“Coming Together” Contemporary Bolivian Art
Coming Together is a project that joins two galleries, LuminArte Gallery and the Bianca Antognelli Art Gallery in a celebration of contemporary Bolivian art and music in Dallas. This collective art exhibition features six mid-career Bolivian artists reuniting in Dallas for the second time, with outstanding paintings by Patricia Mariaca, Fabricio Lara, Keiko Gonzalez, Angeles Fabbri, Erika Ewel and Alex Zapata. For this exhibition, the artists have invited their musical friends Vero Perez, a star in the Bolivian and Latin-American music scene and maestro guitarist Jorge Villanueva, as special guests to perform live for an enjoyable evening of music and vibrant contemporary Bolivian artwork.
Born in Texas and raised in the US and Bolivia, Keiko Gonzalez received an advanced degree and the Ralph Bunche Fellowship from Rutgers University Mason Gross School of Art and traveled and studied in Europe. Although Keiko’s primary medium is paint he is also at ease sculpting, drawing and producing multi-media installations, combining the gestural power of the Abstract Expressionists with the passionate coloring and texturing of the South American abstract tradition. His imagery shifts between loosely figurative, anecdotal and purely abstract, relying on an awareness of world culture and art.
