Check out Art By Blas and Rita.

Totally did not expect this!!! One of my vendor friends messaged me and said she just voted for our Art by Blas and Rita Gallery!!! I was surprised and so honored to be in the presence of some super cool Art Galleries in SA. I know we won't compete against these well known Art Galleries but once again, we are just honored to be in your presence! Lol. We are simply a small Art Studio & Gallery but my husband Blas Hernandez Jr. and I have been making an impact in the Art world since 2000. Of course he has been painting since was 5 years old and has been recognized as one of San Antonio's Local Artists and he inspired me 21 years ago to paint my first piece of Artwork. He is a true inspiration in my eyes and I know to many others. I am truly honored that we have our Studio/Gallery/Boutique located in Southtown at 716 S. Alamo. Every month we Feature different Artists and open up our Media, Broadcasting & Magazines Organization to help be a Voice to Local Artists of SA. We even Feature Artists on our Inspiration 4 Life Radio Station, Live On Air With Rita Radio & FB Live Shows and even have a Magazine dedicated specifically to Artists in SA, Artists Expressions Magazine and recognize Artists that give back as Local Heroes in our Inspiration 4 Life Magazine. We even Feature our youth in their own Magazine, Live On Air In SA Magazine. If we do get your Vote, thank you in advanced but all we mainly ask is for you to come by to visit with us! Come by for our 1st Friday Art Walk & Shop in Southtown, December 3rd, 716 S. Alamo from 5-9pm. Thank you everyone!!! Much Love to All ~Rita

Nominate your favorites through Nov. 26 and return Dec. 1-29 to vote for the Best of the City 2022

Our Story

BLAS HERNANDEZ JR.

Being a Latino Artist in San Antonio has given Blas the opportunity to be involved with our communities. His Artwork has been displayed throughout the City of San Antonio, from the West Side of SA, King William area to the Northside of SA.

Blas Hernandez Jr., born on September 23, 1965, and raised in San Antonio, Texas picked up his first paintbrush and put it on canvas in 5th grade and hasn’t stopped since. It was then, at 10 years old, he realized that being an Artist got him a lot of recognition and respect from his school, family, and friends. They saw the dedication, time and hard work it took him to make his artwork come to life. Blas was inspired to take his art to many places of business and was appreciated by Rosarios Mexican Restaurant, El Buen Gusto Mexican Café, Retro Haus, Ray’s Puffy Tacos, Taco Haven, Madhatter’s Tea House and Café, Tienda Guadalupe, and Infinito Botanica Gallery to name a few. Throughout his many years of experience of being an artist, he has done yearly events in his community. Blas has done Art in the Hood, First Fridays at El Sol Studios, Tienda Guadalupe, Rey Wi***es, South Town Imporium, Blue Star and Art in the Park. He has also displayed his artwork at Centro Cultural Aztlan for Dia De Los Mu***os and Virgen De Guadalupe for the past 5 years. He has also been part of Casa Bohemia Gallery, Casa Margarita Gallery, Milagros, Pulquerios, Jive, and Gallista Art Gallery. Through all this inspiration, Blas and his wife Rita also had their own Art Studio for 4 years and held Art Shows every 1st and 3rdFridays. They also showcased and Featured Artwork from Students in our Communities and held Art Classes to Educate those who were interested in learning about Art and learning how to paint.

Blas has a lot of passion and love for the art. He makes sure he finds time with his busy schedule for his family, work, and art. With Blas having a full time job at Christus Santa Rosa for 29 years, has kept him a very busy man. He has the entire Hernandez Family, involved in art as well. He and his wife of 20 years, Rita Hernandez, paint together as well. Sometimes there is not enough time, so they tag team to finish a piece of art. They paint together as a family to keep the art alive in their lives. You can see it in his art and the way he expresses a particular piece that he has completed. One of his favorite themes in painting artwork is Dia De Los Mu***os. He takes more time and gets involved with this event because it shows more of his cultural side. Blas is inspired by the talented Posada, and is proud to be on the same page as many other talented artists. Blas is very humble and true to his friends. Especially when it comes to being known as a Local Latino Artist. He simply shines like a golden coin. To Blas, it has been a true blessing to know that he has come this far in his life and for his community.
