"Amor Sin Fronteras"

When: Thu., April 2, 5:30-7:30 p.m. and Mondays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through May 31 2015

Established in 1989, Hank Lee’s San Angel Folk Art is among the oldest anchors of the Blue Star Arts Complex. Although stocked with giftable wares and a whimsical line of guayaberas, Lee’s eclectic emporium chiefly traffics in works crafted by artists – folk, outsider and contemporary – from Latin America, Europe, Africa and beyond. On view through May 31, San Angel’s “Amor Sin Fronteras” serves as both a showcase and Texas début for young Mexico City artist Felix D’Eon. Referencing erotic Japanese woodblock prints from the Edo period, children’s book illustrations and lots more in between, D’Eon’s provocative yet playful gouache paintings hijack vintage sheet music and other ephemera with homosexual fantasies exploring “happy endings and outcomes in Aztec civilization, Revolutionary-era Mexico and the American West.”
