EXHIBITION CONTINUES THROUGH AUGUST 11

For thirty-five years, John Valadez (b.1951) has depicted the people and places of Southern California in his exquisite pastels and richly hued canvases. Moving from the realistic to the fantastic, the Los Angeles-based Chicano artist conveys qualities of the city’s lived reality and imagined potential.

Support for the exhibition is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts, the LLWW Foundation, the Mandell Weiss Charitable Trust, and the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Fund. Additional funding is provided by the Cochrane Exhibition Fund.
