Artist Guido Mena Creates Vivid Works in a Single Sitting
"You're trying to create an illusion on two-dimensional paper, and like a magician, if you try to explain what you're doing, you take away that illusion," Mena said.
He is one of six artists who will be featured as part of the Contemporary Expressions exhibit at the Cremata Gallery this Friday. Each artist's unique vision contributes a piece of a hexagon to explore the dynamics of contemporary art. The exhibit will run in conjunction with Viernes Culturales and feature the works of multicultural artists including Cristina Alzualde (Argentina), Carolina De Panfilis (Venezuela), Astolfo Fuenes (Venezuela), Katiuska Gonzalez (Venezuela), and Rocio Granados (Spain).
Contemporary Expressions opens Friday, September 12 and runs through Wednesday, October 10 at Cremata Gallery, 1646 SW Eighth Street, Miami. Opening reception is September 14 from 7 to 10 p.m. Open Friday, September 28 for Viernes Culturales/Cultural Friday's Art Walk from 7 to 11 p.m. For more information call 305-644-3315.
