It’s a rainy Friday morning and we are standing in the absolutely stunning gallery at the Mexican American Cultural Center, a several year old cultural project created through the City of Austin. We are speaking with Herlinda Zamora, the Exhibits Coordinator here at the MACC. The room is high, open and inviting. The work on the walls, a new exhibit called Reflections, by up and coming artist Sergio Rodriguez, literally leaps off the canvas and assaults the senses. His pictures are brilliant and colorful , haunting and deep.
On a promotional flier for the exhibit, Rodriguez is quoted as saying “If asked as a spectator to comment on my work I’d say that it feels like a cusp, a point where the known and unknown merge, where the tangible and obscure collide, where established means are put through the fire of change and infused with the energy of tomorrow.”
The opening reception for Reflections is January 30,this Saturday, at 6 pm in the Main Gallery. A Gallery talk will be held Saturday February 6th at 2 pm. Workshops with the artist are in the planning stages for March.
If you haven’t been to the MACC, Go. Its a beautiful space full of some new, exciting work that you should be sure to see, as well as numerous additional programs for the whole community.
Highly recommended by the Cultural Alliance Staff.
