Sure, every Second Saturday features a bunch of art openings, but this January, there are simply too many to jam into a single night.
That means, in addition to Saturday's usually scheduled programming, this month's exhibitions have bled into the rest of the weekend. To make it easy, we've curated a selection of exhibitions worth keeping an eye on from Friday through Sunday.
Felder Gallery and Clamp Light Artist Studios and Gallery kick things off on Friday with two exhibitions that examine tools and technology.
San Antonio artist Rick Kroninger will showcase 14 new drawings of analog objects — from film cameras to typewriters — in "Analog/2020," an homage that reminds us that "looking back is looking forward" (free, 5-7 p.m. Friday, Felder Gallery, 5934 Broadway St., (361) 944-0167, feldergallery.com
). In "Resolution," Rebecca Drolen, Annie May Johnston, Bree Lamb and Rachel Livedalen debut a series of works that address how advances in technology have changed how we create, edit and share images (S. Floresfree, 7-10 p.m. Friday, Clamp Light Artist Studios & Gallery, 1704 Blanco Road, clamplightstudios.com
