Exhibit Highlighting Local and Regional Latino Artists at Ellarslie

and an afternoon of festivities in Cadwalader Park


In Spanish, Tertulia means gathering, especially a gathering of people interested in arts and culture. People of all ages and backgrounds are gathering at Ellarslie to appreciate the art and culture of Latino-Americans.

Visitors to the exhibit can expect to see work by well-known artists like hyper-realist and long-time Ellarslie exhibitor, David Rivera, Jose Anico showing striking modern landscapes, painting and sculpture by Dominican-born artist Julia Santos Solomon, and pieces by regional artists like Alvin Quinones whose figurative expressionistic work is being shown at Ellarslie for the first time.

Also on exhibit are two new connecting cultural displays: historic textiles selected from Central and South America from area collections of the Princeton Rug Society and artifacts of the Trenton Thunder baseball team associated with players from various Caribbean and Venezuelan locations.
