Friday, February 20th from 5:00-8:00pm: TANA Exhibition featuring prints and drawings by Juan Carrillo and Esteban Villa

 

TANA is pleased to announce its first exhibition of 2015 featuring prints and drawings by Juan Carrillo and Esteban Villa. For the past three years Juan Carrillo has worked at TANA to produce a portfolio of screenprints based on the life of his mother. He has now collaborated with TANA staff to organize this special two-person exhibition. Juan Carrillo is an artist, activist, organizer, and arts administrator who has served the state and the greater Sacramento region for decades. Carrillo, a longtime member of the Royal Chicano Air Force, was an early contributor to the seminal 1960s Chicano Journal, El Grito. He retired as Deputy Director of the California Arts Council and has since concentrated on personal work. Esteban Villa, professor emeritus at California State University, Sacramento, was a co-founder of the Royal Chicano Air Force and an early Chicano activist who contributed drawings to many 1960s Chicano newspapers and publications, including El Plan de Santa Barbara. This exhibition will feature past and recent work created by Carrillo and Villa and will launch the 2015 year of programming at TANA. This special event will serve as an informational opportunity for those interested in participating in TANA’s 2015 community screenprinting workshops. We hope that you will join us in celebrating an evening of food, music and art. The event is free and open to all.
