Gabe Bartalos: Abhorrence and Obsession
The University Art Museum presents Gabe Bartalos: Abhorrence and Obsession through Dec. 8, within the California State University Long Beach campus.
Admission is free for members and those with CSULB and $4 for general public.
For more than15 years, special effects artist Gabe Bartalos has broken new ground and created constantly evolving characters and sets – part set design, part art installation – that tie the psychology of emotional response to the visual effects of the moving image. He ventures into unexplored territory and opens up new dialogue that pushes us to rethink our ideas about visual effects and character design in relations to film, the visual arts, and the film audience.
Venue: University Art Museum CSULB
Location: 1250 Bellflower Blvd., Long Beach
Join Picture This Gallery and see all the different versions of La Virgen during the month of December
An artist reception is scheduled, from 4 to 8 p.m. Dec. 14. The exhibit runs through Dec. 28.
The Virgin Mary is known by many titles (Blessed Mother, Virgin, Madonna, Our Lady), epithets (Star of the Sea, Queen of Heaven, Cause of Our Joy), invocations (Theotokos, Panagia, Mother of Mercy) and other names (Our Lady of Loreto, Our Lady of Guadalupe). All of these titles refer to the same individual named Mary, and are used variably by Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and some Anglicans. A few of the titles given to Mary are dogmatic in nature. Many other titles are poetic or allegorical and have lesser or no canonical status, but which form part of popular piety, with varying degrees of acceptance by the clergy. Yet more titles refer to depictions of Mary in the history of art.
The event is free.
