|Divine Hybrids: Syncretic Visions of Sexuality and the Sacred|
12:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Location: Morlan Gallery, Mitchel Fine Arts Center
Divine Hybrids feature contemporary mixed-media art in which figuration emerges in an also mixed imagery, taking after syncretic religions and mythologies born from historically decisive multicultural encounters. From emblematic figures of mestizaje, to deities that embody combinations of Haitian voodoo with Hindu, Mayan, Catholic, and yet other traditions, the three-dimensional art of Mexican, North Carolina-based Claudia Dominguez, alongside Lexington artists Diane Kahlo, and Bob Morgan, contemplates life within a sexualized realm of the sacred. Special Event ● Opening reception for the artists: Thursday, Feb. 28, 5-8 p.m., in the Morlan Gallery. Click for details
