Part of the CCA 2017 Cultural Art Series, the Gallery will feature the art of renowned Latino artist Carmen Sonnes, along with a curated show of other regional Latino artists.
From Carmen Sonnes: “I am a self-taught painter working in acrylic, collage, and mixed media. My style and my art have been called many things: Mexican, Latino, Tejano, Chicano, Tex-Mex, Mexican-American, contemporary, modern, woman-centered, figurative, and representational. I suppose my work is some or all of these things.

Basically, it is just what my heart and mind dream up. I am my art and my art is me. I am passionate about color and fascinated by Mexico. Born and raised in Texas, I now live in Tucson, Arizona and Vancouver, Washington. I draw my greatest inspiration from nature, memory, and Mexican culture and art. My work almost always depicts Latino or Native American women. It is what comes naturally to me, like breathing or laughter.”

This program is underwritten by The Templeton Foundation.
