Official Grand Opening
Founders Katy Silva & Andrei Renteria Ceramic + paper artist Sarah Sauer


San Antonio based artists Katy Silva & Andrei Renteria have announced the opening of their new art studio: Flax Studio! Why Flax? Because it is the key material in oil paint and canvas, which suited the two painters perfectly. "Andrei and I have seen the incredible growth of San Antonio's art scene," said Silva. "Flax was born out of our passion for painting and for the future success of the creative community."  Flax welcomes ceramic and paper products artist, Sarah Sauer. "Flax is honored to host Sarah..she crafts brilliant ceramic and paper pieces...Visitors to the studio are in for something truly unique."

Neighborhood news & bonus stuff the house baby!

Oh we have so much fun here at the 1906. In December we launched our line of Tacotonio product: stickers, postcards and tees. People were screaming, "Brilliant idea! Where can I get a sticker? I'll take 10 of those!" And so, we made you all a billboard for photo ops. Designed and painted by 1906 owner, Andy Benavides. Have fun and tag it! #tacotonio! We can't wait to see your pics.

We here at the 1906 are so proud to have Alex, James and Albert here on our property with us. Their workspace sits right next to my office. I get to watch them work, rework, work, listen to their music, work some more until finally I get to see the finished masterpieces. What a treat for me. Take time to read the article. It's worth it. Congratulations guys.
