To see and feel the anguish of a Syrian child refugee, look no further than the Portraits of Compassion exhibit on the walls of the banquet hall at San Antonio’s Trinity Baptist Church, on view until the end of April 2018. The painting, titled “...the least of these...,” is a hauntingly poignant portrait of a Syrian child. His eyes beseech us, in their sad determined gaze, to seek our humanity, wondering what went wrong.

Reception and exhibition opening for artist Cheryl Sheehan's debut art show. With intuition as her guide for color and material, and inspiration from nature, childhood stories and fairy tales, Sheehan's work begins with the eyes of her characters, which are often described as "pretty girls."

Visiting artist Martin Smith from Leeds, England is an Associate Lecturer at Leeds College of Art and co-founder of Laikingland, a product design practice that develops mechanical objects and devices. Smith’s research and work explore people’s perception and interpretation of space. Alongside this work, his practice is also concerned with making kinetic architectural maquettes that slowly investigate themes of repetition, precision and rules, and kinetic devices that investigate themes of humor, nonsense and futility.
