The Projecto & Presa House Gallery are happy to present “Degradado” (Gradient), an exhibition featuring artists from Austin, Tx, and Monterrey, Mx in San Antonio, Tx.


“Long-lasting friendships and professional relationships inspired this show where colors turn to shapes and reason dissolves in emotions.

Each artists’ voice is clear and defined, they share very little with each other but together they meld into a gradient spectrum of awesomeness”. 


The opening reception will be held First Friday, December 7 from 6:00 PM to 12:00 AM featuring music by Chido Machine (Austin, TX).

Degradado will be on view by appointment December 7 through December 29, 2018.

I didn’t say anything when JuanGa passed away; there was enough people talking about it either way (Even Obama tweeted!)… But, when I heard the idea about doing a tribute in his honor, I thought that was the perfect way for me to contribute and express what we as Mexicans and music lovers feel about it/his passing 😦 So, this September the 30th we’re doing a Tribute to JuanGa and I just wanted to invite you guys to enjoy one of the best Mexican gifts to the world, Juan Gabriel’s music (or as I call him for reference, the Mexican Elton John haha).

Sept 30th 9PM at El Sol y la Luna, Austin Tx. Here is the event on FB in case you want more info 😉 Happy last week of September :O
