ERIN CLULEY GALLERY is pleased to announce the exhibition MEXICO, opening on Saturday August 25, 2018, at 414 Fabrication Street, with a reception from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. and on exhibit through October 7. The show presents photographic works, paintings, designs and textiles where Mexico – by way of influence, location and artisans – is the common thread.
The exhibit uses the current interest in discourse on the future relationship between Mexico and America to explore how the two cultures have historically been inextricably related concerning art.
