Artwork Goes Live at Gallery North
By Treenail Walker
The North Campus’ art department held its first virtual art show at the Gallery North on Oct. 9.
“Tell everyone to come join the celebration!” said Victor Gomez, an art professor at North Campus whose work was featured at the event.
Some other art professors featured at the event were G.L. Sullivan and Alena Fresquet.
There was live music by Marcela Cardenas. Cardenas sang bossa nova and Columbia fusion music as everyone crowded around looking at the artwork.
“I think the art is pretty good. For some of the designs I had to step back, and look at them to really understand what they were. I thought that was pretty cool,” said Christian Salatos, 19, pharmacy major.
The three hour event was displayed live on the mdc.edu/north/live website, for everyone to see.
“I feel the paintings are very surreal, modern, stylish, and very colorful,” said Alejandro Cardozo, 16, criminal justice major.
“Las Gemelas” was a painting of twins portraying there are two sides to individuals. It was also indicated how there is a thin line between love and hate.
The painting “Give Back” represented Hispanic Heritage Month. It was a painting of a man standing physically powerful in front of a moon symbolizing the demand of taking back what was taken.
“This is our first opening, and first media service,” Gomez said. “It is our world premiere of worldwide art.”
