San Antonio-born, NYC-based artist and photographer Wendy Bowman brings her old hometown a thoroughly engrossing look at one of its most vibrant neighborhoods in her Fotoseptiembre exhibition entitled “Southtown.” In the newly created series, Bowman returns home, wearing the hat (and garnishing the lens) of a native and interloper at once. Her focus on the Southtown area, however, produces results that are unlike those likely to be duplicated by just any tourist with a camera. She’s not only a skilled photographer with a keen artistic vision, but she knows this place; its humor, its pain, and its complexities. As such, Bowman brings life to subjects here, through her shooting, processing, and framing, that may be overlooked or deemed unimportant by someone who has never been intimate with the place. Free, 6-8pm Fri, Sept. 16, AnArte Gallery, 7959 Broadway, Suite 404, (210) 826-5674, anartegallery09.com.
