Red Dot Art Sale
May 16, 2018 | 6-10 PM
The 28th annual Red Dot Art Sale will honor Patrons Alice and Eric Foultz, who for 30 years have been champions of the arts—local, national, and international— as well as working to preserve San Antonio’s cultural heritage. The Foultzes have served on local, state, and national art boards and helped develop and acquire corporate collections, all while supporting artists through growing their collection.
This year’s Honorary Artist, Anne Wallace, creates videos, installations, and public projects that draw on both human rights and art practices. They are often community-based, incorporating multiple perspectives on culture and history through the use of personal narrative. From carving salvaged ‘street trees’ with a chainsaw to urban park commissions, the relationship between people and the environment is an underlying theme in her work.
Selected for the 2016/2017 Blue Star Contemporary Berlin Residency Program, Wallace has exhibited across the United States, Mexico, and Northern Ireland. You can find her artwork in the collections of the Museo Alameda Smithsonian (now Texas A&M Cultural Center), the City of San Antonio, the John Michael Kohler Art Center, the City of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and in many private collections including that of Alice and Eric Foultz.
Proceeds from Red Dot support dynamic initiatives to include a full range of exhibitions featuring regional, national, and international artists; public programs that extend the contemporary art dialogue for audiences of all ages; the Berlin Residency Program; and creative youth development programs. Additionally, Red Dot art sales proceeds are shared equally with the contributing artists.
On behalf of our dedicated Chairs Lauren Kate and Peter J. Holt, Alice and Eric Foultz, Anne Wallace, the hardworking Red Dot Committee, and BSC’s community of artists, students, program participants, staff, and Board of Directors, we thank you for your support.
