“Generations Past, Present, and Future” Ruth Leonela Buentello & Valerie Chagolla

Centro Cultural Aztlan celebrates International Women’s Day and Month with GENERATIONS PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE; an exhibition featuring local San Antonio women Ruth Buentello and Valerie Chagolla.

Since 1911 each year on March 8th, International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. This year, Centro Aztlan is highlighting the cultural and artistic contribution of two local women artists whose artwork highlights family and community generations of past, present, and future.

Opening Reception:

Friday, March 8, 2019


The exhibit is free and open to the public and will be on view through Friday, March 29, 2019 Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm.

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.
