Galeria is honored to host Cholo Style Magazine’s art exhibit entitled Cultura & Old School Ways. The exhibition will feature original drawings, paintings and photographs by Victor A. Spider from San Francisco (Cholo Style Magazine), Luis de Quetzalcoatl Tattoo (San Francisco), Chato de San Francisco (Mission District), Mosca de Chiques, Pino de Wilmas, Tuddy de East Los Angeles, and "Memo" Sanchez de SGV. Cholo Style Magazine was a recipient of a Galería GINAA Award, a program supporting the professional development of Native American en Indigenous Artists.
In the tradition of the early days of Galeria and Rene Yañez's legendary Low n' Slow exhibitions, authentic lowrider cars will be on display in front of Galeria on 24th Street during the exhibition opening.
Cultura & Old School Ways will speak of the cultural heritage, barrio life, and cultural pride of "Cholo" artists. The term "cholo" usually indicates a person of Mexican or Mexican-American descent who is associated with American youth movements such as the "lowrider" subculture, or the hip-hop scene in general.
This project was made possible, in part, thanks to a Galería GINAA Award, a small grants program supporting the professional development of Native American and Indigenous Artists. The GINAA Program is made possible thanks to the support of the San Francisco Arts Commission/Native American Arts & Cultural Traditions (NAACT) Program.
Opening reception Saturday, April 30: 7:30pm-10pm
