Vargas Gallery is proud to present our first international artists exhibition Allegory: Beyond depiction, banalities & cultural statements. Dedicated to highlighting emerging artists from different countries while establishing our commitment to support both new talent and cross-cultural exchange, Vargas Gallery curators Annie Saldana and Henry Ballate, along with jury member, Noor Blazekovic from Irreversible Magazine invite you to explore this dynamic selection of works of art.
Allegory includes artists from Egypt, Germany, Philippines, Lithuania, Austria, Netherlands, Poland, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela, with the intention of providing the community a representation of what is being produced today by artists around the globe. The artists explore an array of mediums including photography, painting, screenprinting, everyday objects and sculptures, as well as an ample variety of subject matters like nostalgia, existentialism, cultural contradictions, faith and more. This exhibition is meant to be viewed as an exploration of the individual’s art making process in the contemporary artworld.
Vargas Gallery is the Vargas University professional art gallery coordinated by Vargas University Department of Art and its faculty. Our mission is to encourage students, faculty members and the local community to participate in a creative environment that exhibits works of art which engage participants in dialogues with the contemporary artworld. Vargas Gallery exhibits the work of national and internationally recognized professional artists as well as emerging artists.
