Arte Américas, the largest Latino cultural center in Central California has opened a new exhibition, titled "KINDRED," to critical acclaim featuring the works of nine artists who create evocative, narrative-dense works. On Sunday February 18, artist and Cherokee elder Judy DeRosa will host a Native Storytelling gathering in the gallery where she will talk about her works and give deep context to the mythology that inspires the art. On Saturday March 24, photographer Rebecca Caraveo will host a two-hour workshop on "taking beautiful pictures with your phone through apps and photography techniques." Both events are offered at a cost of $5 with proceeds going to the artists for their time and fuel costs. A free artist reception will be hosted on Saturday March 3 from 1pm until 4pm that will include an introduction to the artists as well as opportunities to directly listen to them talk about their artwork. The event is family-friendly and open to the public.
