The Art of Collecting: The Mateo Blanco Collection at Osceola Arts, Sept. 6- Nov. 4

A selection of works by Colombian artist Enrique Grau from the Mateo Blanco Collection will be on display in the Studio Gallery at Osceola Arts from September 6 through November 4.

At Osceola Arts – Florida-based artist and art collector, Mateo Blanco has been collecting modern art from his native Colombia as means of self-expression. The emotions evoked with acquiring a work of art is deeply personal, whether you identify with the subject or if the colors take your breath away, that deep connection between you and the artwork you acquire is priceless. Some collectors consider themselves cultural custodians while others use art as a way to forge new connections and learn.

A selection of works by Colombian artist Enrique Grau from the Mateo Blanco Collection will be on display in the Studio Gallery at Osceola Arts from September 6 through November 4.

Enrique Grau was one of the major Colombian artists of his time, alongside Fernando Botero and Alejandro Obregón, the latter of whom was a major influence on Grau’s work. Grau garnered attention for developing a representational style counter to the popularity of the geometric abstraction of his time. He was renowned for his depictions of indigenous people, as well as his attention to the human figure. His compositions often featured incongruous combinations of objects as still lifes; these images were not intended as narratives, but rather as formal studies of shapes and texture. Though he was best known for his prints, paintings, and murals, he began in the late 1980s to create sculptures.

A free art reception will be held on Saturday, September 17, from 2-5pm. Osceola Arts exhibits are always free and open to the public. For more information contact marilyn@osceolaarts.org, or go to www.osceolaarts.org
