The monthly festivities have slowly ramped back up at Blue Star Arts Complex, and things are just about back in full swing as we enter July.
While most events in the Southtown art walk generally begin around 7 p.m., gallery hours may vary, so we recommend a quick glance at each venue's website or social media before plotting out your itinerary.
Blue Star stalwart FL!GHT Gallery is digging into its archives for "Ancient History," which will feature a selection of pieces drawn from the gallery's flat file (112R Blue Star, facebook.com/flightSA).
A few doors down, Brick will feature artist Carlos Perez in the solo exhibition "Home," which explores "the connections made from real-life experiences and how they manifest themselves internally" (108 Blue Star, facebook.com/BrickatBlueStar).

- Connie Chapa's "Not For Children" will be featured at Not For You Gallery in the Upstairs Studios at Blue Star.
Akin to FL!GHT, Híjole SA is dipping into its archives for "Post-Apocalyptic." Be on the lookout for a possible appearance by building-leveling blockbuster monsters Godzilla and King Kong (1420 S. Alamo #205, facebook.com/hijolesa).
If Friday isn't enough for you, Presa House Gallery's Saturday exhibition opening keeps the festivities running. "I Would Have Killed to Seen It," which serves as both a hello and a goodbye, showcases six new large-scale oil paintings by John Guzman, who will soon be leaving San Antonio for a yearlong studio fellowship in New Haven, Connecticut (725 S. Presa, presahouse.com).
