In 1993, Sam Coronado founded the Serie Project, a non-profit Latino arts organization dedicated to the fine art of serigraphy. Since its inception, the Serie Project’s annual AIR (Artist in Residence) program invites artists to learn the serigraph printmaking technique and create a limited edition of prints, under the guidance of a Master Printer. This year, Mexic-Arte Museum and the Serie Project present Women of the Serie Project, a selection of serigraph prints produced by women who have participated in the Serie Project residency program. The varying works reflect the over twenty years of diverse discussions women are having about contemporary culture in their unique serigraphs. These artists touch on family and tradition, language and race, queer identity, immigration, feminism, and Chicana identities. Together, this selection of prints offers unique interpretations of their experiences and creates a multi-dimensional female dialogue.
Exhibited artists include Anna Salinas, Deann Acton, Santa Barraza, Carla Nickerson, Maricela Sanchez, Lizzie Martinez, Sharon Smith, Leticia Huerta, Sandra Hu, Alma Lopez, Alejandra Almuelle, Celia Alvarez Muñoz, Delilah Montoya, Melanie Cervantes of Dignidad Rebelde, Bernice Appelin-Williams, Ruth Buentello, Vicki Meek, Sandra Fernandez, and Kathy Varga
