An exhibition featuring collages by Austin-based artist Lance Letscher. The show will include small collages on book covers and collages made of cut metal and staples.

Southwest School of Art (San Antonio)
November 30 – January 28

In her ongoing project, Umeyama Reports, Hiromi Stringer constructs an imaginary museum—the Umeyama Time Teleportation Museum (UTTM). The focus of the museum is the highlighted achievements of Stringer’s fictional character, Shoei Umeyama—a Japanese man who, in this narrative, experienced time teleportation to the contemporary world in which we live from the Japan of 170 years ago. ​Stringer’s works reflect her concerns with language, (mis)communication, and alternative points of view.
