4 Threads Exhibition + After Party at RAM
New Work by Jamie Chavez, Gerardo Monterrubio, Jaime Muñoz, and Jaime GERMS Zacarias
Riverside CA – The Riverside Art Museum (RAM) proudly presents 4 Threads: New Work by Jamie Chavez, Gerardo Monterrubio, Jaime Muñoz, and Jaime “GERMS” Zacarias, running June 3 – November 4, 2018, with a free, open-to-the-public Opening Reception on Saturday, June 2, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., with an After Party presented by Mano y Mano Productions from 8 p.m. – 12 midnight for $20.
These highly talented and acclaimed artists share with us the exuberance, richness, and pathos of their complex cultural identity. Mesoamerican imagery is prominent in the richly-layered paintings by Jaime Muñoz and fused with the Cholo styles of the ’70s and ’80s in Jamie Chavez‘s fantastical work. From Jaime Zacarias‘s cleverly stylized Lucha Squids to Gerardo Monterrubio‘s clay vessels that combine the elements of Mexican mural painting with his artistic beginnings as a graffiti artist, there artists celebrate a personal exploration of community, each with a respectful nod to the Chicano artists who inspired them.
The free Opening Reception for 4 Threads is 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 2. Come meet the artists and see their new work. DJ sets by RYAN G (FUNK FREAKS) & MAS TROPICAL (KUCR 88.3 FM).
The After Party immediately follows the Opening Reception from 8 p.m. – 12 midnight.
