Weichert SPRINGS into new Art for April!

Felipe Gomez Featured Artist at Weichert Realtors

 

 

 

     Felipe Gomez was born in the province of Moquegua, Peru. When he was eight years old he painted his first picture and his teacher predicted he would be a great artist. It was a picture of his country's flag and he painted it on his school's wall.

     His family lives in Lima, Peru. In 2000, he started thinking about immigrating to the United States because of the poor economic situation of his own country. So in 2004 he traveled through a total of nine countries to get to the United States. He was deported twice in Mexico back to Peru but he kept trying and the third time he was able to enter this country on March 22, 2004.

      His struggles as he worked to get here are portrayed in many of his paintings. Using acrylic as his medium he combines realism and surrealism to tell his life story. His vibrant colors and passionate feelings come through as you look at the details.

      Gomez is one of the artists who painted a panel in the Frida Project held last summer.  Those panels can be seen at M & M Marketplace, 264 SW Walnut Street but will also be on display at the Walters Cultural Art Center at a show featuring the Frida Project artists to be held this summer.

 

Vos Mariachi Band Will Entertain at Reception

Entertaining at the opening reception will be a few members of the Una Vos Mariachi band. This is a band made up of Hillsboro middle school and high school students. Led by Dan Bosshardt, the band is formed to promote cultural understanding, community unity and music education. It gives students an opportunity to explore culture through music and the Spanish language.
