Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. The aim was to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality.” Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself.Surrealist works feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur; however, many Surrealist artists and writers regard their work as an expression of the philosophical movement first and foremost, with the works being an artifact. Leader André Breton was explicit in his assertion that Surrealism was, above all, a revolutionary movement.

Remembering Selena Group Exhibition


Selena Invitation Small

One night only reception is Friday April 3rd 6 – 9 pm!

Selena Quintanilla-Pérez (April 16, 1971 – March 31, 1995), known by the mononym Selena, was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer. Called the Queen of Tejano music, her contributions to music and fashion made her one of the most celebrated Mexican American entertainers of the end of the 20th century as Hispanics elevated her into sainthood. She was named the “top Latin artist of the ’90s” and “Best selling Latin artist of the decade” by Billboard magazine, as well as the “Mexican equivalent” of Madonna.

EESG invites you to share how you remember Selena through art.

D.j. Twinkle-Toes Browncoat will keep you on your toes all night long!
