?: Prints from Puerto Rico to San Antonio, highlights serigraphs from Puerto Rico produced from the 1950s to the present alongside contemporary prints from San Antonio artists.
The exhibition features the work of master Puerto Rican printmaker Antonio Martorell, his students from the collective workshop Taller Alacrán, and his contemporaries, including renowned artists Lorenzo Homar, Rafael Tufiño, and José Rosa Castellanos. It also showcases prints by San Antonio artists Richard Armendariz, Joe Harjo, Juan de Dios Mora, Andrei Rentería, Ethel Shipton, and Gary Sweeney, who use text with aesthetic purpose to visually communicate their engagement with current state of affairs, encompassing political, cultural, and socioeconomic concerns.
The exhibit was coordinated in partnership with the Puerto Rican Heritage Society of San Antonio and showcases works from Antonio Martorell’s personal collection, the University of New Mexico’s Sam L. Slick Collection of Latin American and Iberian Posters, and from the Museum of History, Anthropology, and Art, University of Puerto Rico. The exhibit was curated by Dr. Teresa Eckmann of the UTSA Department of Art and Art History.
We will host an Artist Reception with Maestro Martorell on Tuesday, November 14 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
