Mattie Rhodes Center Art Gallery
La Reina: Our Lady of Guadalupe
December 4, 2015 – February 13, 2016
For the month of December we are happy to bring back this very popular exhibit and excited to celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe in our gallery. La Reina (or the Dark Virgin) is both a religious icon and cultural symbol that goes beyond words in both traditional and contemporary significance. This exhibition is looking for works that explore the meaning, context and translations of this figure as it has been used religiously, socially, and throughout our pop-cultural landscape. We accept submission from all artists, both local and national that hope to extend the conversation, interpretations and vision of Our Lady/La Reina.
