Rupert Garcia: The Magnolia Editions Projects 1991–2011

February 19, 2011July 17, 2011

Renowned Bay Area artist Rupert Garcia is committed to creating artwork not only as a means of achieving aesthetic ends, but also as a viable way of addressing social and political concerns. Through his bold silkscreens and layered pastels and paintings, Garcia catalyzes discussion and debate in a broad audience about the pressing issues that have faced the late 20th and early 21st centuries. His recent editions elaborate on his political concerns, as well as addressing his interest in challenging notions of folk and high art.
