About this event

Michael Guerra Foerster is an artist living and working in San Antonio, Texas. Michael creates whimsical ceramic sculptures that focus on the ideas of happiness, change, trauma, despair, and transformation. In giving form to these ideas, Michael attempts to heal himself through the making process, while also bringing some joy to the viewers. Michael received a BFA with a concentration in ceramics from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2018, has studied at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and has exhibited nationally, including creating temporary and permanent public art pieces in San Antonio. Michael is also currently a visual arts instructor at SAY Sí (San Antonio Youth Yes) where he teaches middle and high school-age artists, who in turn regularly inspire and inform his work. The curriculum he co-creates focuses on creating elevated and original artwork, while also focusing on social justice and community centered action.

Michael Guerra Foerster, Every Time We Say Goodbye

May 19 > Sep 4

In his exhibition, Every Time We Say Goodbye, Foerster explores ideas of intimacy, separation, grief, and memory through ceramic sculptures he calls Floops. This work takes root in the artist’s subconscious and touches upon the fundamental transformation of interpersonal relationships through time, the coping mechanisms used to bring closure to traumatic experiences, and the incredible toll of the human condition.
