Heights Arts puts spotlight on work by Valdivieso Troya
Heights Arts launches a new series of spotlight exhibitions on Jan. 29, with a show featuring works by Heights artist Rafael Valdivieso Troya.
Born in Ecuador and now a Cleveland Heights resident, Valdivieso Troya creates intricate compositions using pen and ink, wash, acrylic, and collage techniques. A single work might contain hundreds of figures or faces layered into imaginary spaces that evoke a sense of teeming wildness, and intertwine themes of human joy and struggle. Works in this exhibition range from smaller pen-and-ink drawings to a large muralistic painting.
Heights Arts invites the community to an opening reception with the artist on Friday, Jan. 29, 6–9 p.m. The exhibition will be on view in the spotlight gallery through March 12.
Mary Ryan is on staff at Heights Arts, a nonprofit community arts organization.
