From the gallery:
Announcing our newest solo exhibition, ‘ANTICUADO’ (Antiquated) by Javier Arreguin Villegas

Javier Arreguin Villegas is a mixed media artist using fabric, cardboard, furniture wood (MDF) for carving and water based ink for xylographics on paper. Javier’s work is autobiographical and utilizes fictional/symbolistic imagery to express narratives, memories and storytelling from a young brown father’s retrospective. Through his work he hopes to deconstruct, process, heal and reclaim/reconnect to a communal voice, narrative and spaces that showcase resistance & resilience.

“My art is my guide to navigate the world, to maintain my authenticity and give back something meaningful to things that I value and really sympathize with.”

‘ANTICUADO’ (Antiquated) Solo Exhibition by Javier Arreguin Villegas will be on display June 26 - August 20. Viewable by appointment.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending. Check local COVID-19 restrictions and updates.
