Keep San Antonio Lame, an oft-misunderstood slogan and something of a grassroots marketing/events campaign, has been around since 2004. The brainchild of artist and FL!GHT Gallery owner Justin Parr and artist/writer Aaron Forland, has sporadically hosted events and kept itself on our radar via sightings of its T-shirts and stickers (coveted swag always released in limited supply). While it may have been awhile since we last saw an event under the quirky moniker, Parr and Forland thought that this month’s “San Antonio Blows” exhibition at FL!GHT, which will feature some print work from Forland, was the perfect time to revive it. The show, whose name pairs perfectly with the irreverent and gently self-deprecating aesthetic of Keep San Antonio Lame, will feature work for sale from a host of local artisans working with (mostly) glass and wood. Aside from Forland, featured artists/artisans include Adam Smolensky, Sean Thomas Johnston, Jay Massey, Keri Mullen, Mike Torres, Hector Rivera, John Joseph Vanlandingham, Raygun Johns, David Salinas and Glenn Andrews, among others. Following the opening receptions, “San Antonio Blows” remains on view by appointment through December 24.
