This afternoon I had the opportunity to spend some time in beautiful downtown San Antonio, at the newly renovated Briscoe Museum. Previously a historic city library, the museum is scheduled to open to the public in the fall of 2013. Renovations have been in the works for the past three and a half years and starting on Sunday, March 24, 2013, locals and Riverwalk tourists are welcome to enjoy the 12 Annual Nights of Artists
Art Sale and Exhibition which is free to the public. Everyone will have the opportunity to view incredibly beautiful artworks by nationally respected painters and sculptors whose subjects include the great American West with dreamy landscapes, rugged cowboys, vivid longhorns, and Native Americans
Exhibit will be free and open to the public starting Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 12-4pm. You will be able to visit on the remaining Sundays from 10am-4pm through Sunday, April 28, 2013. All pieces will be available for purchase and will remain in the gallery through the exhibit run
One of the artists showcased are the works of Enrique Guerra who traveled to many areas to find his inspiration. One painting depicted a girl working in the field. He was able to convince her to pose long enough for him to capture the colors and essence on a smaller scale sketch before transforming it into a much larger piece of art. The gallery features some of his works in both oil paintings and bronze sculptures.
