The Carver Community Cultural Center in San Antonio, Texas presents new portraits by The Proximity of Being artist, Barbara Felix. The Glorious Way She Moves - Black Venus, showcases large scale expressive images of Black women from her San Antonio community. These works further share Felix’s fascination with dance while also inviting viewers to contemplate societal perceptions of race and beauty. Her dynamic multi-image paintings are a must see!
The exhibition also features portrait photography of the artist’s subjects by Chel Delaney. Exhibition opened Friday, January 22 and will run through Friday April 2, 2021.
The Glorious Way She Moves is open for public viewing Monday through Friday from 9:00am - 4:00pm, no appointment necessary.
Or visit the The Carver's Virtual Felix Gallery. While visiting the virtual gallery, check out the recorded zoom events: Conversations with The Artist and Her Muses, accessible from the Exhibitions link. It will be accessible indefinitely.

The Proximity of Being to premier at Luminaria San Antonio
I am so thrilled to announce that my very first public art installation project has been selected for Luminaria art festival in San Antonio!
Day: Friday, November 11, 2016
Location: Dignowity Park, 701 Nolan, San Antonio, TX
My concept is to explore everyone's need for connection and solitude and the push and pull between these two very human forces that are necessary parts of our existence. The concept combines dance, film, lasers and special effects, with my drawings which will be animated for this installation. I'm joined by the following people who are helping to make this project come into being:
Co-choreography by Amber Ortega-Perez and Charles Perez of Spareworks.dance
Cinematography, lighting and editing by James A. Borrego of Cine Studio San Antonio
Laser projection, lighting special effects, installation construction and 3D projection mapping by John Ward of Laser Ninja Productions
The physical aspects of the project concept originated from brainstorming with John but each of the four of us are putting in our own voice into the theme concept for the project and bringing them all together for a multi-projection digital installation to share with San Antonio.
