Tourists, Locals, and Transplants Alike Will Appreciate This Exhibit in San Antonio

Centro Cultural Aztlan is pleased to present San Antonio on the Rise; a two-person exhibit showcasing the cultura of San Anto on canvas featuring Martin Rangel and Victor H. De La Fuente. These two homegrown artists put their thoughts and similar ideas together to exhibit the works that they want to share with the people of “San Anto.” Check it out on Saturday, beginning at 9:00 a.m.

Martin Rangel and Victor H. De La Fuente were born and raised—and have spent their whole lives—in this great city, and both hold vast knowledge about the history of the city. The artists believe San Antonio is growing in a historical and ethnic aspect; and by exhibiting their ideas of San Antonio on canvas they hope to educate the people of our city, visiting tourists, and newcomers. Their work captures the city and street views as part of everyday life. This exhibit not only highlights the historical part of San Antonio but also focuses on what brings our unique city together.

Martin Emmanuel Rangel’s work straddles between the concepts of representation and abstraction. He is fascinated by culture, history, everyday life, and symbols of different generations throughout the past and present, and the different meanings they evoke in different people.

Internally driven, and emotionally charged in his creative practice, Victor H. De La Fuente aims to imbue his city with drama, mood, and a passionate personality. Working with a wide variety of mediums, he paints his immediate surroundings with intimate, dynamic expression.

San Antonio On The Rise will be on display until September 6, 2019. Take this opportunity to see the exhibit before it closes to the public in the coming weeks! Admission is free. Visit http://www.centroaztlan.org for more information.

The team at Oxford at Sonterra Apartments in San Antonio, Texas encourages our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer. If you are hoping to witness new sights and experiences, be sure to check out this phenomenal local event!
