The artists featured in NVC’s Fotoseptiembre exhibition live and work in Texas. Anthony Francis, a portrait photographer, uses the medium to address the ‘poetic experience of my black experience.’ Scott Martin is ‘interested in the structures humankind creates– where…and what they say about their creators when they are gone.’ Daniela Riojas captures her performative installations on film, exploring concepts of ancestry, ritual and personal history.

About Palmetto 

The Palmetto Center for the Arts opened in 2009 as a product of community leadership, vision and unwavering determination to bring fine and performing arts to the Northwest area of San Antonio. The arts complex offers the finest facility and programs to those who join us in celebrating the arts.

The fine and performing arts programs at Northwest Vista College engage students and enrich their skills needed to give life to creative impulses—on stage, in the studio, and in the concert hall. Our emerging artists interact and learn from community professionals and visiting artists from across the country and abroad. 


Our Goal

We believe that the arts have always been and always will be a meaningful force in human life. Northwest Vista College is dedicated to making the arts a living presence within our neighboring communities. Art lovers who support the development of artists help to enrich the human experience. 

Our goal is to cultivate the imagination and technical skills of artists who will reinvigorate existing works and create new masterpieces that will grip the heart and thrill the mind. We welcome the diversity that sustains our community and empowers our voice through art and artistry.
