Arte Chicano de San Vicente @ SC Museum


All Day Event: Oct 18, 2017
 
Occurs every: Every 1 Day(s)
 
The exhibition Arte Chicano de San Vicente 2017, featuring artwork by Dayna Griego, Peter Garcia, and Ruben Gonzales will be on view September 22 – December 10, 2017 at the Silver City Museum.

Please also plan to join us for a special reception for the artists on November 1, 2017, 3:30-5:30pm.

Artwork in a variety of media and styles highlight the range and talent of area Chicano artists. Ruben Gonzales, now deceased, worked in the mines and turned to art later in life. He became artist-in-residence at Western New Mexico University and influenced the students and faculty there. Assemblage sculptures created with found materials are among his best known works.

Artist and activist Peter Garcia is a former resident of Silver City, currently residing in Las Cruces. He is known for papel picado and works on paper more generally. He also creates digital art from scans of work he starts on paper.

Dayna Griego grew up in Albuquerque, traveled the world, and now lives in the Arenas Valley. Expressionistic, from the heart, Griego currently creates art in glass, ceramic, paint, and print.

All three create artwork in mixed and varying media.

Please also plan to join us for a special reception for the artists on November 1, 2017, 3:30-5:30pm.

Invited: Everyone
