"Caras III"

When: Fri., Sept. 16, 6-9 p.m. and Mondays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Oct. 14 2016

The cara (Spanish for face) is a strange thing. Capable of telling a person’s entire life story, or of obscuring it, of revealing true feelings, or of disguising/altering them, the face is the initial brand by which we come to associate the substance of a person with their form. Considering this truism in depth, and boasting portraiture work by more than 20 local photo artists — Rolando Briseño, Melanie Rush Davis, Trish Simonite and Ramin Samandari among them — “Caras III” is an extension of the “Nuestras Caras” and “Caras II” projects that began as community collaborations with the San Antonio Museum of Art’s “Retratos” exhibition back in 2006.
