Hooks-Epstein Galleries presents "Domestic Zen" and "Obras, Obrero" opening reception
"Domestic Zen" by Mayuko Ono Gray combines East and West, reflecting a life that is both, culturally Japanese and American. Her graphite drawings, which are meticulously rendered in chiaroscuro, consist of Japanese writings intertwined into a single strand; this strand illustrates a Japanese proverb or one of Gray's ow"n poems.
"Obras, Obrero" is the first solo gallery show of emerging artist, Marcos Hernandez. His work draws from his background as the son of a construction worker and a housekeeper, and as one who crossed the border at age 8 and spent the next decade living as an undocumented immigrant.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until August 11.
