January 28th – February 26th, 2019
Reception: Tuesday February 5th, 4:00PM – 7:00PM
The Hyde Art Gallery will kickstart its Spring 2019 semester with Body Language, a
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.
