Below is the announcement for the symposium featuring my artwork!
I am honored to be an exhibiting artist in the We Are You Project International Traveling Exhibition. I was chosen to participate in 2011, and exhibited artwork in New York City for the first time as part of the We Are You Project and the Wilmer Jennings Gallery at Kenkeleba in March 2012. It was my first time visiting the East Coast as well, it was a pleasure to be warmly received by people such as Dr. José Rodeiro and meet artists Raul Villarreal, Duda Penteado, Nelson Alvarez, and many other well known artists, several who are also professors and very respected members of their community. Also representing the West Coast in WAY Project are Efren Alvarez and Gabriel Navar, both from California. Below is a photo of some of us from our reunion after the exhibition at the Joyce Gordon Gallery in Oakland in July 2013. We were treated to a beautiful view of Oakland, California by Eric Murphy of the Joyce Gordon Gallery followed by a special art tour so secret we had to photoshop the background.
