Saturday, October 18th
6:30pm - 8:30pm

Read more about the artist, Mark 
Parascandola. The exhibition will feature approximately ten prints from the artist’s current project, La Chanca: Living on the Margin. The photographs will be accompanied by a video revealing the shifting patterns and juxtapositions that unfold through the neighborhood’s narrow, winding streets. La Chanca is a historically impoverished zone made up of small dwellings built into the hillside on the outskirts of the city of Almería in southern Spain. The inhabitants painted their homes using whatever ingredients were available, resulting in a multicolored patchwork. Over the years, the zone has attracted writers, artists, and photographers inspired by its unique urban structure and cultural mix. Read more about the exhibit here. Gallery Hours: Fridays and Saturdays 11:00am -  6:00pm and by appointment.
