May 20 - June 18, 2022 Barriers & Preservers | Margaret Davis Endless Endeavors | Benjamin Muñoz
Buckham Gallery is pleased to present two concurrent solo exhibitions: Margaret Davis’s Barriers & Preservers and Benjamin Muñoz’s Endless Endeavors.
Barriers & Preservers With the numerous social concerns facing today’s teens, Margaret Davis, uses their artwork to showcase adolescence from a variety of environments and cultures. Her multimedia paintings create imagery that portray teens among symbolic barriers and protectors like life preservers, emergency blankets, sand bags, and road barriers. This collection draws connections between how cultures and political entities can help or hinder teens as they form their adult personas.
Endless Endeavors Using identity and cultural assimilation as central themes, Benjamin Muñoz, raises thoughts and questions about the unique experience of immigrants and their families who migrate to the US. Muñoz tells these stories using imagery and composition that follow a chronological or linear timeline. The objects within these pieces help set the foundation for the story he is going to tell. These large scale woodcut prints open up a dialogue that brings comfort and insight for the viewers.
Barriers & Preservers and Endless Endeavors open Friday, May 20 and run through Saturday, June 18. Join us for an Opening Reception Friday, May 20 at 5:30 PM with *Live* techno and electro music from Russell Woods. ARTWALK will be held Friday, June 10 from 6 - 9 PM.
