This Thursday, August 22, at 2 p.m. a guided tour to the exhibition Alusiones al Órden (Allusions to order) will be held by local artist Marisol Torruella among the collective exhibition Brushes and Chisels, located in Casa Escuté Museum in the Cultural District of Carolina.
Beyond the San Juan area, art lovers will find a treasure of works of art made by local contemporary and legendary artists in museums and galleries that are not widely known. One such place is Casa Escuté Museum located in Carolina. Since July, this museum has become home to the exhibition Brushes and Chisels, an interesting collection portraying different ways to express their standpoints about life.
This exhibition reunites the collective works of deceased legendary artists Salvador Meléndez and Rafael López del Campo, as well as contemporary artists Marisol Torruellas and Juan Crespo de León. Featuring a fine selection of sculptures and paintings, the exhibition pays homage to the trajectory of these two legendary artists and provides a space for both contemporary artists to present their work and points of view.
Marisol Torruella is a Puerto Rican painter and art teacher known by her artistic sensibility and her commitment to various community causes. Through mixed media and light filled colors, she portrays her reverence for established patterns and orders within the natural and supernatural. Her work is loaded with symbolism, spontaneity and reflection. Juan Crespo, sculptor and educator, is the author of several sculptures that make reference to freedom, homeland, justice, human behavior, and women.
Locally renowned artist Salvador Meléndez, who until his departure in January this year, showcased the maturity of a career in the Puerto Rican art scene, left a whole range of works of art where he expressed his dreams and experiences about art and life. These works combined with the ones from Rafael López, renowned art teacher who earned the distinction of being one of the best sculptors in the Country, make this exhibition an experience that cannot be missed.
Exhibition will be open to the public until October 6, Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10 to 5 p.m., Sundays and holidays from 12 to 5 p.m. For more information, please contact the Tourism and Cultural Development office at (787) 757-2626 extensions 3902, 3903, 3943.
