Opening: John Dalton Atkins: Down Home

Presa House

May 4, 2018 6:00 pm - May 4, 2018 11:00 pm

An exhibition featuring works by UTSA MFA candidate John Dalton Atkins. “Down Home is an expansive installation of all new artworks inspired by the unconventional yet practical culture of blue collar folks and the eccentric places they inhabit. Utilizing found objects, discarded materials, wood, steel, and paint, Down Home runs the gamut from large scale kinetic artworks to more intimate found object sculptures and paintings. Although inspired by a global community of workers, makers, fixers, and backyard philosophers, Atkins’ work is a reflection of his life and experiences in the south, namely his home and family in New Orleans, Louisiana and his new life in San Antonio, Texas.”
