Join us on Second Saturday, November 14th for the Opening Reception of Luck and Loss, an exhibition featuring the work of Stephanie Torres, a San Antonio-based artist and the director of Provenance Gallery.

With this series of self-portraits, Torres reflects upon the physical and emotional scars left behind in the aftermath of her cancer diagnosis:

“There is beauty, strength, and life in these scars. They represent not just what was taken, but also what was left behind. I live my life in the moments between cancer recovery and possible recurrence. This work expresses those feelings of intense trepidation about the future, at odds with an eagerness to live life fully in the present.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Torres earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art from Our Lady of the Lake University, where she specialized in painting and mixed media. She later studied Art History and Criticism at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Torres has been involved in the local art community for over 12 years as an artist, educator, and curator.
