Rafael Corzo - Amber Robles-Gordon
 

September 15 - October 15, 2010

Opening Reception:
Saturday, September 18, 5 - 8pm


Intersecciones Culturales / Cultural Crossroads is compact, with the intent to overload.   Rafael Corzo, presenting art in the gallery as well as the craft store, brings an ambitious embodiment of  youthful energy and freedom.  Amber Robles-Gordon exhibits dazzling wall sculptures evocative of Carnival, steeped in the Afro-Caribbean heritage of objects imbued with symbolism so deeply felt that even when open to intellectual interpretation, their emotional interpretation rings clear.  Joan Belmar presents an installation of abstractions rendered with incredible precision and care.  Each creates delicate illusions of space that rest on balance between external structure and the fluidity of emotions.  And, that's all before mentioning Felix Angel, who lends the exhibition nine works of undeniable power.  The most established and longest experienced of this talented group, Angel - better known in the DC region as a curator than as an artist -  brings forth refinement, eloquence, and poignance,  that are always and only the outcome of years of creation, focus and discipline.
