This weekend, we have a culture-filled lineup of things for you to eat, do, buy, and see. From art galleries to an Indian festival, San Antonio has a lot to offer. Best of all--everything on this list is free.
This weekend, experience another country just by going downtown. The Indian Association of San Antonio is hosting their annual Festival of India at La Villita on Saturday, starting at 2 PM. The event will bring a taste of Indian culture to the 210 community with everything from authentic food, clothing and jewelry, music, Bollywood dance, yoga and meditation, henna, and more. For more information, check the IASA Facebook page. Free.
Stop by the Ruiz-Healy gallery for the first weekend of their new show, "Becoming." In this exhibit, artist Jesse Amado explores themes of "synthesis...steered by composition and colorings" and Catholicism. The show handles the relationship between art and the "metaphysical," and it's bright colors and fun shapes will liven up your weekend. Free.
To support local art this weekend, check out the Saturday Small Works Sale and Sunday Art Market. Saturday's event will be at Southtown 101 and will showcase a specially curated group of artists. For a bigger selection, Sunday's popup shop will include vinyl, vintage fashion and jewelry, juices, astrology readings, and more. Free.
Explore the overlap between collage and printmaking at the Southwestern School of Art's Elvia Perrin exhibit. In this show, "Clean Cut," Perrin's prints utilize editing and collage techniques but ultimately create beautifully simple, minimalist designs. Her work simplifies complex ideas like chaos and order and will be the perfect black-and-white ending to your weekend. Free.
