Rodez Art Gallery Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

Tony Mendoza’s Idioms Series Begins October 6 In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Rodez Art Gallery will present a special solo exhibit by the “King of Cuban Pop Art.” Tony Mendoza, an artist known for his whimsical and colorful work celebrating life in Miami’s Little Havana, will premiere his exhibit “Lost in Translation: A unique look at what is said…” beginning October 6 and running through October 12, 2012.

In this series, Mendoza applies his distinctive vision to literally portraying the imagery of common Spanish and English language idioms. Discovering in the process that what is said in everyday conversations can inspire truly humorous, compelling and surrealistic illustrations.

In his colorful work Mendoza pokes fun at life. He sees humor in all things, thus compelling the viewer of his artwork to take matters-at-hand a little less seriously. His creations have the ability of making people forget their headlong race against time, obliging them to stop, observe, smile and yes, to even laugh out loud.

The vernissage will be held on Saturday, October 6, 2012 during the Coconut Grove Gallery Walk from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, noon to 10 p.m.

Rodez Art Gallery is located inside CocoWalk at 3015 Grand Ave., Suite 237. For more information, please call George Rodez at (786) 543-7237.
