Fall 2016 events

I often get asked about my shows by friends or people who just met me. They will see my card or hear that I’m an artist and ask “where can I see your art work?” I respond with “you can see some of my work in town at Joe Borrelli’s Chestnut Hill Gallery, the Pennsylvania State Museum’s (five year exhibit), or my studio.” Any new, upcoming exhibits?…

I usually find myself exhibiting in the fall for Hispanic Month or spring for Women’s Month. It is what it is, just a fact.  I’m happy exhibiting once or twice a year with the rest of the time focusing on art making.

This past spring I had the great opportunity to share my work with fellow archived artist, Lilliana Wilson at the University of Texas at Austin, The fall exhibitions had one  Latino themed exhibit and one of political social justice. The group shows I was involved in this year has given me the opportunity to meet artists outside my circle as well as reunite me with old friends.

Here are a few pictures of the exhibitions and my fellow artists. Special thanks to the artists for sharing your art, and friends and family for coming by to see the work. Your presence and support matters and is truly appreciated.
