McColl Center for Art + Innovation welcomes LaCa's represented artist, Juan Dolhare, as one of the five artists to the fall 2018 residency program.
Portland, OR - Two works by Cristina Toro, debuted in LaCa Projects’ Cristina Toro: Strike a Match to Hear My Sound in Spring 2017, are featured in Fourteen 30 Contemporary’s exhibition, Epochal Aeration: Or, The Slow Hand, curated by noteable author and arts contributor Trinie Dalton.
Botellas al Mar (“Bottles to the Sea”) is part of a project that encloses the main idea of the relation between the space and the people who live in it, where one creates and transforms the other and vice versa. This piece is specifically inspired in the Malecon Habanero (Havana’s Malecon), which celebrated its one-hundredth anniversary in 2001 and is the protagonist of stories of all kinds―a metaphor of the Cuban’s geographic limits and the human’s eagerness for extending his spiritual territories.

The mesmerizing new work of Cristina Toro is on view at LaCa Projects. Her exhibition, 'Strike a Match to Hear My Sound', is up through April 7, 2017. Pictures do not come close to doing these brilliant works justice. The indescribable vibrant colors, rhythmic imagery, and impressive scale can only be fully appreciated in person.
LaCa Projects is a traditional commercial gallery that rotates shows every 8-12 weeks, with a great breadth and depth of artists that range from emerging to master level artists. The shows also have a wide range of style, medium, aesthetic, and movement.
Latin American Contemporary Art Projects off of Bryant Road in South End has gathered an all-star cast of Latin American artists that have exhibited there in the past for the second large-scale collaborative exhibition in the gallery's three-year history, Collective II.
In cooperation with Latin American Contemporary Art Projects, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art is proud to present Art Beyond Bars: Works from the Bechtler's Jail Arts Initiative, which showcases artwork produced by Latino inmates and youthful offenders who participated in the Bechtler Museum’s outreach partnership with the Mecklenburg County Jail.
