Curated by prolific representational artist Hernán Miranda, this exhibition features work by contemporary Paraguayans. Although several of the artists live abroad in Germany, Argentina, France and the United States, all the works are influenced by their mother country. Media include oil, acrylic, charcoal and graphite, and sculptures in bronze and glass, for “a convergence of different languages” in art coming from Paraguay, Miranda explains.
Artists include Gustavo Beckelmann, Osvaldo Camperchioli, Maite Casablanca, Esperanza Gill, Jorge Codas, Michael Oliver, Sila Estigarribia, Hernán Miranda, Roberto Morelli, Corina Paredes, Liliana Segovia, Felix Toranzos, Ing. Jorge Von Horoch and Gabriel Brizuela.
Admission is free. The Kwan Fong Gallery, located in Soiland Humanities Center, is open to the public 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Street parking is by permit. Parking lots are located at Olsen Road and Mountclef Boulevard.
