About the Exhibit...
There is a magical presence in this exhibition of seven Latin American artists: Pedro Fuertes, Dora Lopez, Rigo Peralta, Orlando Rafael Quevedo, Carlos Solis, Juan Ramiro Torres, and Ricardo Viera.
Each artist explores his or her own truth that is rooted in tradition, culture, nature, and tremendous skill, yet all transcend that reality in a distinctive enchanted style. Whether the vision is expressed through abstraction, surrealism or scrutiny, the result is a unique reality that can only live in the land of art.
The Gallery at Penn State Lehigh Valley is honored to host this exquisite collection by artists who represent Cuba, Dominican Republic, Peru and Venezuela.
Thank you to Rigo Peralta, resident artist at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem and Ricardo Viera, professor of art and Director/Curator of the Lehigh University Art Galleries in Bethlehem for offering their curatorial talents in organizing this exhibition.
