Young Artistsâ€ is a collaboration between Cristina Medrano and Amanda Landaverde. Amanda and Cristina both utilize digital media and more traditional media in their individual work and were inspired to synthesize these two worlds of media in their show. The two were also influenced by surrealist artists such as Salvador DalÃ, RenÃ© Magritte, Vladimir Kush, Marcel Duchamp, Hannah Hoch, and Max Ernst.
This special show will be exhibited for four weekends (November 2-3, 9-10, 16-17 and 23-24) from noon – 5:oo PM.
