Opening Reception – In Between: Painting the Post Immigrant Experience

October 7, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A party to celebrate fresh, fascinating art by Orlando-based artists Mär Martinez, Leo Cordovi, and MJ Torrecampo

Be among the first to have an art experience like no other in Central Florida! Meet the artists and celebrate the opening with us Friday, October 7, from 6:30-9:00pm. You can explore the beautifully lit grounds of A&H’s National Historic Landmark campus while you enjoy Latin beats by DJ Nigel John, food by The Gnarly Cuban, and a bar.

This exhibition features the work of three extraordinary painters, Cuban-born Leo Cordovi, Filipino-born MJ Torrecampo, and Syrian American Mär Martinez. The resulting three visual narratives of the post immigration experience all unite to form a picture of modern American identity. Through explorations of memory, resilience, family, and sanctuary, these artists are redefining themselves in a space between seemingly opposing cultural forces. This sense of evolving identity, like the brushstrokes of their paintings, is layered and reworked by time.
