About The Event

“Reflections of Culture”

A Reflection of Our Culture from the Feminine Perspective

Please join Chicano Humanities and Arts Council (CHAC Gallery) and Women’s Caucus for ART Colorado Chapter (WCACO) on March 2nd, 2024 from 5pm-8pm for the opening reception of “Reflections of Culture” at The Armory Performing Arts Center (300 Strong Street Brighton, CO). This is a one-of-a-kind art exhibition featuring women artists in our communities and culture(s) through their art. “Our cultures and backgrounds are as unique to each individual as grains of sand, each informed by our ancestors, communities, and geography,” said Executive Director of CHAC Gallery Brende Gurule. As women and artists, we take in our backgrounds and surroundings, contemplate what it means to us, and produce works of art that are reflections of our life experiences. This is what this collaboration exhibit between the Chicano Humanities and Arts Council and Women’s Caucus for ART Colorado Chapter will present in “Reflections of Culture ''. This exhibit is curated by Leslie Lefferdink, Judy Miranda, Lyndy Bush, Brenda Gurule, and Asia Fajardo-Diamond.

This evening will feature a women’s jazz quartet, a women’s Mariachi ensemble, open-bar and refreshments.  This event is free and open to the public. “Reflections of Culture” is a chance to support and experience the strength of women artists within our community and learn about the great tapestries of their cultures. “Reflections of Culture” is a wonderful way to celebrate Women’s History Month. Women’s History Month is the month of March, during which women’s contributions to society are highlighted.

The Reflections of Culture logo is a collaboration between artists Judy Miranda and Lyndy Bush. In Mesoamerican art, double-headed serpents represent the sun as it travels across the sky, and more generally transformation. This is a great representation of art. As artists, we take an idea and bring it to form, and it becomes a piece of the artist. The flowers represent beauty, endurance, and femininity. Together this logo embodies the growth women artists experience through their lives and how that is reflected in their art.

The Colorado Chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art (WCA) operates as its own 501(c)(3) organization and is the largest of the 15 nationwide chapters. WCA is committed to recognizing the contribution of women in the arts; providing women with leadership opportunities and professional development; expanding networking and exhibition opportunities for women, supporting local, national, and global art activism; and advocating for equity in the arts for all.

CHAC Gallery & Cultural Center (CHAC Gallery) was founded in 1978 by a group of visual and performing artists. The organization was established as a place where Chicano/Latino artists were provided with a venue to explore visual and performance art and promote and preserve Chicano/Latino culture through the expression of the arts. CHAC is an inclusive community of creatives that are dedicated to preserving, showcasing, educating, and reflecting the essence of Chicano/a/x, Latino/a/x and other multicultural/multiracial communities.
