January 21 - February 20, 2020
Nostalgia for the Future, an art exhibition featuring works by artist, Jason Willome. The exhibit opens on January 21, and will be available to view Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. until February 20, 2020, at the Art Department Gallery located on the Pecan Campus, building B-103.
Willome attended San Antonio College in 1996 and earned his BFA from the University of Texas at Austin in 2000. Willome then earned his MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2003. He is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Art & Art History at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Willome’s artworks seek to point out moments of friction in human perception, whether these are the trust placed in represented images, the inherited grievances of pollution and politics, the cognitive bias of conspiracy theory and apocrypha, the filtered attention of nostalgia, the social constructs of gender, the suspension of disbelief in cinematic narrative, or the aggressive guesswork of religious dogma.
On Thursday, January 23rd from 5:30-7:30PM, a reception will be held at the STC Art Department Gallery, building B-103. Willome will be present during the reception. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
