Fresno’s monthly event which gives the public an opportunity to meet different artists and check out galleries and studios is coming up this week.
You guessed it, ArtHop will be this Thursday in Downtown Fresno, featuring various artists and their work. In addition to the creative work, ArtHop will be presenting artist Malaquias Montoya’s ‘A Voice for the Voiceless’ exhibition.
Raised in the San Joaquin Valley, Montoya is a Chicano artist whose art reflects his political beliefs. Through paintings, charcoals, oil pastels and silkscreens, three prominent themes are present: justice, empowerment and international struggle. He is also one of the founders of the social serigraphy movement in the San Francisco Bay Area in the mid-1960s, according to a Fresno State news release.
This event begins at 5:00 p.m. and is free to attend.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Center for Creativity and the Arts and the Department of Art and Design.
