SUR: Biennial Discussion
At the Wray Theatre, on Thursday Oct. 27, 2011, Rio Hondo College held an event for the SUR: Biennial Panel Discussion about the four most talented artists around Southern California. The featured artists that were on the panel discussion were Wayne Healy, Kathy Gallegos, and Sharon Mizota that shared us information about their recent experiences.
The idea of the SUR: Biennial is to let the Chicano Art out in the open and show to the people around them what beautiful sculptures and paintings they can create. With passion and confidence, their culture art work stands to the public and will remain seen for everyone to see.
Curator Ronald Lopez was the host of the panel discussion for that night and was asking questions to the artists. Before he had asked them questions, he had convinced the public that they needed more "ambitious artists into our world." With three key words can lead to success to become an art master: educate, activate, and provoke. Chicano cultural arts had successfully reached all three, but were left silenced and rejected by a certain racist publicity.
Artists like Sharon Mizota, a web designer, writer and a professional journalist, Kathy Gallegos, a photographer and gallery owner of Chicano art, and Wayne Healy, a sculpture and painting artist had made a difference to our communities. Beyond cities from Southern California and of South America, their magnificent work were well known and noticed from their people.
During the discussion, Lopez asked each of the artists what were their famous art pieces from around the area.
These artists were rewarded with talent and the beauty creations of many cultures. With skill and knowledge, they can do anything to change what the world is today. It includes media, poetry, feeling, passion, racism, voices from other people or communities, and about life interacting with the knowledge of Chicano art. Deep discussions about art were discussed from the artists to the audiences at the Wray Theater.
Maybe with some understanding cultural arts, they would have more control for bigger opportunities, like the SUR: Biennial. Finally it is their chance to be heard and receive more curators, art critics, reviews, and recognition. "We are not women artists, or Chicano artists...we are artists," Gallegos quoted.
