With 35 works “A Movement in Two Parts” is to date the largest public exhibition by Oscar.
I am sad to say that Sam Coronado passed away November 11th. I had the honor of working with Sam and the great staff from the Serie Project while on a short residency in May of this year. Sam was an accomplished artist and tireless promoter of the arts. He was the founder of the Serie Project and Coronado Studio, co-founder of Mexic-Arte Museum, and a contributor to many other organizations and worked closely with many artists.

Estampas de la Raza: Contemporary Prints from the Romo Collection
July 6 to Sept. 29, 2013
This survey of Latino and Chicano printmakers chronicles the late 1960s at the outset of the Chicano Movement to the confident expressions of the 2000s. The prints represent the issues of self identity, the Chicano struggle for social, economic, and political equality, traditions and memories that keep the culture alive, icons—secular and spiritual—that serve as signposts for the community, and other points of view that suggest new directions for evolution of the culture.
Estampas de la Raza: Contemporary Prints from the Romo Collection comprises more than 60 prints chronicling the Latino experience in the U.S. The exhibition covers five distinct themes: “Identity,” “Struggle,” “Tradition, Culture, Memory,” “Icons,” and “Other Voices.” The exhibit features 44 artists, including John A. Hernandez, Luis Alfonso Jiménez, Oscar Magallanes, Leticia V. Huerta, Juan Miguel Ramos, Alex Rubio, Vincent Valdez, Joe Lopez, Michael Menchaca, Rolando Briseño, and Celina Hinojosa do San Antonio.
This gallery contains 22 photos.

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.
