Under the provocative title “Lovers,” Guttenberg Arts is opening at Braddock Park Art Center in New Jersey this October 14th a major exhibition of recent works on paper by a rising star in the visual arts. Eduardo Sarmiento (b. 1980, Cuba) carries forward important traditions in the figurative art. The exhibition, curated by Joaquin Badajoz, who also wrote the essay in the catalog, is a celebration of lovers and deliberately allows the enjoyment of a master drawing in tender, shocking, hilarious ways.
Sarmiento has distinguished himself as a painter, graphic designer, and illustrator. His work breaks from convention, is provocative, poetic, and sheds light onto those darker zones where erotic feeling and love, pain and pleasure, lead us to self-discovery. His work has been exhibited internationally and is part of the permanent collection of several museums.
Saturday, October 14, 2017 with an artist talk from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and reception from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Exhibition continues through January 2018.
