On January 7, 2010 I had the great privilege of attending the opening of the Latino Artists at the University of Connecticut exhibition. I was fortunate to be asked to participate in this exhibition and I am so glad I accepted. The opening party was fantastic with over 200 people attending. The 8 artists that were exhibiting were also in attendance and I am glad I got to talk to them and also take pictures with them. Some are very established in the art world while others are the rising stars of today. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful exhibition and the great foods supplied by our sponsor restaurants DeMaya, Tacos Guadalajara and Quechua Restaurant.
The event also had great Music by Manos del Candombe and a beautiful color catalog with images of all the art and artists in the event. Participating artists were Jose Acosta, Claudio N. Altesor, Ed Bianchi, Rosa E. Col_n, Duvian Montoya, Hern_n Restrepo, Arnaldo Ugarte and Inés Villanueva.
The exhibition was a collaborative effort between University of Connecticut and Vida Social Magazine. The curator of this exhibition was Tatiana Mori a fellow Latina and UCONN alumni. Special thanks to Dr. Michael Ego, Professor of Family Studies at UCONN and Tamara Guevara, Chief Editor of Vida Social magazine. I would also like to thank all guests who attended and showed their support for the arts.
This was the 1st Latino Artists Exhibition that I have participated in this year 2010 and I know that there will be many more to come throughout the year in all parts of the world. So if you are a Latino Artists please find and participate in as many Latino exhibitions as you can. They are an excellent way to network and meet other Latino Artists and the exposure will help you obtain information and future exhibition opportunities.
I think 2010 will be a fantastic year for all Latino artists that are prepared and willing to find creative ways to exhibit and show their art to the public. For Latino Artists I see a lot of future collaborations and fantastic exhibition opportunities as Galleries, Museums and Institutions see how successful Latino Artists Exhibitions are. Best of Luck to all my fellow Latino Artists our future looks bright and colorful.
