Barbara Felix is a San Antonio native and contemporary figurative artist. In her March exhibition, The Glorious Way She Moves, interpretive portraits illustrate the exuberance and individuality of her subjects. Felix’s process is to film her subjects dancing, and then express that movement through overlapping portraits.
A Houston native now based in San Antonio, Texas, Raul Rene Gonzalez is a multidisciplinary artist who creates paintings, drawings, sculptures, clothing, murals, installations, live and recorded dance and other performance-based work.

Each work is either a self portrait of Gonzalez with his daughters, or a portrait of other San Antonio artists with their children.
