Revisit Combines Two Art Shows at South Broadway Cultural Center

Community exhibition features work by several artists.

September 29, 2021 - Two art exhibitions originally scheduled for the KiMo Theatre earlier this year now make up Revisit, on view through October 15 at the South Broadway Cultural Center. An artist reception open to the public will take place Thursday, Sept. 30 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Revisit combines Treatment, curated by local artist Bearface, and Altars: Ancient Practice, Contemporary Creations featuring the work of Ramiro Romero Garza and Dr. Suzanne Lopez.

Treatment Is the word that best describes the physical and material process of the four emerging artists featured in the show: Bearface, Garret Jones, Omen, and Ronald Maldonado. Each artist states that graffiti is the dominating influence of their development as artists. Each artist employs a variety of techniques in their art making. Color and abstract experimentation become the common denominator of their outcomes. Materials in the end define the treatment of the mixed media works and composition. These aspects included using repurposed objects.

Altars: Ancient Practice, Contemporary Creations is comprised of installations by Garza and Lopez that reference altars. Garza’s constructs are auto-biographical and personal reflections on how he views the world. Lopez’s altars/installations venture toward a spiritual awareness for the past and present. The two unique and creative Hispanic artists have created extraordinary altars to memorialize events, Mexican history and to inspire and celebrate sacred images of the divine feminine: both uses found and repurposed objects in a variety of materials with both ancient and contemporary twists.

South Broadway Cultural Center hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
