MEET-THE-ARTISTS RECEPTION AT ST. PHILIP'S COLLEGE WEDNESDAY APRIL 18 FOR OPENING OF I, TOO, SING SAN ANTONIO---ONE OF THE LARGEST SURVEY EXHIBITIONS OF THE AREA’S CURRENT BLACK ARTISTS TO BE SHOWN IN THE CITY

The unique free meet-the-artists reception for an exhibition at St. Philip's College featuring 22 of San Antonio’s most exciting current black artists starts at 6 p.m. April 18 in the Bowden Alumni Center of the college's G. J. Sutton Learning Center building at 1801 Martin Luther King Drive in the City's Denver Heights neighborhood (building marked as "10" on the interactive maphttp://alamo.edu/spc/imap-mlk/). Parking for this family-friendly City of San Antonio Tricentennial Observance event is complimentary.

Organizers of San Antonio’s Eastside Tricentennial CelebrationI, Too, Sing San Antonio: An Exhibition at St. Philip’s College of the Works of Local African American Artists in Celebration of San Antonio’s Tricentennial that takes place at the college April-through-May have invested more than a year of time to organize the exhibit as a team that included the curatorial talents of Dr. Scott Sherer, director of the Main Art Gallery at UTSA, and the arts patronage expertise of Aaronetta Pierce, the college’s Tricentennial project team consultant.

Without spoilers, one element of the program that guests will need to review thoroughly upon entry and long after the experience becomes unavailable is the exhibition program with illuminating contributions from both Sherer and Pierce.

Subtle highlights of the full-color booklet range from Sherer's identification of hosts for exhibitions by local African-American artists to Pierce's call to action to pursue a global aspiration "that artists have the opportunity to flourish and to become the best artists they can be."

Within the exhibition program, it is fair to reveal that Sherer has authored a thought-provoking, interpretive narrative for all who journey through either the entirety of or a single element of one of the largest survey exhibitions of the area’s current black artists to be shown in the city.

Truly Tricentennial worthy, Pierce might say of this collaboration.

In an excerpt from the program, Pierce shares, "I, Too, Sing San Antonio succeeds because of the knowledge and dedication of the curator, Dr. Scott Sherer. He is one of the few local art professionals whose expert art credentials cover the full measure of art history including an extensive knowledge of African American art history. Dr. Sherer has taken the time to meet with the artists, visit their studios, and when possible, see their earlier exhibits. At UTSA, he teaches a number of African American students and it is relevant to their career paths that three UTSA students are participants in this exhibition. Dr. Sherer has taught many of the artists in this current exhibition how to follow the best professional practices. The International Review of African American Art (IRAAA) selected him to edit a special issue of the magazine last year (2017) presenting the black art scene in San Antonio. I am deeply grateful to Dr. Sherer for bringing this level of professionalism to the process and for his willingness to curate this exhibition, to be both stern and patient with the artists, to design and direct the installation of the show and, finally, to believe in these artists and their work.”

"San Antonio’s identity has very long been associated with arts and cultural arenas, and this exhibition demonstrates that a vital spirit continues to thrive in our neighborhoods. I, Too, Sing San Antonio offers visual delight, intellectual intensity, and opportunity for new thinking and musing," Sherer writes.

St. Philip's College is the Eastside anchor for San Antonio’s Founder’s Day events and host to multiple official Tricentennial events this year, including the citywide Tricentennial Art Day, organizers shared.
