Artist Javier Arces, Welcome to the Ranch!
Spanish mixed media artist Javier Arce joined us at the residency for the month of March. During his stay, Javier had a very successful exhibit at the opening of the Minnesota Street Project with Jack Fischer Gallery featuring his installation of pen on crushed tyvek, called Seeing the Elephant. His series was inspired by the many subcultures of America throughout history, from motorcycle gangs, to cowboys to the Black Pather movement, what can be referred to as “The Other America.” Here are a few photos from his show.
