Panel and Q&A with “Contrapunto” Artists
From the venue:
In connection with the Oglethorpe University Museum of Art’s latest exhibition, “Contrapunto: Works by a Contemporary Latin American Artist Collective,” the museum will welcome six artists from the Atlanta-based collective for a panel and Q&A. The artists will discuss how Latin American culture and history influence their work.
The Contrapunto artists immigrated to the United States from five countries and employ a range of contemporary styles: Carlos Solis of Venezuela constructs vivid, surrealist landscapes; Pedro Fuertes and Dora Lopez of Peru and Jorge Arcos of Mexico paint in colorful abstractions; and Melvin Toledo of Nicaragua and Catalina Gomez Beuth of Columbia capture essences through portraiture and still life.
