Elizabeth Jiminez

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.

On the second floor, Elizabeth Jiménez Montelongo’s The Euphoric Dance of the Unconquered Mind features textured oil paintings of Mexika dancers that exude movement, energy and power to celebrate the continued tradition of Indigenous dance ceremony. To create the work, Jiménez Montelongo cropped and combined her own photographs of dancers in movement and rendered the composition on canvas, applying paint with a palette knife for a thick impasto. The vibrantly colored paintings celebrate mental liberation and honor our indigenous ancestors.
