The Digital Art Guild of San Diego presents “Without Limits: A Latin American Slant”

The Expressions of Mexico Gallery provides a wealth of perspectives of what is Mexican and Latin American in art.

Carmen Velazquez, the gallery owner, is taking a new step. Her gallery will host the Digital Art Guild with an innovative blending of Latin American concepts, ideas and temperaments.

Imagine art that is re-energized with new digital imaging media. Truly, this would anticipate the title of the show, Without Limits: A Latin American slant. John Valois and George Zucconi will join Carmen Velazquez in curating the show.

Two members of the Digital Art Guild illustrate the range of personal history and art styles that will be on exhibit at this show. Ileana Frómeta Grillo was born in Caracas, Venezuela uses both photographic and painting skills to create dramatic images of what might thought to be commonplace settings, such as her Morning Greeting.

Joe Nalven, a native New Yorker, gained his appreciation of Latin America, Mexico and Barrio Logan here in San Diego in his research and work. He captures the sensuality of a Mexican dancer at one of our trolley stops, Querida Pared.

The Without Limits show opens on Saturday, May 13th with an artists’ reception from 5 to 8 pm. The show runs through June 7th.

Expressions of Mexico is collaborating with digital art shows and events this spring with this delightful showcase. Visit the Digital Art Guild webzine for all of these shows at www.digitalartguild.com
