<p><span class="fsl">Opening Receptions:<br /> Thursday, April 2nd, 7 – 10pm <br /> Friday, April 3rd, 7-10pm <br /> <br /> Wesley Harvey returns to San Antonio from Red Lodge, Montana, where he recently became the Curator of Exhibitions of the Red Lodge Clay Center, to bring us a new body of work that further examines gay male sexuality and popular culture. By use of appropriation, Harvey creates narratives and collages enveloped by the queer theory on hand-built ceramic sculptures such as, plates, teapots, vessels, and other objects.<br /> <br /> Harvey previously examined his surroundings and personal encounters as the influence for his collaging process. Recently, he has put himself aside and begun looking at others, almost in a voyeuristic way, to find new narra<span class="text_exposed_show">tives. Through the use of personal ads like Craig&rsquo;s List and other online resources, he finds both the normative and the deviant behaviors that interest him to help create these narratives within the ceramic hand-built forms.<br /> <br /> Harvey received his MFA in ceramics at Texas Tech University, and his BFA in ceramics at Indiana University. <br /> <br /> He currently resides in Red Lodge, Montana.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wesleyharvey.com%2F&amp;h=BAQFJIT0S&amp;enc=AZMIvOaZITLlTccoVDGoPYGvDJLSVZMnBG6u262rE4m6G8fmw3nR-3y1pZgra9diQhE&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow nofollow" target="_blank">www.wesleyharvey.com</a><br /> <br /> Hello Studio is an artist run gallery and studio space in the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/BlueStarArtsComplex" data-gt="{&quot;entity_id&quot;:&quot;340868015943786&quot;,&quot;entity_path&quot;:&quot;WebEventPublicProdFeedPermalinkController&quot;}" data-hovercard="/ajax/hovercard/page.php?id=340868015943786&amp;extragetparams=%7B%22directed_target_id%22%3A0%7D">Blue Star Arts Complex</a>. <br /> <a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hellostudiosa.com%2F&amp;h=1AQEb6kHc&amp;enc=AZOlVGwi_PaKXVsaAHNdxM3gZ6cIrPV-xihF7pIhQMAmCE4u7xLpf3L2cjlDj-r0V68&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow nofollow" target="_blank">www.hellostudiosa.com</a></span></span></p>
