“Hidden gem in San Antonio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We happened upon the new Blue Star Contemporary arts museum by chance while on a get-away weekend to a Noble Inns B&B.
The show was comprised of 3 Texas women artists. The one familiar to us Sharon Kopriva. It was a comprehensive collection of work from her religious icon sculptural pieces to her new multi-dimensional canvases. Once of our favorite artists since her show at the Menil, we love to follow her work.
The gallery space is so conducive to this type of show. We spent over an hour there and would love to go back.
What a great surprise - but San Antonio is full of those!!

“Small but powerful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

So enjoyed the Gary Sweeney exhibit that was on at the Blue Star Contemporary Gallery while we were there. If this is the normal caliber of artists who are invited to exhibit, it is well worth the $5 admission. And afterwards, head over to the brewery for some good brew and eats. All accessible by foot from the Mission Reach of the Riverwalk.

“Nice Contemporary Gallery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Blue Star is another area of San Antonio that is being developed with restaurants, art, shops, etc. and is across the street from the Guenther House and the Pioneer Mill. The Blue Star Contemporary Art Center features local artists, as well as temporary exhibits. We were surprised and delighted that George Tobolowsky's "Found Objects" metal sculpture had just opened a 10 week run. The admission is very reasonable and we enjoyed it very much.

“San Antonio Painters Exhibit a Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

Blue Star Contemporary Gallery is a frequent stop when visiting San Antonio because there is always something great to see. The newest exhibit which runs through August 18 of San Antonio Painters is a must-see. Eight local artists work is exhibited. A very enjoyable exhibit!
