Noche Bohemia highlights Latino artists
Valiente, DFW-LGBT, and Latino/a Alliance putting on showcase for Hispanic Heritage Month.
When you think of art, do you think of paintings? Sculpture? Photography? Drawing? What about fashion?
Well, all of the above elements are part of the greater art world. And it’s a known fact that Latinos are very creative when it comes to transforming vision into reality.
To help showcase Latino talent in these artsy areas during Hispanic Heritage Month, Valiente, DFW-LGBT and Latino/a Alliance are putting on the second annual Noche Bohemia.
Though “noche” means night in Spanish, organizers are holding the art show from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, October 13, at the Ice House Cultural Center.
The show is free and most of the artwork in the show is for sale, with all the proceeds going to the artist.
There will be a $6,000 dress on display created by Mario Gallegos, an Oak Cliff fashion designer who claims to “breathe, sleep and bleed fashion.”
Alicia Molina, who is able to coax shapes and figures from media as different and difficult as porcelain and stoneware will be displaying her works of art, alongside the art photography of Jose Vargas, a well-known figure of the Dallas Latino art scene.
Altogether eight artists will be on hand to explain, showcase and sell their artwork. And just like the art pieces themselves, the artists come from all different backgrounds — students, college professors, struggling artists — all united by a passion to express themselves.
