IORIENT is DAYS '1,163 30 Gutierrez Show To Open Paintings by the popular San Antonio watercolorist Raul Gutierrez will go on exhibit Thursday at Hall's Gallery, 4012 34th St. Gutierrez, a former newspaper cartoonist, paints finely detailed scenes of the Southwest. Eleven years ago lie sold his paintings for 510 in San Antonio's annual starving artists show. Today his work is eagerly sought by gallery managers and collectors. Thursday's preview exhibition will take place between the hours of 8 and 10 p.m., with the artist in attendance. The show will remain on view at Hall's 34(h Street Gallery until 1 p.m. Saturday. It then will be moved to Hall's South Plains Mall location for viewing April 14-19. In an article in the November, 1974, issue of Southwest Art magazine, Gutierrez explained why he works in watercolor: an artist can do things in that medium he can't do in oil. He gave as examples the ability to work in detail and depth at the same time and to work with two or three coats at the same time, and the capability of creating hairline detail. Every blade of grass in a Gutierrez painting is realistically rendered. Colors are muted, except for an occasional flash of red on a passing cardinal, for example. "Some artists kill themselves (artistically) by trying to work too fast to make a lot of money," Gutierrez was quoted in the Southwest Art story, "and they lose the quality of their work. "This year I can't keep up with my sales, and some buyers are waiting two and a half to three months for paintings, because I want the painting to be done as well as I can do it." Gutierrez lives on a ranch north of San Antonio, sharing the environment with wildlife and his studio with books on wildlife and waterfowl. His paintings are done on hot pressed, 100 percent ragboard in watercolors and acrylics. Gutierrez is married and has three daughters.
