Dear friends, art lovers and collectors:
Hope you’re having a great summer. I’m very pleased to share with you some exciting news about my art career and upcoming projects.
Erick Sánchez at The 2012 The Bronx Biennale of Latin American Art
My painting and installation “I will show you fear in a handful of dust” has been selected to be part of The Bronx Biennale of Latin American Art 2012. It will take place between September 14 and November 30, 2012.
The Bronx Biennale of Latin American Art is a curated event designed to foster creative work as an effort to establish ‘art’ as a common language in several locations within the Bronx. The exhibition will be presented to a broad audience and will give international recognition to the participating artists.
The exhibit is curated by Alexis Mendoza, Luis Stephenberg and Miguel Lescano.
Diálogo 365: CARPE DIEM Exhibition
This year is full of blessings. I have also been accepted for the 2012 edition of Casa de Venezuela’s Diálogo 365: CARPE DIEM that will take place in Philadelphia’s Art in City Hall from October 15 – December 15, 2012.
Art In City Hall is a community exhibition program that is part of the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy. Additionally, the OACCE partners with local arts and cultural institutions on exhibitions that reflect its larger mission of serving the creative community.
The exhibit is curated by Anabelle Rodríguez-Lawton.
Genesis Solo Show in Times Square NY
I recently started to explore the Old Testament and became fascinated by the drama and hope in the biblical stories, finding them full of visual possibilities. I decided to create a new series entitled Genesis. Although these stories have been depicted for thousands of years, I’m excited to share my particular perspective with the world.
I will be presenting this series of paintings and installations on November 1st, 2012 at The Church of St. Mary the Virgin in Time Square. The exhibition will be open and free for the public to enjoy.
This exhibit is curated by José Vidal.
Completed AIM 32 Program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts
I recently completed the thirteen-week Artist in Marketplace (AIM) Program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. The idea behind AIM is to empower artists by helping them network, build a sense of community, and introduce their work to new audiences.
AIM is structured as a “collaborative residency” in which participants work directly with established artists, collectors, art critics, curators, dealers, lawyers, and other art world professionals. This program will culminate with the Bronx Museum’s AIM Biennial on June 2013 organized by a team of guest curators, and an accompanying catalog.
Many thanks for your continuing support of my career.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
