Presa House welcomes you to the closing of our inaugural exhibitions featuring work by San Antonio-based artists Beer Fang, Michael Menchaca, and Elizabeth and Maurice Treviño. Our reception includes music by Radio X and a live performance by psychedelic-country-punk-pop band Snowbyrd. $2 suggested donation to our outdoor stage and costumes are highly encouraged.

Beer Fang, aka Bryan Duff, brings his latest series of humorous and distinctive illustrations just in time for Halloween. Duff explains “Life After Halloween is not about what time of year it is. It’s about creating something everyday.”

Michael Menchaca, returns to San Antonio armed with a new body of work completed while away earning his MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. In Cubiculum, Menchaca will be presenting a selection his signature serigraph’s, as well as a multi-dimensional installation and digital projection.

Since 2000 Elizabeth and Maurice Treviño have worked together to create numerous large scale paintings, mixed media works, drawings and silkscreen poster art. Fade Away is the couples first exhibition in San Antonio since their 2004 exhibit at Bismarck Gallery at the Blue Star Art Complex.

Beer Fang: Life After Halloween
Originally from Memphis, Bryan Alan Duff is a San Antonio-based artist and musician who creates both digital and hand-drawn illustrations primarily using marker on vellum. His easily recognizable work, known for its often satirical style, has been used on countless posters, flyers, album covers, zines and more throughout the San Antonio art and music scene.

Michael Menchaca: Cubiculum
Michael Menchaca’s work is heavily informed by his background. As the child of two Mexican immigrants, his work reflects a desire to bridge his Latin roots and contemporary American culture. His chosen medium, printmaking, lends to the history of art and language in Mexican-American culture, and his work continues to be an exploration of the iconography and symbology of Pre-Columbian civilizations.

Liz & Maurice Treviño: Fade Away
Maurice and Elizabeth Treviño are both native San Antonians and graduates of the Fine Arts Program at UTSA. They have been making art collaboratively and continue to work individually since 2000.

Some endeavors are carefully thought out, consistent and cleanly executed. Other collaborations are less planned, with the work being completed solo, independent of the other, with little consultation about the direction of the piece.
