16th Annual El Corazon Art Exhibit
Bath House Cultural Center
February 6 through March 6, 2010
Opening reception with artists from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday, February 6, 2010
The Bath House Cultural Center presents the 16th Annual El Corazón art exhibition, February 6-March 6, 2010. An opening reception with the participating artists will be held on Saturday, February 6, 2010 from 7 to 9 p.m. Both the exhibition and the reception are free and open to the public.
In 1993, exhibition curator, Jose Vargas, conceived the idea of organizing an art exhibition in Dallas that would allow artists to explore various artistic interpretations of the human heart. Since then, this passionate and delightfully eclectic art show has featured diverse creations inspired by the heart (El Corazón), an important symbol in Mexican and Latin American art, and a significant theme in western culture. As a result of Mr. Vargas’ original idea, more than 900 local and regional artists have been included in his show throughout the years. This year, this popular show features the work of more than forty artists from the DFW Metroplex and other Texas cities. The artwork included in El Corazón includes paintings, sculptures, photography, and mixed-media art.
The artists featured in the 16th Annual El Corazón art exhibition are:
Dan Barber, Rita Barnard, Penelope Bisbee, Rebecca Boatman, Betty Bucher, Martin Campos, Paul Carranza, Roy Cirigliana, Jose Cruz, Julio Cesar Flores, Jacque Forsher, Merry Fuhrer, Angela Gallia, Rebecca Guy, Genaro Hernandez, Juan J. Hernandez, Orlando Hernandez, Armando Huerta, Johanna Hulsey, Cindy Kelly, Julia McLain, Christina Medina, Lottie Minick, Chet Morrison, Terry Mosher, Juli Pennington Hulsy, Richard Ray, Joe Sarate, Kate Schatz, Michael Scogin, Russ Sharek, Jerry Smith, Terry K. Smith, Arleigh Stark, Pam Stern, Patricia Waas, Laura F. Walton, Kathleen Wilke, Julie Zarate, and other artists.
