[/ms_accordion_item] [ms_accordion_item title="Featured Artist: Ruth Leonela Buentello" color="#666666" background_color="" close_icon="" open_icon="" status="close"] Ruth Leonela Buentello is a visual artist and arts educator whose practice is rooted in painting but often bridges other disciplines, including community arts, and collaborative installations. Her work centers on representations of Latinx working class communities. She received her BFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011 and is a recipient of the 2017 Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors grant. From 2009- 2015 she founded and participated in the Mas Rudas collective in collaboration with like-minded Chicana artists. Through Mas Rudas her work has evolved to explore the socio-cultural examinations of Chican@ identity, cultural representations of gender, and the co-optation of Chican@/Tejan@/Latin@ history and culture. [/ms_accordion_item] [ms_accordion_item title="Featured Artist: Valerie Chagolla" color="#666666" background_color="" close_icon="" open_icon="" status="open"] Valerie Chagolla, a San Antonio native of Mexican decent, creates modern-day and pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican scenes of everyday life using oils. Each one of her unique paintings captures her profound visions of the past and present. Times of past generations are crucial to our future, and should not be forgotten. Chagolla captures the essence of generational knowledge through her works of art. Through her paintings, Chagolla aims to influence people of all ages, young and old, to seek truth in their past—to never forget where they come from, and to never lose sight of where they are going.
