"Back from Berlin"

When: Fridays-Sundays, 12-6 p.m. and Thursdays, 12-8 p.m. Continues through May 10 2015

Opening in tandem with CAM’s official kick-off, the group show “Back from Berlin” brings together the first four San Antonio artists to take part in Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum’s two-year-old Berlin Residency Program. Facilitated by a unique partnership between BSCAM, SA-based German curator/journalist Angelika Jansen and Berlin’s Künstlerhaus Bethanien, the three-month residency provides each visiting artist with studio and living space, exhibition opportunities, access to workshops and studio visits with curators. Although local art scenesters are likely already familiar with the work of inaugural residents Vincent Valdez, Cathy Cunningham-Little, Ricky Armendariz and Karen Mahaffy, Jansen (who also acts as program liaison) notes: “All four artists came back raving about their experiences [and] how they are looking differently at creating art. For them there is a definite before and after Berlin.”

Price: $3-$5
