Diversity + Richness

Diversity and Richness features artwork by artists from Sawyer Yards with connections to Latin American culture in conjunction with LAN! Curated by Rosa Ana Orlando.

This exhibition explores the rich diversity found in the work produced by artists connected to Latin American culture exploring three main themes; The Real, The Magic, and The Abstract.

LAN!, a signature event of the Inter-University for Latino Research consortium and hosted by the University of Houston Center for Mexican American Studies, explores and celebrates Latino/a/x and Latin American visual artists in the United States while advancing awareness, education, scholarship, and knowledge. In 2019, Houston will serve as the fifth US city to host such an effort that targets both local and national audiences. Participation in LAN! is a huge opportunity for Sawyer Yards. This initiative is supported by the City of Houston, University of Houston, the Smithsonian Institute, and other major arts institutions in the city.

"Personal Scapes; Recent Prints" Solo Art Show at Galveston Arts Center . January 14th to February 26th

Galveston Arts Center (GAC) presents two solo exhibitions opening Saturday, January 14, 2017.

Opening event

Saturday January 14th 6:00 to 9:00 PM

Artist talks beginning at 6:30 PM.

In the downstairs gallery, Guts and Bone by Jonathan Leach utilizes hard edge painting techniques to conform and control the fluidity of internal and external references in paintings and sculpture.

In both upstairs galleries, Personal Scapes: Recent Prints by Luisa Duarte includes a series of abstract geometric monotypes, digital prints, and small sculptures.

In addition, Beyond Bindings: The Book as Art will be on view in the upstairs Pop-Up Gallery.

Jonathan Leach focuses on finding balance between internal and external influences in his exhibition Guts and Bone. 

Born in Venezuela, Luisa Duarte is a visual artist who lives in Houston, TX and has extensive ties to Latin America. With her formal training in architecture, Luisa found early inspiration in the geometric abstraction movement, all of which is loosely referenced in her work. Her exhibition, Personal Scapes, includes a series of monotypes, digital prints and small sculptures. 

The galleries and the ArtWorks Museum Store are open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00 PM. Admission is free at all times.
