HONORING NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE ON THE YBOR CITY CAMPUS
THE GALLERY PRESENTS
MATEO ROMERO, War Music
November 2-27, 2013
Mateo Romero is from the Pueblo of Cochiti in New Mexico. Timeless, archaic elements of Pueblo culture are juxtaposed with post-modern imagery from our American, mainstream society. Abstract expressionistic palette knife and swirling gestural brush work develop a rhythmic, trancelike feeling in his paintings which refer to the metaphysical space of the Pueblo and the dance itself.
Opening Reception: Nov 5, 4:30-7pm; Arvel Bird Concert, 7:30pm
Arvel Bird is a violinist and Native American flutist known around the world for his dramatic connection between Celtic and Native American traditions. His music is enlightening and humanizing. He has toured with Glen Campbell, Loretta Lynn, Louise Mandrell and others. Once he began composing and recording his own music, the result was a fusion of both his Scottish (Clan Kennedy) and Native American (Southern Piute) roots.

Kirk Ke Wang
Artist's Reception: Thursday, Sept 12, 5-8:00pm
Power Point Presentation: 6:30pm. Mainstage Theatre
This site specific installation was inspired by the artist's recent travel to China and Cuba, his memory of enjoying Cuban sugar during the cold war time in China, and the connections Ybor City has with Cuba. It deals with the love-hate relationships between opposite or different political systems. The paradox and irony of "bombs" made of brown sugar, candy, tobacco and other culture icons will instigate a debate regarding today's international affairs. Kirk is currently Porfessor of Art at Eckerd College.
