Filipino-American artist T.Jay Santa Ana opens a new solo show of works in San Ysidro's BLK Box Gallery, opening Saturday and running through May 3. This show features a combination of site-specific mural installations and canvas pieces. Santa Ana's work is packed full of (here's that word again) gesture — these pieces evoke street art and graffiti as much as they seem like ancient brushstroke lettering. Santa Ana is as much at home painting a wall mural, a finely detailed ink drawing, or with a digital piece.

Buy a ticket in advance for the opening reception, which will feature live music, drinks and vendors. There'll be DJ sets with Red Martinez and a live performance from Ruby Clouds, which is a sibling duo from San Ysidro and Tijuana.

Listen to their latest track, last summer's "Mi Corazón te Busca."

Details: Saturday at 7 p.m. 102 East Park Ave., San Ysidro. $5.
