Ctrl+A is a collaborative exhibition with Presa House Gallery in San Antonio, Texas. In March of 2018 K Space Contemporary & K Space Art Studios traveled to San Antonio, TX to present “K Space in the House,” an incredible collection of over thirty Corpus Christi’s best visual artists. Through this unique collaboration both Presa House and K Space aim to promote one another, build relationships; create new exhibition opportunities, share ideas, gain new insights, and bridge communities through the arts.
As the second part of this artist exchange Presa House Gallery will be traveling to Corpus Christi, TX to present Ctrl+A. An exhibition surveying artwork from Presa House Gallery’s past two years of exhibitions. Curated by Rigoberto Luna, the exhibition features 50 artists from San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, TX; Los Angeles, CA and Monterrey, N.L., MX. The exhibition showcases a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, video, photography, installation, and performance.
“Ctrl+Ais the shortcut key for Select All; this exhibit in many ways is a complete overview of all of the talented artists we’ve been fortunate enough to host in our space in San Antonio. The hope is not only to cut and paste our artists into the wonderful exhibition spaces of K Space & K Space studios but we also hope to bring the overall experience and energy that we put into each of our exhibitions at Presa House.” – Rigoberto Luna

Rebel Heart by David Ramirez
I have been interested in art my entire life. I began drawing when I was a very young boy. I didn’t have much as a kid, so paper and a pencil went a long way with my imagination. I would draw dinosaurs when I was five, and I remember my teacher making a big deal out of my drawings. So I figured I was pretty good at it and decided to stick with it. I went to a few art schools throughout my life, but never graduated. My hectic life just would not allow it. I never gave up on art, or should I say it never gave up on me. Now I am a self taught graphic artist. I hope you enjoy my Rebel Heart show. Its a small collection of heart themed paintings, drawings and up cycled sculptures that can be used as purses. Made from re-purposed items and cigar boxes.
