PAST: Artist Panels: Studio Gallery hosts talks with artists from the "Melting Pot" Show WED & THURS, Jan 19 & 20th 7:00pm - 9:00pm, Free
Painters, pacifists, revolutionists and dreamers have all contributed to the beauty of art and culture in America. Studio Gallery applauds the unique American spirit in this show featuring the diverse work of artists all informed or influenced by the immigrant experience. From the political posters of Favianna Rodriguez and Cesar Maxit to the quiet traditional Korean Pojagi of Susan Cho, from the paintings using iconic images of Joan Belmar to the activist mixed media paintings of Shahla Arbabi, all the artists interpret their heritage, create a shared identity and present their experience of living in the United States.
Artists include Shahla Arbabi, Joan Belmar, Jon Benjamin, Graham Boyle, Susan Cho, Natalie Guerrieri, Esther Hidalgo, Juan Hernandez, Linda Hesh, Cesar Maxit, Favianna Rodriguez, Lou Stovall, Aniekan Udofia, Solomon Wondimu. The artwork in the exhibition spans many movements in art including painting, printmaking, installation, mixed media and photography.
