Art Window
On view through June 1, 2021
Doug Adams Gallery
Berkeley, California

Take a stroll by the GTU North Building (2465 LeConte Ave.) and see the work of Elizabeth Jiménez Montelongo, a Santa Clara-based visual artist.

Jiménez Montelongo’s impasto textured oil paintings of Mexika (Aztec) dancers exude energy and power to celebrate the continued existence of indigenous dance that could not be suppressed. Her work is inspired by Bay Area Mexika dancers who continue the traditions of indigenous Mexican dance into the 21st century, across social and political borders. The paintings on display honor the artist’s indigenous ancestors, as well as local culture-keepers, while inspiring a powerful, liberating vision for the future.

Join us on Thursday, November 12 from 5-6pm in front of the GTU North Building for a socially distanced opening reception! Please email [email protected] to RSVP.

(This window exhibition features work by a different artist every month, so be sure to keep an eye out for whose work to expect next!)
