Curated by the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market, Against the Grain: Art of the Counterculture shines a spotlight on punk's current impact on art.

Mujeres - Curated by Eva Loayza

September 6- October 1, 2016 ( Opening Reception - September 10, 6-8pm )

 

The Mujeres Exhibition shows the complexity and range of Latina women and Latino culture in the United States. This all female exhibition demonstrates that we are more than feisty, fiery, spicy and all the other adjectives that have been assigned to us by mainstream culture; that we are more than the limited portrayals in the media by featuring Latina artists of different backgrounds, experiences and mediums.

Latinas have been over sexualized and oversimplified. As one study put it, "one may infer that Latinas are overly sensual but also religious, conservative and family oriented. They have a Spanish accent and a homogeneous look...In fact, Latinas are a heterogeneous group with different levels of assimilation in the USA, dis-similar cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, and diverse physical builds.”

As Latinos, we are often lumped under a title that’s so vast that our individuality is lost. We come from different countries, some of us directly, others through family ties. We have our own dialects, our own food, our own holidays and traditions. While language and cultural similarities bond us, we are uniquely different. We hope to put this diversity on display with Mujeres.

 

La Exhibición Mujeres demuestra la complejidad y el alcance de la mujer latina y la cultura latina en los Estados Unidos. Esta exhibición totalmente femenina demuestra que las mujeres somos mucho más que luchadoras, ardientes, picantes y todos los demás adjetivos que se nos han asignado por la cultura dominante; que somos más que la limitada representación de artistas latinas en los medios de comunicación, de diferentes orígenes, experiencias y medios.

Las latinas han sido sobre sexualizadas y sobre simplificadas. Como indicó un estudio, "se puede inferir que las latinas son excesivamente sensuales, sino también religiosas, conservadoras y orientadas a la familia. Tienen un acento español y un aspecto homogéneo “... De hecho, las latinas son un grupo heterogéneo con diferentes niveles de asimilación de los EE.UU., disímiles antecedentes culturales y socioeconómicos, y diversa constitución física.

Como latinas, con frecuencia nos agrupamos un poco bajo algo que es tan vasto, que nuestra individualidad se pierde. Venimos de diferentes países, algunas de nosotras directamente, otras a través de lazos familiares. Tenemos nuestros propios dialectos, nuestras propias fiestas y tradiciones. Mientras que el lenguaje y similitudes culturales nos unen, somos únicas y diferentes. Esperamos poner esta diversidad en la pantalla con Mujeres.

 Evolution - Abelardo Montano

November 12 - December 11, 2016 ( Opening Reception - November 12, 6-8pm )

“Evolution” represents not only my own progression as an artist, but also the inevitable influence and opportunities that digitalization has brought into the art world.  One of my main concerns as an artist is to maintain the “human touch” and to avoid the “coldness” that digital work can convey while trying to be true to my own style.  I believe that art is successful only if it is able to provoke a thought, a feeling, or emotion, and I aim to achieve this through composition, color and texture
