With the confluence of Luminaria and Southtown The Arts District (STAD) Festival, November’s Second Saturday art walk promises to be a creative affair to remember. Bringing a dose of fresh blood to the Freight Gallery & Studios complex, the simply titled, artist-run Southtown Art Gallery opens its doors with “Partners in Art,” a group show uniting 14 emerging artists that gallery co-directors Albert Gonzales and Caroline Adam say aren’t “typically accustomed to working together.”

Bringing together names both familiar (portrait artist Kaldric Deshon Dow and retro-digital collage specialist Acidwinzip among them) and no-so-familiar (including illustrator Gilbert Martinez, tattoo artist Esther Quiara and painter Elias Vieyra), the inaugural outing’s billed as “a celebration of vigilance — and those who take justice into their own hands to change the world.”

$1-$2, Saturday, November 11, 6:30-10:30pm, Southtown Art Gallery, 1913 S. Flores St., Studio 9, (210) 441-0075, facebook.com/southtownartgallery.
