Gallery hours are Friday 6-8pm, Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 4pm and by appointment. The artists thank the Distillery Artspace & Gallery for its support of this exhibition. LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SEE is a collective effort that concerns the “listening” of what the artist is thinking and what inspires them in their craft. The visual artist specifically interprets a story with each object, with each brush stroke and selection of colours and materials. While the paintings and installation in this exhibit stretch to large formats, they allow the viewer a more intimate look at what the artist examines and perceives. Josephine Barreiro’s paintings express momentary episodes capturing personal experiences and everyday occurrences that explore the context of emotions. Rodriguez-Calero uniquely integrates, merges and mixes her mastery of mediums (signature style termed as “Acrollage”) as if illustrating stories from a world outside of our own. Maria Dominguez’ passion for jazz and latin jazz inspires her to paint what she hears, in contrast to what she may see. Pablo Caviedes invents a world of his own and the viewer can almost hear the primitive sounds of the natural world. Walter Rodriguez demonstrates in his installations an adult looking back in time trying to remember and rescue the significance of certain moments.
