You’re invited to the opening reception for the exhibition Convergencia/Convergence: Latin American Women Artists of Houston—LAWAH.

The work presented in Convergencia/Convergence is as varied as the women in LAWAH (Latin American Women Artists of Houston), although two definitive trends emerge: a strong interest in the human figure, sometimes associated with a social engagement; and a deep commitment to Geometric Abstraction. This exhibition demonstrates the promised bounty of multiculturalism, worldwide, and the new dialogues enriching culture at large.

About LAWAH
