Art opening reception: Elvira Sarmiento: Alludere Posada

Photo by Elvira Sarmiento

An homage to Mexican icon Jose Guadalupe Posada by contemporary artist and printmaker Elvira Sarmiento, this exhibit is a collection of 29 prints in three series composed in solarplate and photopolymer plate techniques with chine collé or gold leaf.

These prints allude to the social deterioration in a reflective analysis of society applied to fictitious and contemporary stories. Works are accompanied by text depicting irony and satire. Sarmiento finds a physical place within images to recreate a commentary as social narrator just as Posada was known for being a social critic and craftsman of images.

On view through Feb. 1, 2014.
