Performance artists, fashion, music, street life.These cultural aspects of Chicano life are missing from the mainstream picture of what Mexican-American art is, according to Henry A.J. Ramos, Studios on the Park's artistic director and chief curator.
Studios on the Park’s Sept. 2020 show, featured in the Gallery’s Studio 4, will highlight important but critically overlooked photographic works by select Mexican American producers of the past four decades: Sean Carrillo, Marisela Norte and Daniel Villarreal.
Studios on the Park in downtown Paso Robles is continuing its series of contemporary art exhibitions in the main Atrium Gallery with a news showing of regional sculpture and pottery called, The Shape of Human Expression: Sculpture and Pottery of the Central Coast.
Art can be an inspiration, a distraction, and an interaction. Studios on the Park's first show since being closed for nearly three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Reweaving Our Social Fabric, will offer all three.
It may seem like the whole world is essentially shut down, but artists are busily making art, galleries are working hard to find ways to connect to patrons and art lovers, and the work of art education marches on in many different forms.
