'Runnin' Down the Road: UTSA Alumni Exhibition'

The lineup for CAM's UTSA alumni exhibition comes as no surprise. But it's a satisfying group; UTSA has produced some of the finest artists working in the city today. And, for once, this agglomeration of artists cannot be put down to some sort of cliquey enterprise — they've got UTSA in common. Maybe it's a chicken-and-egg thing, and as far as that goes, an emblem of the grad school/art-world conundrum. But in any case, "Runnin' Down the Road" highlights a phalanx of the truly gifted, civic and dedicated practitioners and, usually, instructors who've gone on to inform the Alamo colleges. In addition to frequently exhibited mainstays like Nate Cassie, Michele Monseau and Leigh Anne Lester, the group show highlights accomplished yet lesser known artists, including James Smolleck, whose deft manipulation of buried mythology and mathematical exactitude evince classical Islamic art and graphic sci-fi universes.
