During the exhibit, prints will be available for purchase and you can enjoy the sounds of local musical artists, Mariachi Corazon de Tejas.
The artist has exhibits in San Antonio every weekend, and he will be on the road to exhibit in Corpus Christi after this one evening exhibit in Austin on Thursday.
Garcia has resided in Austin since 1993. Originally from West Texas, Joe calls Lubbock home.
Some of his artistic influences come from a variety of cultures and sub cultures. He explains to his clients “growing up Mexican American, you grow up with the best of both worlds.”
He draws inspiration from his culture, his large family and is greatly encouraged and assisted by his wife Mary R. Garcia.
Little Mexico Restaurant is located at 2304 S 1st St. For more information, visit the artist’s Facebook page.
