Tropeycalia Club, the installation of paintings, drawings, sculptures and collaborative artworks by John Yoyogi Fortes, Juan Carlos Quintana, and Carlo Ricafort, opens Saturday, September 22, 2019 at the Skyline College Art Gallery in Building 1. There will be a reception for the artists on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Both the exhibition and the reception are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served against a backdrop of lively music.
The title of the exhibition is a play on the 1960’s Brazilian artistic movement, Tropicalia. Using a conscious misspelling of ‘tropey’, the show explores myriad tropes associated with everything tropical. Come see for yourself what all the talk is about!
‘Tropeycalia Club’ will be on view in the Art Gallery until October 20, 2018. The Skyline College Art Gallery is open Mondays through Fridays and is located on the ground floor of Building 1. Check our Facebook page for current hours at facebook.com/skygallery. The Gallery is open to all, with free admission.
