With Fotoseptiembre filling SA’s galleries and art spaces with photography in all flavors, Blue Star Contemporary trains its lens on an older form of expression through a first-time collaboration with The Drawing Center. Founded in ‘70s-era SoHo by curator Martha Beck, the New York City institution celebrates drawing as “primary, dynamic, and relevant to contemporary culture, the future of art, and creative thought.” Inspired by a two-year program that encourages artists to “find new approaches for contextualizing and exhibiting their work,” BSCAM’s “Narrative Axis” brings together eight of The Drawing Center’s selected artists, including SA’s own Joey Fauerso, who heads the drawing program at Texas State University and is cited as a “major force behind this collaboration.” Opening in tandem with New York-based sculptor Jeffrey Brosk’s solo show “Territory” and the Mosaic Student Artist Program’s sci-fi-inspired “Xeno,” the exhibition invites creative participation via a pop-up “Drawing Lab” complete with alternative materials and artist-led activities.

Price: $3-$5 (free on First Thursday and First Friday)
