Curated by Artist, Gallery Night supporter and Celebrity GuideLiliana Fijman.

Liliana’s statement,                                                                                                                            As an artist and as an immigrant I focused on how origins and culture influence the visual Art form; how do intangible feelings, language and traditions become tangible through the “magic” of creative hands? How does an artist become an artist by simply doing? I invite you to ponder these Questions as you focus your eye on each one of these dedicated artist’s, works, and think about each artist’s roots and their choice of visual language

There is a guest artist from Argentina Carmen Oliveto. Carmen’s work was done especially for this exhibition. She was inspired by Italo Calvino ‘s book: INVISIBLE CITIES. Each work is named after one of the cities Calvino created in his book.  As well as local Latino artists Evans Molina, Tamara Diaz, and Nilton Cardenas.

Tamara Diaz

Tamara Diaz, this selection of art examines the constant changes of roles that one plays in their life and what it takes to maintain it.  Some of the works depict healers and/or those who may be suffering.  The Virgincita, the patron saint of Mexico, often appears to provide guidance and comfort.  The tropical colors often helps to transform the difficult subject matter.
