Joe Lopez and the artists from the early days of Gallista Gallery hosted the opening night of the Reunion show earlier this month.
Joe’s gallery right around the corner from Dock Space was one of the first to focus on Chicano/Mexican American art.
It was the launching pad for many artists’ careers and began a trend in Texas of showcasing the unique styles and the culture of Mexican Americans.
A dozen of these artists were invited to come back to the Lone Star Art District and show their work as part of the Second Saturday Artwalk.
Joe Lopez will be showing in the gallery and on his suggestions Jose Cosme, LA David, Abel Ebaben, Chris Escobar, Juan Farias, Xavier Garza, Luis Guerrero, Paul Karam, Angelica Mayorga, Larry Portillo, Mary Agnes Rodriguez, Victor Tello, and Luis Valderas were invited to show their work and join Dock Space Gallery the reunion.
Dockspace would love to create a catalog of the show to celebrate these influential artists.
Please consider contributing to the funding for the catalog to archive the show.
