Latino Art Show opens Sept. 12 at Fallbrook Library

FALLBROOK – The Friends of the Fallbrook Library announced that its new art show, Arte Estandarte (Banner Art), will be on display from Sept. 12 through Nov. 4 in the Community Room. The show is curated by artist and curator Daniel Marquez. A display of sculptures by Jorge E. Medrano will also be on exhibit in the Reading Patio.

Arte Estandarte was started by Tijuana artists Patty Roa and Ligia Santillán in 2018 with exhibitions in “V.I.P. Lounges” in airports around México. The show makes a call for the expression, in the language of art, of the urgent need that exists to focus on the conservation and protection of the planet. It is an invitation to consider “ecology as the network that interactively connects all life on Earth.”

Each artist captures, in their own style, the opportunity to exhibit their art with others in various cultural locations allowing them to show and promote diversity in art. The Mexico/USA collaboration, that has always existed, emphasizes these different experiences to inspire awareness about care and love for the planet.

These exhibitions give a different experience to the passengers at the airports while they are waiting, bringing attention to nature and conservation of the planet as well as facilitating the spectator to acquire original art. The banners used in the show in the creation of art as well as the packaging and transportation, produce less waste for the planet.

The climate that exists today, because of war, the pandemic and political conflict, is forcing people to live in fear. The medicine that could help to cure these problems is art.

The collection of these artists is brought together at the library for people’s enjoyment. All are invited to attend a free reception Friday, Oct. 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. The library is located at 124 S. Mission Road.
