El Corazón

"Frutas y Corazón", acrylic on canvas.

For the past seventeen years curator Jose Vargas has organized the "El Corazon" exhibition for the Bath House Cultural Center. Here's my contribution to this year's show. The opening reception is January 29 and continues through February 26.
From the Bath House Cultural Center web site:

"The idea of creating an opportunity for local artists to explore various artistic interpretations of the human heart was conceived by Dallas artist and curator, Jose Vargas in 1993. 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.

Mr. Vargas has always been attracted to the symbol of the heart and, because of that fascination, he decided to create a public showcase of outstanding heart-related art pieces. This exhibition has enabled him throughout the years to share his passion with art patrons in Dallas and to engage close to one thousand participating artists.
