The Americas: Our Stories / Las Americas: Nuestras Historias
June 14 - August 31, 2019
… an international group exhibition of prints by artist members of PrintMatters Houston and artist members of La Estampa from Medellin, Colombia
Cindy Lisica Gallery in partnership with PrintMatters Houston for the PrintHouston 2019 Biennial is pleased to present The Americas: Our Stories / Las Americas: Nuestras Historias, an international group exhibition of prints by artist members of PrintMatters Houston and artist members of La Estampa from Medellin, Colombia, opening Friday, June 14, 2019.
The Americas: Our Stories / Las Americas: Nuestras Historias, is an art exhibition that brings together many different printmaking techniques, many different artistic styles, and many different voices from two different countries- two different continents. Yet, out of the many disparate stories conveyed through the universal bridge that is the language of art, we are invited to the idea that walls can be torn down and conversations can be had. Led by the story from each piece of art, this timely exhibition reveals a patchwork of human experiences that on the surface are alien from another but in their essence are of the same story that is the human spirit.
