    Interpreting the desert through art
    SATXtoday: Hailey Marmolejo Painting deny true self
    Titled “Deny True Self,” artist Hailey Marmolejo’s work is a nod to the spirit of the Tejana woman, and the beauty + strength of the South Texas landscape. | Painting by Hailey Marmolejo
    Are you a fan of the desert landscapes? Then this exhibit is for you.

    Unobstructed Horizons” opens Friday, June 7 at the Agarita Loft. Viewers will experience sun, sky, and desert landscapes transformed into paintings, photography, and sculpture work. Curated by the Head of Development at the McNay, Katy Silva León, each piece in the exhibition is a tribute to the desert’s ability to inspire, reflect, and reveal notions about ourselves + our relationship with the natural world.

    The show also challenges guests to not think of a desert as a barren wasteland, but to witness the strength and resilience of the beautiful landscape.

    Here are the three artists featured in the exhibit:

    From the editor
    The first time I truly feel in love with art + museums was when I visited the Vatican Museum in Vatican City during the summer of 2011. The group I went with spent 45 minutes inside, while I took three hours to browse all the magnificent historical objects, paintings, and sculptures. And no, you cannot take a photo of the Sistine Chapel ceiling — trust me, my cousin tried and got scolded by the museum’s guards.
