Henry Cardenas Fine Art
Welcome to my website: www.HenryCardenasArtist.com. I am an Artist who resides in San Antonio, Texas. Please enjoy my art, and reading my Bio, under the category: About the Artist, which explains the type art I create. Each day, I create some exciting art and enjoy sharing it with my Art Patrons, Fellow Artists, and Art Friends. Most of the time, I paint abstracts, landscapes, and still lifes in Acrylic and Oils. I also make sculptures of metal, wood, and glass or stone combinations. My work is exhibited in:
--- My gallery, Little Studio Gallery in Historic La Villita, San Antonio, Texas
--- The Adobe Fine Art, Ruidoso, New Mexico, www.theadobefineart.com
---The Alamo Street Gallery, San Antonio, Texas
---San Antonio Art League and Museum
---And, in my working studio: Cardenas Studio Gallery.
For the month of December 2012, I had a solo exhibit of my art at The Art Center of Corpus Christi, www.artcentercc.org. The Art Center of Corpus Christi and the Art Association of Corpus Christi hosted very nice opening and closing receptions in December. I am honored to have been the Juror for the 45th Annual Silver Cup Show of the Art Association of Corpus Christi and that exhibit was displayed concurrently with my solo exhibit. An article about the exhibits was in the Friday, December 14, 2012, issue of the Corpus Christi Caller Times. http://www.caller.com/news/2012/dec/14/art-center-of-corpus-christi-offers-four-in/. http://www.caller.com/photos/2012/dec/09/146454/. The CC Magazine featured an article about me and the exhibits in the December issue (pages 22 and 23) which is now also distributed at HEB Corpus Christi.

I was also the Featured Artist for November/December and April/May 2013 in my own gallery, Little Studio Gallery in Historic La Villita, San Antonio, with additional artworks exhibited. And, I will be the Featured Artist again for October/November 2013 with new and exciting artworks, paintings and sculptures.
In November 2012, The Art Lovers' Cookbook, San Antonio Edition, was released. I am one of the San Antonio artists invited and selected to be published in the book with an original recipe for Hot Peach-Glazed Shrimp and an image of my art. You can order the cookbook at www.artloverscookbooks.com. There is an interesting article about the cookbook at www.savorsa.com which includes a quote by me from the book.
I am one of the twelve artists selected in The Texas Contemporary Artists Series at the Institute of Texan Cultures-Smithsonian Affiliate, San Antonio, Texas. www.texancultures.com. The exhibit series is curated by Arturo Infanfe Almeida. There is a short video that the ITC posted about me and my art on www.youtube.com, search Henry Cardenas Artist. Large banners are displayed at the entrance to the Institute of Texan Cultures-UTSA, Smithsonian Affiliate, which show an image of my abstract painting, "Tropical Orange", in the lower left corner of the banner.

I will be doing website postings with additional images of my art which are available for purchase. And, I hope you can see my art in person at my galleries. I do ship pre-paid art with reasonable prices for shipping and handling, and there is no sales tax requirement when I ship out of the State of Texas.
