Studio Gallo Inc. was born in '92 in our warehouse apartment in the Blue Star Arts Complex in Southtown, San Antonio. We quit our jobs when a dear friend promised to send us all the check design work we could handle. Thank you Joanne Stawicki [RIP]
With so many artist friends, we rented office space at 910 S. Alamo where each month we shut down the computers, cleared the floor, iced the beer and opened the gallery to the First Friday Art Walkers. It was a win/win as the artists showed their art free, while we enjoyed an office full of new fun art every month!
Artists/Designers/Fashionistas/Photographers/Sculptors like Robert Tatum, Veronica Prida, Agusto Cuellar, Rick Hunter, Peter Zubiate, Katie Pell, Hank Lee, Leigh Ann Lester, Dwayne Bohuslav, Franco Mondini-Ruiz, Henry Stein, Andy Benavides, Joe Lopez, Agosto Cuellar, Chuck Ramirez, Alex Deleon, Twyla Arthur, and so many more, including Lewis, were elevating San Antonio's art scene!
Southtown's Coffee Shops & Restaurants kept the neighborhood fed and quenched.... Espuma, Rosario's, LaTuna, Blue Star Brewery, El Mirador, and can't forget the original Pig Stand.
