The Bath House Cultural Center and exhibition curator, Jose Vargas, invite visual artists to submit entries for the 24th Annual El Corazón art exhibition.
Since 1993, Mr. Vargas has organized the El Corazón art exhibition in Dallas. This popular exhibition is a beloved annual tradition at the Bath House Cultural Center that gives artists an opportunity to create various artistic interpretations of the human heart. This passionate and eclectic exhibition features a variety of ideas, styles, and concepts inspired by the heart (El Corazón), an important and universal symbol in art.
SUGGESTED THEME: Hearts and Music

Listening to music can be good for the heart. When you hear music, what feelings do you experience? Well, put those feelings onto a canvas (or other media). Think of this exhibition as El Corazón with a musical slant! Create a piece of art based on a favorite song, or a particular style of music, or musician. Or, perhaps, you can do a combination of a heart and a musical instrument. When it comes to combining the symbol of the heart and the concept of music, the possibilities are limitless.

The 21st Annual La Virgen de Guadalupe

Art Exhibition Curated by Jose Vargas

Reception this Saturday: December 3, 2016 6:00pm-8:00pm
Oak Cliff Cultural Center  223 W. Jefferson Boulevard Dallas, TX 75208

This popular annual exhibition honors The Virgen de Guadalupe, patron saint of Mexico. Since 1992, Jose Vargas, the curator of the exhibition, has invited talented and diverse artists every year to create expressive and imaginative works of art that pay tribute to the “dark skinned Madonna.” The show has become a tradition in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and has been praised by the public for its original renditions of the iconic religious and cultural symbol. Any person visiting this exhibition, regardless of their faith or religion, can enjoy the colorful array of works of art portraying devotional and warm-hearted artistic expressions by various individuals.

Participating artsits include Janet M. Reynolds, Samuel Torres, Diane Torres, Samuel A. Garcia, Vincent Morin Jr., Ramiro Ordonez, Michele Mayfield, Francisco Delgado, Yvonne Perez, Ricardo Boisselier, Patricia Cowan, Lorena Williams, Amy J. Schultz, Denise Althea Graham, Jose Vargas, Mary Ann Turner, MAK, Liliana Ramirez, Sarita Westrup, Margaret Williams, Eva Moraga, Rebeca Navarro, Renee Padilla Quiroz, Raul Servin, Marcela Mihaloglou, Eva Azul, Juliet Rivera-Schwabe, and Alexandra Tomala.
This year Jose Vargas began a partnership with Samuel A. Garcia, a gallery curator and instructor from the Ysleta Independent School District in El Paso, Texas. The first collaborative project of the two curators involves an art exchange program that will allow art instructors form the border town to exhibit their works of art in Dallas. The program will also give Dallas Artists an opportunity to display their works in a similar, long-lived Virgen de Guadalupe exhibition in El Paso. The organizers of the exhibitions in Dallas and El Paso foresee that this will be the first of many future artistic collaborations.

About the Curator
Jose Vargas has curated this exhibition since 1992. Mr. Vargas is an experienced visual artist and exhibition curator who has collaborated with the Oak Cliff Cultural Center and other City of Dallas cultural centers on numerous occasions, offering curatorial, art administration, and art logistic services.
