Location: Dustin M. Sekula Memorial Library
We welcome the two featured artists from our September Jardin del Arte as they share their exhibits here at the Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library until November 6th.
BEATRIZ GUZMÁN VELÁSQUEZ is an interdisciplinary artist born in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The border crossing of Reynosa-Hidalgo has seen her grow up slowly giving her sorrow and happiness. Writing and producing art, pauses her past to give her time to take in the hardships she has experienced and seen at the border.
“Campo Santos in the Borderlands” the art exhibit of BEATRIZ GUZMÁN VELÁSQUEZ
Imanol Miranda is a local photographer interested in recording images with social and cultural significance to the Rio Grande Valley. He mainly captures moments in ordinary settings as they occur although he sometimes directs his subjects to pose. Miranda captures symbols that may represent the Valley but does not always make them obvious in his compositions. He wants to leave room for ambiguity.
Born in Mexico City, Miranda moved with his family to the Rio Grande Valley at the age of 13. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of Texas Pan-American in 2009 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art. Shortly after completing college, he embarked on the long-term project to document life in the Valley, a project that continues to this date. In June of this year, the South Texas Technology Campus in McAllen featured his first solo exhibition. Miranda believes that the Valley offers an abundance of interesting subject matter.
“Life in the Valley II” photo exhibition of IMANOL MIRANDA will be displayed as well.
Come listen to both these great talents from the RGV as they present their work on Tuesday, October 29th from 6 pm to 8 pm.
