The Lyle O. Reitzel Contemporary Art Gallery presents a spectacular individual exhibition by the Dominican artist Gustavo Peña entitled “ Aguas superficiales,” to be inaugurated next Thursday, March 16 at 7:30 PM at its headquarters in the Piantini Tower. This event will take place within the framework of Design Week RD, organized by Jorge Brown Cott.

The collection of paintings focuses on the theme of water and its metaphorical meaning in our lives. Water represents the ever-changing and unpredictable nature of the human experience, and Peña captures it through his expressive use of color and an veiled sense of humor that suggests various readings.
