Hispanic Heritage Celebration Art Exhibit in Gaithersburg

The City of Gaithersburg is hosting a Hispanic Heritage art exhibit at Bohrer Park (506 S Frederick Ave) now through November 21. There will be a reception to meet the artists tonight from 7-8:30pm.

Per the City of Gaithersburg:

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the City welcomes the “Hispanic Heritage Celebration” art exhibit to the Activity Center at Bohrer Park through November 21, 2021. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Thursday, September 23, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Masks are required. Social distancing & limited capacity protocols are in place.

Collage artist & special guest curator Roxana Rojas-Luzon has invited artists whose works communicate what it means to be part of the Hispanic culture. Rojas-Luzon says she is excited with the prospect of bringing together artists whose work she knows and loves. “I have chosen artists from the following Hispanic countries: Argentina, Venezuela, Peru, Costa Rica, Uruguay & Chile,” said Rojas-Luzon. “I found that this group of artists, with different stories and experiences, helps to represent the vast Hispanic diversity. Each is different from the other in terms of style, theme, technique & use of color. But, they have something in common & that is their great creativity. Each one, through their work, generates positive energy, a sensation of beauty & strong emotions. Together they represent the spirit of our Latin roots brought to this country that has welcomed us & is now our home.”

Featured artists include Maria Luisa Benavides, Tony Brun, David Camero, Cristina Debernardi, Carla Duran, Felisa Federman, Mita Lazarte & Francisca Oviedo. There are 50 pieces in the exhibit, including works in oil, acrylics, watercolor, colored pencil & mixed media.
