Over the years, the Current has kept close tabs on local artist Albert Alvarez, whose obsessively rendered works depict disaster in myriad forms. A scan through our archives unearthed a blog describing his painting Codename Doomsday as an “apocalyptic retablo” and a review likening the haunting oddities of his show “La Chamba/Dirty Work” to the offspring of the Garbage Pail Kids and Goya’s "The Disasters of War." AnArte goes out on a limb to unveil the Rhode Island School of Design grad’s “Stuck on Nothing,” which cracks open with tequila, wine and music by George and Aaron Prado. Free, 6-8pm Wednesday, AnArte Gallery, 7959 Broadway, (210) 826-5674, anartegallery09.com. —Bryan Rindfuss
