Highlighting the rich intergenerational connections in the Chicana/o Art community. By partnering elders with fellow up and coming artists, this unique exhibition will explore how experiences of the past helped nurture the future generation.
About the Artists:
Stevon Lucero has been painting for over forty years. Since childhood, he has experienced lucid dreams and visions and ventured more than once into separate realities. Through these revelations and studies of metaphysical, philosophical, and historical media, he has been guided to create two unique art forms: Metarealism and Neo-Precolumbian or Aztec art. Stevon is on a spiritual journey that is ever evolving. Each of his pieces tell a story in which the ultimate intent and value lies in the future, where people will have a greater understanding and appreciation for true spiritual art.

I have been a member since the early gallery days. Wherever Chac moved I followed. The various artists in the gallery have had a large influence on my work and have welcomed my different artistic styles throughout the years. My work has a wide range of artistic materials and mediums. I am not only a photographer but also a painter and a Santera (wood carver)."
