The St. Anthony Hotel and Felder Gallery Open Analog/2020 Featuring Works By San Antonio Artist, Rick Kroninger.
San Antonio, Texas (August 3, 2020) – The St. Anthony, a Luxury Collection Hotel, and Felder Gallery invite you to come see fourteen new drawings of analog objects by Artist Rick Kroninger. The show is running from July 27 – September 7, 2020 with an opening reception featuring an appearance by the San Antonio artist on Friday August 14 and subsequent Fridays through September 4, 2020 from 5-7 pm. Take a step back during this exhibit by using the rotary phone to dial a loved one, or play vinyl on the record player. “It is a timely show” says Robby Felder, owner of Felder Gallery, “as technology continues to impact almost every part of our lives, there is reason to look back as we seek meaningful ways to connect. Looking back reminds us that what was important did not go out of style. Like everything, it changes, but meaningful connections are not pasśe."
Each piece in this series is of a nostalgic artifact that was (at one time) a part of life. Back in the day, these objects of desire and/or luxury were everywhere.
And so, the artist’s homage is a reminder of these inherent truths:
• Looking backward is looking forward.
•Things that are up-to-date are made up of things out-dated
•Advances in anything are preceded by other things
Those with old souls in young bodies (and vice versa)
will relate. And feel especially welcome.
The opening reception will take place at The St. Anthony Hotel in Peacock Alley – Ballroom Foyer, 300 East Travis Street. Guests will have the chance to speak with the artist about his incredible works. All events are complimentary for hotel guests and include a welcome champagne toast and light hors d'oeuvres while engaging in an analog experience. The St. Anthony Club Bar will be open for you to stay and mingle on your own.
