    Under the Mayan Stars, Carlo Mejía

    Salvadoran artist Carlo Mejía serves as a conduit to the ancient Mayans, whose rooftop observatories were the wonders of the pre-Colombian world. His porcelain vases and colorful paintings are steeped in myth, with bold patterns and stylized faces that seem to gaze through time. Sales from the exhibition benefit the construction of “Hugh’s View,” The Studios’ rooftop terrace due to open late 2019.

    Solid Uncertainty, Michel Delgado

    Delgado works with the idea of experience – mining visual images for their emotional and spiritual content. Never having a preconceived image in mind, he seeks to portray things that are not obvious in reality, focusing instead on the composition and the balance of the work. This amalgamation of uncertainty and confidence brings his work to life in surprising ways.
