San Antonio Museum of Art Presents The First Major Exhibit Of Texas Women Abstract Artists

Curators at the San Antonio Museum of Art know abstract art can be intimidating to the casual observer, but they're hopeful works like Sara Cardona's "Circular Thinking" can change that.

One of around 95 pieces on display Feb. 7-May 3 as part of Texas Women: A New History of Abstract Art, the 6-foot-by-4-foot piece began as a smaller hand-cut collage, which Cardona then photographed, printed onto fabricated aluminum and cut into a sculpture-like shape. "The process for me is a little bit like film editing," says Cardona, a Dallas-based artist who was born in Mexico City. "I have a lot of pieces laid out and I move them around until I see what I like."
