First Art Show for Eastside LGBTQIA Artists Comes to Redmond
Centro Cultural Mexicano hosting “Rainbow on the Eastside” for Pride Month
Redmond, WA, May 20, 2021 – “Rainbow on the Eastside”, the first gallery show for LGBTQIA artists who live on the Eastside, will be held at Centro Cultural Mexicano in downtown Redmond from June 1 – 26 2021.
Featured artists include Mary Dispenza, Wing Mui, Dahra Perez, Amber Duan, Tomás Narvaja and Aaron Kapilivsky. The art show will exhibit work in a variety of media, including painting, photography, digital art and fiber art.
“I am excited to present this diverse group of local artists who range in age from Gen Z to the Baby Boomer generation,” said show organizer Wolfberry of Wolfberry Studio LLC. “Through the stories that they share with us, we see the breadth of the Eastside LGBTQIA experience – from seasoned activists who have worked in our communities for decades to college students who came out a few years ago.”
Come see the work of these Eastside creatives at Centro Cultural Mexicano on weekdays between 10am to 5pm from June 1-26, 2021. The Opening Week reception will be held on Saturday, June 5 from 1pm to 3pm. The Centro ensures Covid safety by requiring masks, limiting gallery occupancy to 5 visitors at a time, and running air filtration devices. An outdoor tented waiting space will be provided for attendees to wait their turn before visiting the gallery in groups of 5 at a time.
The Centro is located at 7945 Gilman Street, Redmond, WA 98052 (between Redmond Vacuum and McDonald’s Book Exchange.) Centro Cultural Mexicano is within walking distance of Redmond Transit Center.
