Vallejo And The Art Of The Americas
Los Angeles, CA
Linda Vallejo, whose work we feature on our cover, owns the Galeria Las Americas, dedicated to showing the outstanding works of Chicano and Latin American artists. Many critics believe that when she shows her own work, it is among the best the Galeria offers.
Linda founded Galeria Las Americas five years ago to enhance the ability of Hispanic artists to find galleries where their works would be hung. The Galeria now represents over thirty contemporary Chicano and Latino American artists from South and Central America, Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Spain, and the United States. It was recently included in “Quien es Quien in U.S. Commerce 1994,” New York. It has also received awards of merit and distinguished recognition from the National Association of Chicano Studies, City of Los Angeles, Institute of Hispanic Cultural Studies and Comision Femenil de Los Angeles.
