2007 Texas Biennial, Bolm Studios
Arts Review  April 13, 2007
"...Salvador Castillo: If we were to extract each of the spaces from the context of the Biennial, I believe the dynamics of the Bolm chapter would hold up...."

Studio Visit: Aaron Meyers
Wry humor and technical precision dovetail in this Austin sculptor's art
Arts Column  November 23, 2012, by Andy Campbell
"...The first weekend of this year's East Austin Studio Tour, I served as a judge in the annual live-action reality-show art competition Eyes Got It!, masterminded by local curator/art critic Jaime Salvador Castillo. The idea of the contest is to make the process of juried art selection transparent, so that any artist who submits work can get good, honest feedback..."

So You Think You Can Paint?
Reality TV-style art competition returns for Season Two
Arts Story  November 18, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...That was the idea behind Eyes Got It!, the live art competition launched during the 2010 East Austin Studio Tour. Artist Salvador Castillo, who created the art blog 'Bout What I Sees, figured that as long as we're one nation under American Idol (and Survivor and The Bachelor and The Voice and Project Runway and Top Chef, yadda yadda yadda), why not embrace our fixation with reality TV for the benefit of the visual arts? So he put out a call for art and arranged for three Austin art professionals to judge the submissions and choose a winner just like they do on all those contest shows we TiVo, only do it live and in front of the public..."

"Drawing Lines: Explorations of Place"
The final exhibit of this public art project shows how every district in Austin has had artists working for it
Arts Story  March 31, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...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..."

"Gently Fried"
Local curatorial powerhouse Los Outsiders creates a poignant three-part exhibition (or is it five?)
Arts Review  June 4, 2015, by Seth Orion Schwaiger
"...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..."

Your Austin Artist
In a changing city, Michael Anthony García embraces the changing roles of the visual art maker
Arts Story  June 28, 2013, by Caitlin Greenwood
"..."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...."

Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow
This group show matches the majesty of the MACC's architecture
Arts Review  July 15, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...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...."

East Austin Studio Tour
The city's autumn marathon of art covers work by some 300 artists in 175 venues
Arts Story  November 12, 2010, by Robert Faires and Wayne Alan Brenner
"...A reality-TV-style art competition organized by Austin artist, blogger (Bout What I Sees), and former Chronicle visual-arts writer Salvador Castillo. Artists who responded to an open call have their work reviewed by a panel consisting of Okay Mountain artist Sterling Allen, Women and Their Work Program Director Rachel Koper, and Blanton Museum of Art assistant curator Risa Puleo before a public audience..."

2007 Texas Biennial, Butridge Gallery
The Chronicle's visual-arts writers review the second Texas Biennial in dialogue and find the work at the Dougherty Arts Center to be diverse but presented awkwardly
Arts Review  March 30, 2007
"...Salvador Castillo: For me, Velliquette's paper works seemed a little out of place. The colors were brighter than most of the other works..."

The Arts Funding Matrix: Reloaded
Arts Commission's FY 19 funding adjustments head to Council
DAILY Arts  October 2, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...It would've kept funding levels level with FY 18, except for the fact that almost 100 new applicants were approved for funding this year. So Commission Chair Jaime Salvador Castillo, Polgar, and commissioners Lulu Flores and Felipe Garza, along with Cultural Arts Division staff, scrambled to find a formula that would minimize the damage..."

City Arts Funding: The Resolution
Council approves 2019 funding, ponders next move
News Story  October 11, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...The start of the second act occurred largely out of the public eye, with the members of the working group – Arts Commission Chair Jaime Salvador Castillo, Vice Chair Michelle Polgar, and commissioners Lulu Flores and Felipe Garza – meeting three times with CAD staff to identify additional money that could be poured into the pot for applicant funding (they found around $1 million by raiding the budgets for the TEMPO temporary art program and the Community Initiatives program, and holding on to a 5% reserve) and running more than 16 scenarios for how to allocate the $12.47 million they now had among the 421 approved applicants. They couldn't erase all the cuts, but they could cap them at 11%, which meant groups would be looking at a drop of $10,000-$23,000 from FY 18 instead of $15,000-$80,000..."

Volitant Gallery: Volitant, we hardly knew ye
After 18 months, the Downtown showcase for contemporary art shuts down
Arts Story  October 19, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...(Sadly, it's the second gallery on Congress to close since summer; Fielding Lecht Gallery shut its doors in June.) Volitant didn't have a very long life – it opened on April 15 of last year – but it made the most of it, mounting 17 exhibitions in 18 months, with "Take Me to Bed or Lose Me Forever," a group show curated by Leona Scull-Hons, receiving an Austin Critics Table Award this year for Outstanding Group Gallery Exhibition. Its current and, as it turns out, farewell exhibition, "Femme Fantastique," a group show of visionary work by 14 female artists, won praise from Chronicle reviewer Salvador Castillo..."
