MDC Art Gallery System Presents Real Abstractions Art Exhibition at MDC West

Real Abstraction 1

"Ecclesiastes," by Emilio Héctor Rodriguez, among the artwork featured in the Real Abstractions exhibition.

Miami, February 21, 2012 - Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Art Gallery System presents Real Abstractions, an exhibition showcasing eight Hispanic artists representing Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, and more! The exhibition kicks off at MDC’s West Art Gallery with an opening reception at 7 Friday, Feb. 24. The artwork, free and open to the public, will remain on display through April 27.    

The featured artists are Maria Teresa d’Azucena (El Salvador); Julio Bordas (Cuba); Blanca Daw (Venezuela); Blanca Dorantes (Mexico); Maruchi Carmona (Cuba); Pedro Hernandez (Cuba); Ana Maria Hoyos  (Colombia); and Emilio Hector Rodriguez (Cuba).

Although each of these artists has created through different motivations, the poetry of the abstract can be seen in each artwork. Many also have professional careers in other fields, such architecture, medicine, graphic design, agricultural engineering and cybernetics, which are equally challenging and intellectually inspire their works.

West Art Gallery is located at 3800 N.W. 115 Ave. in Doral.

For gallery hours and more information, please call the MDC Art Gallery system t 305-237-7700.
