Mariestella Colón Astacio presents her 2012 series ¡Mira, mira! Look up” at the Art Gallery of the University of the Sacred Heart [Universidad del Sagrado Corazón]. The exhibition opens on Thursday, August 30, 2012, at 7:30pm.
The gallery is located in the interior patio of the Barat Sur Building at the University of the Sacred Heart, located at Stop 26 ½, Ponce de León Avenue, Santurce, Puerto Rico. The exhibition is free and open to the public. The exhibition, which consists of 26 paintings in mixed media on canvas in both medium and large format, will be on view until October 20, 2012.
Once again, the Gallery fulfills its mission of presenting the work artists who, for various reasons, have left the art scene in the country and pursued their work in the diaspora, especially in the “north.” Originally from Puerto Rico, this artist has been based in the United States for twenty-four years. Her last exhibition on the island was in 2003, with her solo exhibition “Ficciones y Periferias” in the Museo de Las Americas in Old San Juan.
