Event description

Description

Experience the evocative, transformative beauty of Havana through the lens of world traveler and local fine art photographer, Jorge Villareal. His new work explores the aching beauty found in the details of the city's deteriorating structures, their soulful mimicking of precious stones and our own biases when it comes to determining value.

"Guided by the color and the texture of the walls in La Habana, Cuba, Jorge Villarreal finds a gem in each wall in his series, 'You're a Gem.'

The salt from the ocean's air distresses and erodes the layers of paint from the walls developing gemstone-like formations.

For Villareal, discovering these walls tucked away in small alleyways and hidden corners is what makes the city of La Habana the true gem."

NOTE: Special event on September 23rd, but gallery is open by appointment only for all of September. If interested please call Nathan at 512.731.0314
