Galería Sin Fronteras – Opening Reception

January 16, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


In 1986 a small commercial gallery opened on the East Side of Austin, TX in a predominantly Mexican neighborhood. Inspired by the ideals of Sister Karen Boccalero (1933-97) and the social conscious mission of Self-Help Graphics in East L.A., Galería Sin Fronteras (Gallery Without Boarders) specialized in Chicano, Latin American, and Caribbean art. For thirteen years the Galería was instrumental in commissioning new works, coordinating exhibitions, and promoting emergent Latino artists. Their First-Voice approach resulted in exhibitions that were consciously connected to the social and political realities of their community.

This exhibition showcases Chicano based artwork from the collection of professor Gilberto Cárdenas, the founder of Galería Sin Fronteras.
