THE GALLERY is pleased to present We Are Stars/ Somos Estrellas, a joint exhibition featuring Martin Ferreyra and Pablo Gnecco.
“We are light and shadow, part of a whole in continuous movement, equal to the unknown end, in the darkness, we shine, we are stars”
Taking inspiration from the Day of the Dead celebration in Mexico, this exhibition, through paintings, ceramics and installations of light and sound, will give the audience a reason to reflect on what could be the reunion with our ancestors and keep their precious memories alive.
We Are Stars will open in conjunction with OYE Fest, the first latinx festival in the southeast of its kind. A three day festival in the heart of Atlanta that represents the diversity within the latinx community; fusing music, art, culture, activism.
