César A. Martínez, El Rio (The Border), 2011, mixed media, incised images on metal.

West Kings Highway is the street in San Antonio where César A. Martínez (b.1944) has lived for almost 40 years. The range and scope of his artwork is highlighted in this one-person exhibition – not a retrospective in the traditional sense, but an overview of his continuing creative development. The exhibition is based upon Martinez’s creative restlessness over the last few decades; his desire to continue, to go further down the road and to see what other adventures lay ahead. The artwork will be presented in six sections: Bato Series, Mestizo Series, South Texas Series, Serape Series, Monotypes and Collages.
