First Thursday’s are for Art Lovers

Here at Blue Star, Thursday’s are for art-lovers, and that’s never more evident than during our monthly First Thursday’s. Here’s a peek into what you can expect for October’s edition of First Thursday – October 5th.


HIGH NOON at UTSA’s Terminal 136” will feature painted reliefs and works on paper by John Chatmas. Chatmas says the ambiguities intended in the exhibition could be seen as one step up from an ink blot, and if this holds true, then the exhibition may say something about what we like or don’t like about our culture.



Daniela Cavazos Madrigal: The Things They Carried at Hello Studio”. Through the use of traditional craft practices such as sewing and weaving, this exhibition uses textiles and found materials as relics and vehicles for narratives.



Laura Q jewelry trunk-show at Mockingbird Handprints”. Laura’s unique, handmade works are crafted from materials like silver, resin and semi-precious stones.




It’s Alive! Figure drawing Show at Brick”. DrawNite creates a space for San Antonio to come together and draw the human figure in a friendly (yet spooky!) environment. The theme of the night will be classic movie monsters.





Fall exhibitions opening + Courtney Kessel performance at Blue Star Contemporary”. Join Blue Star Contemporary for two new exhibition openings: “Homebodies” and “Origins, Rations, Extractions”, as well as a performance by artist Courtney Kessel and her daughter Chloé.
