Alfredo Arreguín: Life Patterns
Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, Bainbridge Island, WA - To Feb 3, 2019
Alfredo Arreguín has been honored by the National Academy of Sciences as well as the National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian American Art Museum. This show, his third US museum retrospective, includes recent works focusing on ecology, nature and icons of Mexican cultural history. Now 83, the University of Washington–educated artist combines rigorous formal compositions of linear grids with imagery of natural scenes, endangered jungles, and cultural and political fi gures associated with la Raza (Hispanophone communities throughout the world).
