A collection of contemporary works from San Antonio, Los Angeles, New York, Kansas City & Philadelphia. Organized like any good collection: varied tastes, materials & subjects form prose of an odd exotic sort. Please enjoy the chapters enclosed. Happy reading.

Producer/Director


In an exhibition that was curated in around a week, we find a story of Rex Hausmann of Hausmann Millworks: A Creative Community. The-GO-man, the get-it-done-guy, the-too-many-irons-in-the-fire-but-making-it-all-work. 1/4 Italian, 1/4 Mexican, 1/2 German and all San Antonian, Hausmann has a new story for everyday of the week and they are all good. Hausmann Millworks is a 44,000 square foot millwork
manufacturing building in San Antonio Texas, that has been transformed into "A Creative Community" of artist studios, galleries and provides opportunities and real life, art and business education to its artists. This exhibition includes mostly San Antonio artists and tells the story of how they and other friends have come into the conversation and are now Booking It To Brooklyn. From Marilyn Lanfear and Larry Graeber who's work spans five decades, to LA artist Kiel Johnson who is showing in various museums to Mel Latimer and Casey Ruiz who are just getting their feet wet, the list of artists and artwork are as varied as America itself. Exhibited in Brooklyn's Central Booking Art Space in Dumbo. The show revolves around the galleries theme of art books, prints and works on paper with some more conceptual notions. Don't be surprised if this list of artists changes before the opening, it is par for the course. The show may end up in Tunisia for all we know...with bells on.
