A month after "FRONTEXTOS" opened at the Southwest School of Art, Quintanilla returns to the campus for an artist talk about the exhibition. Originally conceived as a way to push him to write a poem in Spanish each day, "FRONTEXTOS" began to take shape as elements of visual art crept into his writing practice. The final series of drawings integrates abstract and representational illustration with snippets of words.
"Octavio Quintanilla: FRONTEXTOS" is on view 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sundays through December 29.
Free, 6 p.m. Monday, September 30, Southwest School of Art, 300 Augusta St., (210) 200-8200, swschool.org
