Latin American: Toward an Apollonian Expression
Sept. 13—Oct. 11, 2008
Opening reception: Sat., Sept. 13, 7—10 p.m.

Press release

The purpose of Latin American: Toward an Apollonian Expression, presented by Latins in the Borough Art Gallery, is to provide the citizens of South Eastern of CT with a better knowledge about the diversity and widely creative works of high quality made by artists from different countries and a wide range of backgrounds, but with one thing in common: the same language. The project adds visibility to the cultural heritage of SEC and its people. Each artist has developed a thematic line, which is far from the descriptive style; it shows the essence and depth of beings and myths, topics and concerns of the men of all times, of universal men.

The show features Latin American artists Guido Garaycochea (Web, see accompanying image, "Night's Journey"), Jaime Romero, Pedro Hernandez, Juan Bernal, Lilian Cuenca and Carmen Gloria Maristany.

They are especially interested in uncovering endless material expressions. Their purpose is to discover innovative and unusual factors that are potentially in the elements chosen for their work.

"These artists possess the faculty of making people perceive the micro-cosmos lodged in the abstract spaces of reality. It is as if they wished to look for inspiration in the text provided by nature."

There will be an opening reception for this show tonight at the Hygienic Art Gallery, from 7—10 p.m.
