This diverse selection of California Chican@ artists ranges from realistic imagery to abstract work. Techniques include drawing, painting, cut paper, photography, sculpture and wood block printing. Some of the artists confront political issues of racism, immigration and socio-economics head on. Others use humor to convey conflict and explore living in two cultures simultaneously. The artwork references the past, the present and a view into the future. We at the Cabrillo Gallery are grateful for the opportunity to present this collection of artwork that represents a portion of a community with diverse views on life in California.
