    Add Review/Comment

    The Texas Contemporary Artists Series exhibitions showcase the talents of some of Texas’ premier artists. This series focuses on the work of contemporary artists who call Texas home. Common to all of their work is the bold vision and unbridled exuberance that is the quintessence of Texan culture. The Texas Contemporary Artists Series is curated by Arturo Almeida, curator for the UTSA art collection.

    The latest artist in the series is Rex Hausmann, with his exhibition, "Ithica," inspired by Constantine Cavafy's poem, "Ithaca." The poem speaks of a sailor’s journey and arrival at port, analogous to Hausmann’ time away from San Antonio. His paintings incorporate personal mementos with iconic San Antonio images, such as ButterKrust bread packaging, the Cool Crest miniature golf sign, the Olmos Pharmacy marquee and other landmarks.

    Rex Hausmann lives and works as a full-time artist in San Antonio and Brooklyn. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Hausmann has shown and lectured in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Dallas, Atlanta, and internationally in Ireland, Italy, Mexico and the Bahamas.
