|Tres Mundos: Tres Expreciónes is on display at the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center from Nov. 8 to Dec. 17.|
The work of three master painters will be featured in the exhibit Tres Mundos: Tres Expresiones, on display at the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center from Nov. 8 to Dec. 17. To celebrate the exhibit's opening, world-known Latin Jazz band Chevere (led by band leader and percussionist Rudy Regalado) will perform during the opening reception at the Downtown Center on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 6-8 p.m.
Tres Mundos is a collaboration among Mexican painter Roberto Rosique, Hispanic-American painter Gregg Stone and Chicano artist Emigdio Vasquez. The three artists provide snapshots of Latino life and represent the contrasting lives of Latinos in the Western World. Stone's watercolors depict the realities of daily Mexican life, Rosique's oils represent surreal visions of crossing the border, and Vasquez's oils portray narratives on Chicano life in Los Angeles.
Regalado and his five-person ensemble have traveled throughout the world, performing at numerous summer festivals. In addition, they have created television scores for companies such as Dr. Pepper and the California State Lottery. They have also made appearances on television shows such as The Tonight Show, American Bandstand and The Nancy Wilson Show.
The Chevere concert is part of the opening reception, scheduled Nov. 12, from 6-9 p.m. The concert is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the Recording Industries Music Performance Fund through the assistance of the Processional Musicians Union Local 47.
A second reception will be Dec. 10, from 6-9 p.m. Both receptions are held in conjunction with the Arts Colonys Second Saturday Artwalk event with free gallery openings, live music, shops and restaurants all in a six-block radius.
The music, reception and exhibit are all open to the public and free of charge. For more information, contact Cybele Garcia at (909) 469-0080.
