Cordial Invitación, 29 de junio, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Lorena Villalobos - Galería 1887
Cerrando el mes de junio, designado como el Mes Internacional del Medio Ambiente, deseo invitarlos a mi próxima exhibición en la Galería 1887 con el nombre de Un S.O.S. Ecológico.
Presento 33 obras únicas en la técnica de monotipia. Estos trabajos fueron realizados durante las 14 semanas que duró el desastre del derrame de petróleo en el Golfo de México. Estas obras son una expresión dinámica del impacto causado en la naturalaza, en el primer aniversario de la tragedia.
Este catástrofe, causado por el ser humano y que es el tema de esta exposición, es un llamado a la conciencia humana para que todos seamos vigilantes activos del irrespeto hacia a nuestro planeta.
Después de mi última exposición individual en el 2009, me siento muy orgullosa de mostrarles este trabajo con una narración enlazada y fuerte, todavía mas aún por las protestas recientes en nuestra país con motivo de la posibilidad de perforaciones en busca de petróleo.
Por favor acompáñenme para disfrutar de una noche de arte y celebración por la vida de nuestro planeta.
Los espero, LOV
