About the exhibit:
This is an exhibition featuring contemporary elements associated with the tradition of printmaking (lithographs, linocuts, etchings, monoprints, and other techniques). Different styles of print mediums are popular among emerging audiences, and each medium brings a unique perspective of creativeness, overlapping techniques and methods. We are inviting the public to take a moment to explore and support the artists and their unique art visions.
Featuring Artists: Christina Cardenas, Damian Charette, Emily Costello, Jesus Cruz, Joe Ray, Marco Albarran, Monica Gisel Crespo, Ruben Galicia, Frank Gonzales, Gabriela Munoz, and Martin Moreno.
About Sagrado Galleria: Our mission is grounded in the belief that artists have access to the collective wisdom of our ancestors and through their creativity they reveal fundamental truths about our pasado, presente, y futuro. Arte is an integral part of our lives and when shared in a space that provides the ideal background for enabling art to take center stage within the community it creates individual growth, cultural awareness, and economic development. The Sagrado supports the artist community and promotes the importance of the inter-generational sharing of the arts through, exhibitions, workshops and special cultural events.
