"...This is the perfect weekend to see Robert Jackson Harrington and Hector Hernandez's "Impossible to Tell." While we're still nursing the hangover from our annual Christmas consumerist binge (and another kind of hangover from New Year's Eve), and as we enter 2016 with all the unfounded hopes for a better cycle, the atmosphere of this exhibition makes the most sense. The brightly colored photographs and assemblage sculpture built from mostly newly purchased tools and other items (some still with price tags) invoke a quintessentially American air of victory and pride..."
"...In curating "YLA No. 11: Juventud Desenfrenada," Alberto McKelligan Hernandez picked the best artists he came across and was quite specific about which pieces were right for his vaguely subversive and pluralist format..."
"...South Austin's grayDUCK Gallery has a new show coming up this weekend. It's called "Identity Crisis," it's curated by Hector Hernandez, and it's about public and private identities and how they're formed..."
"...There are new works by Hector Hernandez and William Hundley brightening the spare and elegant walls of grayDUCK Gallery just off South First Street. There are new works by these two relentless art makers in a show called "Fugue States," and some of these works are collaborations and some of them are solo efforts..."
"...The photographic work of Mauro C. Martinez and Hector Hernandez is enigmatic and striking, and like that of Chavez and Garciá, uses the body as a reference point..."
"...Salvador Castillo, Michael Anthony García, and Hector Hernandez make up the Austin-based collective called Los Outsiders that curated this exhibition. They've brought the works of 14 artists, including García and Hernandez, into the gallery's soaring space, and that space is much improved by their presence...."
"...Los Outsiders, the creative collective behind exhibitions such as the Austin Critics Table Award-winning "Heir Today Gone Tomorrow" and "Gently Fried" and projects such as Dance Your Pants Off and #ATXLoteria, decided to get to know District 1 on an intimate level, through community, memory, and object. Members Jaime Salvador Castillo, Michael Anthony García, Hector Hernandez, and Robert Jackson Harrington interviewed district residents, gathering stories and personal objects that became the basis for an exhibit of mementos the people of District 1 hold dear and images of the area they call home..."
"...One of the first is local artist and curator Michael Anthony Garcia, who joined Canales for the last mile before hosting the artist and his partner at his own house for a number of days. The trek is not only representative of Canales' wider practice of re-pioneering the forgotten spaces between destinations, but also representative of the curatorial approach of local collective Los Outsiders (Garcia, Jaime Salvador Castillo, Robert Jackson Harrington, and Hector Hernandez) – an approach that runs counter to the top-down, near-anthropological approach cleanly separating artist from curator, instead replacing that historical tack with one that is actively involved and clearly engaged with the artistic process itself..."
"..."We all had on name tags [at the 'YLA' opening], and I remember trying to put together the artists with the pieces, finding the pieces you liked and finding the people who made them," says García with a chuckle. One result of "YLA 11" was a newfound friendship among artists Hector Hernandez, Salvador Castillo, and García, who would later band together to establish the creative collective Los Outsiders...."
"...Among the workers at Tuesday's press conference was Hector Hernandez, 53, who said he no longer works construction but had done so for 12 years. He said that in his experience, with some exceptions for conscientious companies, many employers not only did not supply harnesses or safety lines but didn't supply even simpler safety gear like hard hats..."
"..."It took a lot longer than we'd thought," says Jill Schroeder, owner and curator of the gallery that, in its earlier iteration, showcased excellent works by Megan Kimber, Hector Hernandez, William Hundley, John Mulvany, Cherie Weaver, the Sodalitas group, and so many others. "We wanted to open back in February, but we didn't expect to do as much work as we wound up doing..."
"...Because Melville House also publishes the philosophical shenanigans of Lars Iyer, which you can read because you enjoy philosophy or humor or both, or which you might want to own just for the cunning cover photos by Austin artist William Hundley (whose work is currently on display – along with that of Hector Hernandez – in Austin's own grayDUCK Gallery)...."
"...Apply mascara and experience why. (Also: Fri., 9pm, Red Eyed Fly) – Raoul Hernandez Carla Morrison..."
"..."This street was the mecca of orquesta in Texas, right here in Austin, Texas," says Manuel "Cowboy" Donley, nodding toward the present-day Sixth Street outside the Hernandez Cafe near Sixth and Waller. "We'd have musicians ó good musicians ó come from all over: Houston, San Antonio, Corpus..."
"...PACHANGA! LATINO MUSIC FESTIVAL Fiesta Gardens (Raoul Hernandez)..."
"...Former Texas Dept. of Commerce director Cathy Bonner, $250; engineer Caesar Arizpe, $250; and business owner and Capital Metro chair Michael VonOhlen, $250; business owner Ramon Carrasquillo, $250; engineer Joe Hernandez, $250; consultant Hector Gutierrez, $150; attorney James Cousar, $125..."
"...A recent invite to NYC's Jazz at Lincoln Center was well-deserved. – Raoul Hernandez Great Lake Swimmers..."
"...With the possible exception of Escovedo's usual set closer "I Wanna Be Your Dog" landing three songs before the end of the disc, More Miles Than Money is an excellent culmination of this unique songwriter's post True Believers solo career. (Sunday, March 22, La Zona Rosa, 11pm) 3.5 STARS - Raoul Hernandez..."
"...He and band did just that. -- Raoul Hernandez..."
"...And, as always, when sloppy writing and reporting fall through the cracks, you gotta find fault with the editor. That said, please put a cot in Hernandez's office..."
