“The work in this exhibition is expressive and beautiful – a guttural sense of loss transformed,” said Cuesta College Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery Coordinator Emma Saperstein. “Much like our beloved California Central Coast environment, many Puerto Rican artists are engaging the natural world as an inspiring model for communal healing from trauma, regeneration, and connection with the divine.”
Topologies of Excess will run through February 24. Prior to the opening reception on January 31, the artists will host weaving workshops, drop-in studios, and reading programs with the following schedule:
