"Lorem Ipsum"

When: Thu., Jan. 14, 6-9 p.m. and Wednesdays-Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through April 24 2016

The writers and graphic designers out there may groan at the sight of “Lorem Ipsum” in print, but in the case of New York-based Cordy Ryman, it’s not “dummy” text but the title of an exhibition that might have something to do with Roman philosopher Cicero. Hailed as “a champion of unabashed visual pleasure,” Ryman works with such non-traditional materials as reclaimed wood, industrial paints, scrap metal, Velcro and Gorilla Glue. One of several shows celebrating Artpace’s 21st birthday, “Lorem Ipsum” opens in tandem with San Antonio artist Chris Sauter’s “Biography Construction Site (Cakes).”
