Story Time with Artist Raul Gonzalez

Enjoy contemporary art alongside stories and movement. Children ages 4-8 accompanied by an adult will enjoy a creative story time in our galleries led by Artist Raul Gonzalez. Join us for one or two readings and stay for a special self-guided activity for kids. This event is free.

Born and raised in inner-city Houston, multi-dimensional artist Raul R Gonzalez explores topics such as work, fatherhood, labor, the working class, identity, challenging stereotypes, and abstraction through versatile methods of painting, drawing, performance, and dance. Raul’s work draws inspiration from personal and trans-cultural experiences. His work ranges from detailed drawings of construction scenes on concrete to colorful abstract installations made of cardboard and duct tape, or drawings and paintings of personal experiences.
Now living in San Antonio with his wife and two daughters, Raul spends his days as a stay-at-home parent. He also operates and manages Werk House SA, a converted studio space which functions as an Airbnb short-term rental space and art gallery.
