Two exhibitions in Bellas Artes
By Sandra Ríos
On July 17, Centro Cultural Ignacio Ramírez “El Nigromante” (Bellas Artes) opened two exhibitions that will continue showing until October.
One of them is dedicated to photographer Deborah Turbeville and the other to painter Artemio Sepúlveda, who graduated from the Escuela de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado (school of painting, sculpting and engraving) “La Esmeralda” and was an apprentice of David Alfaro Siqueiros.
In the Sala de Arte Mexicano we can appreciate Sepúlveda’s work dedicated to Pasta de Conchos, a mine in Coahuila that collapsed because of a big explosion, killing 65 miners.
The Sala Principal shows Turbeville’s collection “Mexico-Guatemala.” Tuberville lived in San Miguel for 20 years and passed away last October. The photographs on display were taken in 1991, but they seem older due to the process in which she developed them. In her artwork, we can observe Latin women with strong and dignified personalities. This artwork was recently on view in Tokyo.
