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.
