The Garden City Community College Fine Arts Department will present “Southwest Psychedelia,” a mixed-genre exhibition by Isaac and Shawna Sandoval, in Mercer Gallery for the month of February .
After receiving their masters of fine arts from Fort Hays State University in 2012, Isaac and Shawna Sandoval have become restaurateurs in historic, Las Vegas, N.M. Beginning with a successful food truck, they opened the “Giant Skillet” in 2017.
The Sandovals have continued to make and create spaces in their collaborative work. For “Southwest Psychedelia,” they integrate the idea of space, family, place and traditional Mexican, Indian and cowboy imagery in a mish-mash of old, new and psychedelic fun times. Originally created for the gallery space “Mayeur Projects” in Las Vegas, N.M., this will be the first traveling stop for the exhibit.
A reception in conjunction with the First Fridays of Garden City Arts, Patrick Dugan’s and Downtown Vision will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday. An artist’s workshop and talk will be held on the GCCC campus from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb 23.
Admission to the gallery is free. Mercer Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and by appointment. For more information, contact Brian McCallum at firstname.lastname@example.org, (620) 640-7953 or the GCCC Art Department office at (620) 276 9540.
