Established in 2005, within a roughly 3,000sqft converted HEB warehouse, the Galería Guadalupe hosts a multitude of art exhibitions, artists and events that expand our interpretation of the world around us. The Visual Arts program offers artist talks and tours free to our neighbors and tourists alike. Additionally, the Galería hosts annual programming such as the Día De Los Muertos altar community exhibition and the Hecho a Mano/Made by Hand fine arts & crafts market.

On average, our programming features a new exhibition every 6–8 weeks, with an emphasis on local and regional artists. The goal of the Visual Arts program has been to highlight the artistic excellence of local intercultural dialogue via the visual arts discipline.

Common Currents
Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center
March 1 – April 29, 2018

The exhibition will premiere at the newly renovated historic Progreso Building at 1300 Guadalupe Street across from the Guadalupe Theater.

In celebration of San Antonio’s Tricentennial year, six downtown artist-centric organizations: Artpace San Antonio, Blue Star Contemporary, Carver Community Cultural Center, the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, the Mexican Cultural Institute, and the Southwest School of Art, will partner to present an exhibition that will illuminate the 300 years of their hometown’s history. Common Currents is a diverse, encyclopedic showcase of San Antonio’s history as told and rewritten by more than 300 visual and performing artists, invited to participate by their peers, and presented over 6 venues.

Drawing on the connections or currents that run through San Antonio’s vibrant creative community, each of the organizing partners began by inviting two artists. These initial 12 artists were then asked to invite two peer artists, until more than 300 were amassed. All of the participating artists were assigned one year of San Antonio’s history on which to reflect in the development of their work for Common Currents . This exhibition is presented chronologically through a variety of contemporary media across the six venues.

Common Currents draws a portrait of San Antonio, by San Antonians. With the “chain letter-inspired” framework for the exhibition, each organization takes a backseat, letting the participating artists make decisions that may traditionally be the role of the organization or curator. This provides for an exciting presentation of artistic connections spanning our center city’s art venues.
