“Urban Cognizance”

We at the Paolo Mejia Fine Art and Design and Jack London Square Realty will be hosting “Urban Cognizance”, a duet art show showcasing paintings by Michael Sacramento and Justin Pastores, at our annex facility in Oakland.

Urban Cognizance is about creative awareness of Justin Pastores and Michael Sacramento’s environment. Justin observes and paints with a social perspective regarding immigrants and their response to living in a different culture. Michael acts as a recorder and interpreter of his immediate day to day surroundings. Being that they both live in the same environment in the San Francisco Bay Area, they seemingly share the same aesthetic. However, the effect of their artwork is nuanced by their subject matter and delivery. Justin tends to focus on people and with the use of a more figurative painterly style, while Michael focuses on the collage of surfaces and images. Together, Justin and Michael’s exhibition aims to provide viewers a new lens in which to see their world and inspire them to look at their surroundings with a keener eye.

This art show will further explore and relay the idea of Acculturation theory and the Fourfold model through minorities who immigrate and raise their families in a new dominant hosting culture. Individuals, families, and communities respond with either Assimilation, Separation, Integration, or Marginalization. Other aspects along with the Fourfold model are responses to sub cultures, generation disparities, identity, gentrification, and the results of recession.

art show:       October 2 – November 29

“Burnt Rice” by EPEKTO Arts Project

burnt-rice-e-flyer-2Exhibit:   January 6 – 26

Location:

Wailoa Center
200 Piopio Street
Hilo, Hawaii 96720

Statement:

While living in the US, our heritage stems from the Philippines; and many of us continue to hold a strong bond to our customs & culture. “Burnt Rice” explores these customs through the form of a spiritual connection to both plants and animals. Flora and fauna can symbolize a type of ‘grounding’ of energies. Rice holds a special link to both our culture as Filipinos as it is a staple to our diet and the plant itself is commonly seen throughout the archipelago of the Philippines. This plant is so directly linked to our being, as it provides physical sustenance, nourishes our soul, and continues our connection to our heritage. This will be Epekto Art Project’s first out of state exhibit.
