In case you, Foodie, can’t tear yourself away from SA’s mushrooming wining/dining options, Contemporary Art Month is coming to you, and ... check it ... you’re already late for the rendezvous! Café Paladar hosted a reception July 7 featuring new works on paper by spiral-mad artist Nemo, but you can always find a little Nemo at San Pedro Springs Gallery (sanpedrospringsgallery.com), which doubles as a nice watering hole and snack joint 5-10pm Friday, 6-10pm Saturday, and 2-6pm Sunday. Watch for August 8 “grand opening” details.
Silo Elevated Cuisine’s popular ’09 bar (1133 Austin Highway) is showing off its ’hood with a show by Michael Saul and Jane Digby, opening with a reception 6:30-8pm July 10. Exhibit With a Z takes over theARTCASES at SoHo Wine & Martini Bar (214 W. Crockett), beginning with a cocktail reception 8pm-midnight July 11. The show is presented by Franco Mondini-Ruiz and David Shelton and features Sala Diaz founder Alejandro Diaz, Hector Ruiz, and emerging art star Kristy Perez.
If you’re more SoFlo than SoHo, travel north to The Cove (thecove.us) Friday for a Hometown Artists’ Rodeo reunion (one of two this month), starring Rodeo Ho Ho, Hills Snyder, Gary Sweeney, and more.
