Opening on June 10 at the San Antonio Art League and Museum, A Wildcatter’s Dream: Art, Oil and Wildflowers, is a major exhibit of the Art League’s foundational Davis Collection.  The complete Davis Collection has rarely been exhibited in its entirety.  The Davis Competitions – from 1927, 1928 and 1929 – were among the most significant cultural events in Texas during the formative years of the 20th century and were instrumental in forging the state’s emerging art community, catapulting Texas into the national limelight.

June 7 marks the opening night of Blue Star Contemporary’s four new summer exhibitions: Veo Mis Huesos, Manhattan Beach Memoir, As Far as the Eye Can See, and From Underfoot: Breaking through Surface and Ground.  Each show appeals to some aspect of summertime: the vibrating sounds of a city, nostalgia for the past, reflection and decision-making, and an engagement with the natural world.  If you miss the opening night, June 8 is First Friday, so BSC will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and will have free admission all day.

Get your canoe, kayak or paddleboat dusted off to celebrate our San Antonio River with the neighbors!  Stars, stripes and glitter galore!  Dogs and kids particularly welcome in the boats!

King William neighbors are invited to celebrate Independence Day with our wacky traditional regatta on the morning of July 4th.  First we paddle the river.  Some folks race, some folks leisurely drift through.  Everyone decks out in stars and stripes, the more outrageous the better.  Afterwards we have an award ceremony and party.  If you live in the area, you are invited to participate.  If you need a boat to borrow or have a boat to lend, please let me know so I can match up the participants with the gear.  

Please contact the Commodore of the King William Yacht Club for times and details (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
