April 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Marietta, GA (April 16 2012) – Avisca Fine Art Gallery presents “Contrapunto: Six Contemporary Latin American Artists” May 4–31, 2012. The exhibition, whose title literally means having two or more independent but harmonically related melodic parts sounding together, brings together a group of artists already associated in a loose creative and cultural alliance to promote Latin American art. The six artists are natives of Venezuela, Peru, Cuba and the Dominican Republic and currently live in the Atlanta area and New York City. The exhibition brings to the Atlanta area a unique opportunity to experience the exciting, rich and wide-ranging artistic expression of Latin America, represented by the works of six expatriate artists who have established artistic careers or are strongly emerging in the mainstream.

The works in the exhibition span a range of modern and contemporary art practices - from early modernism to classical surrealism, to pop, to abstraction to color field, and photography - and is reflective of the trajectory of Latin American art over the last century. The artists represented are Aixa Caldera, Alexis Mendoza, Carlos Solis, Jose Pena, Pedro Fuertes and Stanley Bermudez.

A reception to open the exhibition will take place from 6 to 9 pm on Friday May 4 at Avisca Fine Art Gallery, 507 Roswell Street, Marietta, GA. The exhibition runs through May 31. Gallery hours are 12-6 PM Thursday to Saturday and by appointment other times.
