The City of San Antonio’s Department of Arts & Culture invites the community to explore two new exhibits at Centro de Artes Gallery, located in San Antonio’s Historic Market Square. Centro de Artes, a gallery free and open to the public, is dedicated to telling the story of the Latino experience in the United States. The two separate, yet equally inspiring, exhibits by artists Leila Hernández and Elizabeth Jiménez Montelongo are on display August 9 to December 30, 2022 throughout gallery’s two large floors.
The first-floor features Leila Hernández’s exhibition La Visa Negra 2.5: Tendiendo los Trapitos al Sol, which features a sustainable, recycled art created from repurposed clothing and transformed into series of textile tapestries, framed quilts and paintings. This show includes a collection of narratives dealing with time, identity and place via the cultural crossover between South Texas and Northern Mexico.Hernández’s exhibition is a salute to the sweat and tears of contemporary, resilient immigrants who are forging their new lives through hard work.
