The Galería Expresion is a spacious 2500/SF professional gallery and one of Centro Aztlan’s oldest and most visible programs. The community enjoys 6-8 yearly exhibits of varying genres and artists while encouraging those who are just beginning as they collaborate on various projects. These group shows give more than 350 visual artists a year the opportunity to undergo professional review by a large audience and an entree into art markets that otherwise would be closed to them.
Participating artists are able to create, refine, perform, and exhibit their work while assisting them with valuable opportunities to expand and enhance their careers. Our support extends to the most practical details of exhibition, including financial assistance for the printing of exhibition catalogs, invitations, production costs, documentation and marketing.
Interested newcomers are encouraged to submit a combination of artistic qualifications (resumes, artist statements and samples of current work) for consideration to exhibit in the Galería Expresion. Submissions are reviewed by an Artistic Advisory Committee comprised of professional artists and credentialed cultural specialists that work closely with the arts program manager and assist with the effective presentation of the scheduled exhibitions. The process is intended to promote excellence and assist in the selection of exceptional works of arts.
