Remember that call for Hispanic artists to participate in a show at the Metro Arts Gallery? They got quite a response, and the opening reception is this Friday. After that, the show runs through October 7.
Among the nineteen names listed, I knew Veda and Prado were local artists, but I was pleasantly surprised to see other names such as Cunza (NAHCC), Gonzalez-Nylander (works in video production), Griffin (I thought this was Mary's John Griffin at first), and Negri (Tom's wife).
Here is the official invite:
In partnership with the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to promote and feature the work of local Hispanic visual artists the Metro Arts Gallery presents “Nueva Vida, Nuevo Trabajo” (translated as new life, new work) which highlights the work of professional and non-professional artists from Nashville’s growing and diverse Hispanic population. Work will be featured by professional and emerging artists including, Orlando García Camacho, Antonieta Capdevila, Aida Costner, Yuri Cunza, Adolfo Dávila, Gladys Escobar, Gil Veda, Alba Gonzalez-Nylander, John D. Griffin, Megan Kelley, Zolita Mojica, Mario Moreno, Inés Negri, Jairo Prado, Mike Quiñones Gonzalez, Sandra Rivera, Kathryn García Smith, Liliana Vélez and Yenny Walker.
