Thanks to la Madre, la Madonna, and mujeres around the world, we exist and have plenty of artistic inspiration. This summer, we have a chance to celebrate all three at Arizona Latino Arts and Cultural Center (ALAC).
The downtown art space, studio, and gallery is hosting its second annual Latina Art Exhibit, "Madres/Madonnas/Mujeres," as a cross-culture look at women and mothers. The exhibition features paintings, mixed-media, and jewelry by female artists from Phoenix, Tucson, and Chicago including Francesca Anatra, Diana Caldreron, Christina Cardenas, Francisca Cota, Monica Crespo, Esperanza Gama, Cynthia Flores-Gurrola, Diana Luevano-Ruiz, Yolanda Palomo, Mary Ann Rodriguez-Veatch, Gabby St. Paul, Ilda Veloz, and Veronica Verdugo-Lomeli. The space's three galleries will be home to a group show and two separate one-woman shows all open through Friday, August 24.
Wednesdays-Fridays, 12-7 p.m.; Saturdays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: July 20. Continues through Aug. 24, 2012
