Rise “UP” Spring Art Show set for Saturday

A unique art show is set for this Saturday, filled with art from local young adults, instructed by local artists.

Rise “UP” – Bridges the art education equity gap between disadvantaged and affluent young adults in the El Paso community through art classes in art history, murals, public/aerosol art history, ceramics, silk screening, and more.

These classes are lead by various local artists culminating in a collaborative The Junior League of El Paso, Inc. teamed up with the International Museum of Art El Paso, El Paso Human Services: the PRIDE Center and Winchester House and have had participants from the PRIDE Center taking part of these art classes.

This art show will be displaying these students’ works.

Artists Elisa Garrido, Grave Herrera, Gaspar Enriquez and Suzi Davidoff participated in teaching the students different mediums. The students learned sketching, charcoal, watercolor, acrylic, pop art and the silkscreen process. Rosa Guerrero gave an inspirational talk and Arturo Flores graciously helped with the art display.

Adair Margo, the sustaining advisor of the project gave a lecture on the Tom Lea mural at the Historic Courthouse. JJ Childress from Proper Printshop has helped with the silkscreen art.

The Rise “UP” project also created a classroom and silkscreen room at the International Museum of Art El Paso in which others can utilize.

Please join us to celebrate the amazing work the students from the PRIDE Center have accomplished and another successful project of the Junior League of El Paso, Inc. Event details are below.
