Guest curator Eric Almanza ‘04, a CSUDH alumnus and painter whose works will also be on display. He has selected the following artists whose work focuses on migration and immigration: Nery Gabriel Lemus, Oscar Magallanes, Antonio Pelayo, Eric Almanza and San Jose pure-fiber artist Consuelo Jimenez Underwood.
The Ave 50 Studio is proud to present Oscar Magallanes and Ricardo Estrada in a two-person show opening on Saturday, April 13th (7pm-10pm). Magallanes and Estrada have gained quite a reputation as young, up-and-coming Angelenos making noise in the art world. Please come out for what will most certainly be a fresh and exciting show.
Oscar’s recent work is an ongoing series of portraits that serves as a mapping of the artist’s own psyche through his cultural, historical and political influences. Titled “Heuristic” the portraits also serve as an exploration of the make up of popular culture and people’s movements.
Humanist artist, Ricardo Estrada, paints portraits of the downtrodden. Yet, in lieu of passing judgement, his work portrays honorable and distinguished pride.
