Open Exhibition and Reception

Exhibition: December 5, 2014 – January 10, 2015

Artist Speaker Series: 5 p.m., Friday, December 5, 2014

Artists’ Reception: December 5, from 6-8 p.m.

In the spirit of the theme, I maintained a level of openness, and gathered works that, to me, felt curious, attentive, vital, or eager. This includes images that are deeply personal and emotional, experimental or conceptual, story-based documentaries reflecting a social or political climate, as well as everything in between (or beyond).

Pancho Villa's Pistols and Embraces” ~ Sophie Esch

 Free Members • $5 Public

Pancho Villa, leader of the Northern forces of the Mexican Revolution, is often remembered as a national hero, but in his time many viewed him as an uneducated, unpredictable, and cruel 'savage.' Using songs, imagery, and Pancho Villa’s depiction in the novel “El águila y la serpiente” (1928) by Martín Luis Guzmán, Ms. Esch will facilitate an entertaining and enlightening hour of discussion. Sophie Esch is an Assistant Professor of Mexican and Central American Literature and Culture at the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at Colorado State University.
