Body Language

January 28 – February 26, 2019

Tuesday, February 5
Reception | 4 – 7PM | Hyde Art Gallery

The Hyde Art Gallery will kickstart its Spring 2019 semester with Body Language, a figurative exhibition of works by seven local artists. The human figure has always been a central theme of visual art throughout history. It is the primordial image, appearing abundantly in works of antiquity, transformed in a boundless variety of formats and is still used to express fundamental ideas concerning the human condition. This group exhibition showcases artists whose work continues to reinvent the human form as visual language. The artworks presented inhabit the full spectrum between abstraction and representation, each distinct in the respective artist’s approach to the figure.

The exhibiting artists will be Armando de la Torre, Chantal Wnuk, Gloria Favela Rocha, Hugo Crosthwaite, Mario Chacon, Misty Hawkins, and Victor Ochoa.

Body Language will be on display from January 28 until February 26, 2019 at Grossmont College’s Hyde Art Gallery. The Hyde Art Gallery will host an opening reception on Tuesday, February 5 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. There will be live music and delicious refreshments. All Hyde Art Gallery exhibitions and events are always free and open to the public.


GALLERY AND PARKING INFORMATION
Due to construction of Grossmont College's new Theatre and Visual Arts complex, a majority of the southern side of parking lot #1 has been fenced off. Additional parking can be found on the other side of parking lot #1 between Building 23 (Sculpture) and Building 32B (Childhood Development Center). Directional signs have been placed around campus to help navigate areas under construction. It may take some additional time to find parking and walk to the gallery during this construction period. We regret any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Gallery’s daily hours are Monday through Thursday from 10AM to 6PM, and on Fridays by appointment only. We are closed Saturday, Sunday, and legal holidays. All exhibitions and events are free and open to the public. Visitors are required to purchase a $2 one-day parking permit at a vending machine located in any parking lot. For the evening of the opening receptions, parking will be complimentary. No parking pass needed. Please only park in available student parking spaces.
