If you love tech and art, make plans to see Sloan Foster's next art show
When Sloan Foster, the vice president of marketing for HBMG, decided to move to Austin, not only did San Antonio lose a great tech marketer, it also lost an outstanding artist. However, Alamo City techies and art patrons can travel to Austin for Sloan's next major art show. Her outstanding photograhpic work will be shown June 4th at the United Art Authority, 510 W. 29th Street from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
As someone who has worked with her for several years, I have seen many of her images. Sloan is the rare person who can convey the beauty of a flower bud or a dragonfly with her cameras.
Still, it's a loss for San Antonio's tech community in that she left for Austin. Those of us who live in the southern part of the Austantonio region can take comfort in that Sloan is only an hour's drive away. And, when she's not shooting pictures, she is helping the two cities colloborate on technology.
