Three Walls is an artist-run gallery that creates a venue for
they feel free to take risks with their work. The gallery encourages
artists to expand on and stretch the current ideas they are working with,
and is devoted to supporting both emerging artists from San Antonio,
national/international emerging artists. Three Walls had its inaugural
exhibition in June 1999 with artist Veronica Fernandez, and mounts 9-10
exhibitions annually. The following projects are just a sampling of the
pieces made by some of the artists who have shown at Three Walls during
the past four years: Randy Wallace’s Gyromancer, a hybrid of sculpture,
installation, sound, and performance, was as intense as it was gorgeously
put together. Chris Musgrave, an artist from San Francisco, made a sound
and vision piece entitled Interstice, where he mounted a tiny camera
gallery, and had random people move, talk, sing, or just stand there
front of a blue velvet background. The piece was simulcast on the internet
in real time. Miami artist Gavin Perry’s interest in low-rider
the inspiration for his exhibition Scenario. He made meticulous and vibrant
prints of pin-striped designs, and coupled those prints with a video
homemade "bed" that jumped up and down on a hydraulic system,
mimicking the funk of the real low-rider. Margaret Craig’s Gunk
was a sticky sweet assemblage of "veins" and "arteries" filled
with cholesterol-like formations made of plaster and sugar. Alex Lopez’s
In Search Of was a poignant and somewhat haunting installation incorporating
sculpture and video that propelled his career forward into other exhibitions.
Silly Bastards was political, controversial, and extremely powerful on
a number of levels, and stirred an uproar the night of his opening.
Three Walls will continue to show artists who are exploring, thinking,
dreaming, and who are fearless in their ability to take risks and push
For Stray 2004, Three Walls is planning an exhibition of 4 artists entitled
"still.life." The artists are: Kate Terrell, Hills Snyder,
and Michele Monseau, all from San Antonio.
