. The quality of work, the craftsmanship in the display, and ultimately the ongoing collaborations and diversified networks that David brings to San Antonio is continuously impressive. Street art, like any deemed “non-traditional artwork,” lacks spaces for display, scholarly criticism, and a collector base. With Gravelmouth and Vega’s own experience navigating and trying to find a balance between urban interventions and formal institutions, the selected artists and community are privy to an intersection of holistic knowledge. Gravelmouth is a space that was created by an artist for artists and we have only seen the beginning of what it has to offer.

 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.”

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.

Gravelmouth is happy to host a solo exhibition of Carlos Don Juan. Carlos Has earned his MFA from UTSA with a BFA from UT Arlington.This Dallas Based artist has gained attention across the United States with a strong foothold in Texas. Carlos has recently been featured in this months Juxtapoz Magazine. This will be an exciting event filled with art, music and entertainment. Please Visit Carlos Don Juans website for more information on the artist.http://carlosdonjuan.com/#Artist Statement: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.
