UPCOMING SHOW: The Art of Robert Juarez

with 2 comments

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 5th, 2011 6pm – 10pm

Artist Bio:

Robert Juarez was born in San Francisco in 1961. A self-taught artist and tattooist, Robert utilizes the materials available to him within the California Federal prison system, in which he is incarcerated.  Exquisitely detailed drawings of  ballpoint ink on cotton handkerchiefs illustrate Latino cultural iconography and historical Mexican imagery, blended seamlessly together to form a subtle and vibrant collage.  Robert’s work is poignant and subtle.  There is a technical prowess with limited materials which inspires closer inspection.  As a young child and teenager, Robert spent extensive time vacationing in Mexico where he personally studied the art and glyphs of the Aztec and Mayan pyramids, opening a door of artistic inspiration which influences much of his work today.  Do not miss this opportunity to see and experience this beautiful and mysterious artwork.

The exhibition runs November 5th, 2011 – November 30th, 2011

Gallery Hours: Monday – Sunday 12pm – 8pm
