in San Antonio
Justin Parr is a contemporary artist, glass blower, photographer, and gallery owner from San Antonio, Texas. He is the caretaker and artist-in-residence in the historic Hot Wells Hotel Ruins on the San Antonio River. His gallery, FL!GHT, run alongside senior co-conspirator Ed Saavedra, has been a staple of the San Antonio contemporary art scene for 18 years and counting, bringing a refreshing outsider perspective to the community and continuing to grow from there. His distinctive glass work always includes some imperfections to them that only make them more desirable, and his blown marbles are literally hunted for throughout the country, in a group that numbers online in the thousands.
