Art Of Authenticity, Main Event Gallery
June 4 @ 11:00 am - June 26 @ 5:00 pm PDTFree
Armando Mejorado is a self-taught artist, photographer and acclaimed culinary chef. Working in many different forms and styles of art, his greatest passion has been to be creative. This is evident in his abstract, cubism and surrealism styles of art, being greatly influenced by the works of Pablo Picasso and of Freda Kahlo. His paintings are rivaled only by the artistic presentation of foods he has prepared in Armando’s Gallery House and Restaurant in Redding, California.
Mejorado is the featured artist for the Main Event Gallery’s exhibit, “The Art of Authenticity, ” June 4-26, with an opening reception Saturday, June 5th, 6-10 pm, 710 Main Street Red Bluff. Gallery members will also exhibit their interpretation of art portraying them or someone’s authentic self or authenticity, in general.
“Regardless of the subject matter, I think of what I paint as art, said Armando. I hope when people see it, they think of it as emotion and they can relate to it and potentially feel what I feel, or have their own feeling that I don’t,” said Armando. ” I hope people will walk away thinking a little bit differently than they used to about art.”
Mejorado’s culinary talents are well known. “I really enjoy turning my food into artwork,” he said. His creativity paid off as Armando was 3rd finalist in his category in a recent contest held by Bon Appetit Magazine.
The event is sponsored by the Tehama County Arts Council. Gallery hours are Thurs.-Sat, 11 am -5 pm. For information email email@example.com
