Highwire Arts Gallery will feature “San Antonio & Beyond: Prehistoric Rock Art to Urban Spaces & Familiar Eats”, photography by six local artists selected by Maureen ‘Momo’ Brown, curator and preservationist, to highlight our rich heritage of our city and beyond. With the 300th anniversary of the founding of San Antonio soon approaching in 2018, these photographs provide “windows” into the past as seen in the present—from Harold ‘Curt’ Harrell’s sample images of the earliest recorded art from rock shelters along the Rio Grande and Lower Pecos regions in south Texas, Aaron Farris’s beautiful images of the San Antonio Missions World Heritage Sites to capturing the everyday beauty with colorful El Mercado and downtown urban street scenes and architecture  with a definite twist by D’Mitri Kosub, Maureen ‘Momo’ Brown and Charles Harrison ‘Pompa’, and familiar “Eats” including a former local favorite, Hipp’s Bubble Room, by Robin Raquet. Everyone is invited to attend the opening reception, 2ndFriday, September 9th, from 6-10pm.
