Testament of the Spirit: Paintings by Eduardo Carrillo

Art Show,Museum,Painting

Eduardo Carrillo's artwork has been described as mystical, realistic, surreal and visionary. His imagery, whether grounded in the everyday world or infused with magical realism, reflects his relationship to his native California and to his Mexican heritage, as well as to his early religious upbringing and respect for European traditions in art. An inspirational leader who actively challenged racism and injustice, Carrillo created programs and platforms that promoted greater awareness of Latin American culture, aesthetics and social concerns, significantly advancing the recognition and appreciation of Chicano art and culture in California. "Testament of the Spirit: Paintings by Eduardo Carrillo" highlights the creative efforts and social importance of Carrillo as artist, teacher, scholar and social activist. It showcases work created for three distinct realms: the public, the private and the museum. The artist's murals are featured in the full-color, bilingual exhibition catalogue. Intimate watercolors and paintings describe the artist's everyday life in self-portraits, still-lifes, and images of people and places he held dear. Large-scale visionary paintings - Carrillo's masterpieces - reveal his complex and creative mind.

Becoming a Woman in the Age of Enlightenment

Art Show,Museum,Painting,Drawings/Works on Paper,Sculpture

"Becoming a Woman in the Age of Enlightenment: French Art from the Horvitz Collection" examines the many paths and stages of women's lives in the art of 18th-century France. Works by Fragonard, Boucher, Watteau, Greuze and others, all drawn from the finest private collection of French art in the United States, show a variety of women, from court ladies to washerwomen, in their many societal roles. From the ancien régime to the Revolution and beyond, women's position and power were transformed. Organized thematically, the exhibition's 100-plus paintings, drawings and sculptures explore cultural and literary archetypes that affected women's self-image, their development from childhood to old age, their romances and their familial responsibilities. In addition to a new understanding of French 18th-century art, "Becoming a Woman" provides a new view of the feminine world at the dawn of modernity.
