Berkeley College is pleased to announce that the work of Mexican artist Victor M. Trejo, on display at its Midtown Manhattan Gallery, 3 East 43rd Street, New York City, has been extended through October 31, 2016. The exhibit can be viewed Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm and on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Mr. Trejo is a self-taught artist who grew up on a Mexican ranch. He painted whatever he saw, seeing his work as miracles of poetic creation. In his later years, he was inspired by the artists Wassily Kandinsky and Piet Mondrian and by the poetry of Arthur Rimbaud and Walt Whitman.
“I believe that my abstract compositions become figurative images that reflect, I hope, my love for nature and a very optimistic view of life,” said Mr. Trejo.
“In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, from mid September through mid October, we arranged for Mr. Trejo’s artwork to go on display on September 1, 2016,” said Robert Keiber, Curator, Berkeley College Midtown Manhattan Gallery. “He’s a wonderful artist whose work epitomizes the excitement and beauty of today’s Latin American culture. I’m glad we were able to extend the exhibit.”
For more information about the exhibit, e-mail Mr. Keiber at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-252-2065.
