The American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center will open its 2012 season on Saturday, January 28, with four new exhibitions,between them “Gabarrón’s Roots”. First Time in D.C. for World Renowned Spanish Artist.
When he was only 16 years old, Spanish artist Cristóbal Gabarrón decided he was going to be an artist. By the age of 19, he was exhibiting regularly. Gabarrón, now in his 60s, has shown his paintings and sculptures in hundreds of exhibitions around the world, but never in Washington, D.C.
In Gabarrón’s Roots, his exhibition at the American University Museum, vibrantly colored sculptures are larger than life, but human in scale and effect. His painted tondos (circular works of art) evoke archaeological and zoological mysteries. The exhibition is one of the museum’s continuing collaborations with the Embassy of Spain.
