Latina art

 

La Galleria at Villa Victoria Center for the Arts, 85 West Newton St., is displaying a new art exhibition “Marca X” now through Feb. 15.

 

This exhibition offers a platform of self-expression for LGBTQIA Latinx artists. Often marginalized by the dominant culture even within their own communities, this show celebrates the intersectional identities of these artists, offering a space for empowerment, community, representation and visibility. This exhibition will contain several unique, distinctive voices that also function as part of a larger collective conversation.

 

Featured artists will include Anais Arias- Aragon, Izzy Berdan, Ethel Calderin, Jay Calderin, Maynor Campos, Nathaniel Devarie, Rixy Fernandez, Eddie Maisonet, Audrey Rodriguez and Ming Li Wu. Admission to the exhibition and reception are free.
