Barron Arts Center Presents:  Enrique Zaldivar: Artist of the Year Exhibit                       

Womens Health

The Barron Art Center presents: “The Barron Arts Center’s Artist of the Year Exhibit” Featuring Enrique Zaldivar – Joy of Motion.  The exhibit is On View from October 5-26 with the Artist’s Reception on Tues., Oct. 10, 2017 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.

ABOUT ENRIQUE ZALDIVAR:  Enrique Zaldivar is a Cuban painter based in the United States.  Zaldivar's paintings are characterized and inspired by the presence of nature in general - not to copy it, but to transform it through his eyes and his mind, to give us a unique and unrepeatable creation. We see in his works an intense and particular use of color, with a conscious use of complementary colors creating harmony and balance. Vibrant colors illuminate the canvas, a mixture of the tropical light of Cuba and the explosion of autumn colors in the United States.  For Zaldivar, each stroke is a way of reflecting life in its wide spectrum of situations, showing us its inner world and Zaldivar’s unique philosophy of life.
