Opening Reception
Thursday, June 7, 2012, 6:30 to 9:30PM
Atlanta artist


This exhibit has been named "Camaleón Cromático " (Chromatic Chameleon) as a way to connect visually with the audience through the use of a variety of colors seen in the work of these five outstanding contemporary Latino artists. The artists in CONTRAPUNTO found a strong similitude to how chameleons use color to communicate and their own work.
CONTRAPUNTO is a group of Latino Visual Artists living and working in Atlanta and the surrounding areas. The group was started by Venezuelan Surrealist Painter Carlos Solis to bring awareness to people about the background of Latin Americans and to partner with more Latin American artists in an effort to build a prominent role on the art scene and to create more opportunities for Latin American artists. Currently its members include Peruvian Surrealist Abstraction Painter Pedro Fuertes, Dominican Abstract Painter Jose Pena, Mexican Contemporary and Abstract Painter Jorge Arcos, Venezuelan Tropical Pop Artist Stanley Bermudez and Carlos Solis.

Art Talk

ARTIST TALK(in conjunction with the exhibition "Contrapunto")

Saturday May 19, 3-5 PM
Please join us for an informal conversation with four of the artists as they discuss their work, the creative process and share some perspectives on issues in Latin American Art
"Artists from Latin America have consistently and imaginatively forged their own centers ably moving between Europe, the United States, the Caribbean, Central and South America and often instigating, igniting, and cross fertilizing some of the twentieth century’s most far reaching and significant artistic movements and practices, from cubism and surrealism to constructivism and abstraction".
