Sounds and visions of the Texas landscape meet an inventive escape from Earth in three new exhibitions at the Southwest School of Art. For his solo show “Days and Days,” local artist/educator/DJ Justin Boyd collected found objects, images, and sounds along the banks of the San Antonio River to explore the “flux of life.” Known for works that employ bottle caps and other repurposed items, artist Anita Valencia’s “Sun She Rise, Sun She Set, and You Ain’t Seen Texas Yet,” hints at the vastness of the Lone Star State with a swirling tornado, butterflies, cacti, and tumbleweeds rendered in recycled materials. Across Navarro in the Ursuline Hall Gallery, Juan de Dios Mora takes a page from the Mayan calendar with “Laters,” a series of prints depicting Mexican-American apocalypse survivors ascending creatively to the next level. Free; 5-8pm Thu, Dec 6; Southwest School of Art, 300 Augusta, (210) 224-1848, swschool.org. Check out our full online calendar of upcoming events here: calendar.sacurrent.com.
