“Kepler-186f,” Paintings by Reneé Treviño
Sep 1 all-day

Opening Reception: Thursday, August 28, 5:30 – 7:30pm. (Artist Talk: 6pm)

Baltimore based artist René Treviño exhibits a collection of paintings and drawings, including a new series titled “Kepler-186f” that centers on the themes of the celestial and the patriotic.

Although the newly discovered planet Kepler-186f is in the title of the exhibition, Treviño says that he is using this more as a metaphor: “A blank slate for new ideas and ideologies…a place where we might get things right this time…even as I’m fully aware that westward expansion is problematic and that it is 500 light years away anyway, so in some ways the point is moot.”

He added, “Throughout my work are themes of identity; I am interested in challenging traditional ideas of race and sexual orientation. I feel compelled to make thoughtful and beautiful work that confronts societal assumptions and gives new insight into our human experience. Wrapped up in this conversation will be historic flags, primarily of the United States, but also places were homosexuality is illegal and punishable by law, like Russia, Iran and Nigeria.”

Born in Kingsville, Texas, Treviño uses icons, images and artifacts in his works. He earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from MICA’s Mount Royal School of Art and has exhibited in group exhibitions across the United States, as well as in solo exhibitions at C. Grimaldis Gallery, Creative Alliance and School 33 Art Center in Baltimore. Currently exhibitions coordinator at School 33, Baltimore City Paper named him the “Best Local Artist” in 2006. He was a finalist for the Sondheim Prize in 2006 and a semi-finalist 2007, and received both the Trawick Prize and a Creative Baltimore Fund Artist Grant in 2009. http://renetrevino.net

“Kepler-186f,” Paintings by Reneé Treviño
Sep 11 all-day

Opening Reception: Thursday, August 28, 5:30 – 7:30pm. (Artist Talk: 6pm)

Baltimore based artist René Treviño exhibits a collection of paintings and drawings, including a new series titled “Kepler-186f” that centers on the themes of the celestial and the patriotic.

Although the newly discovered planet Kepler-186f is in the title of the exhibition, Treviño says that he is using this more as a metaphor: “A blank slate for new ideas and ideologies…a place where we might get things right this time…even as I’m fully aware that westward expansion is problematic and that it is 500 light years away anyway, so in some ways the point is moot.”

He added, “Throughout my work are themes of identity; I am interested in challenging traditional ideas of race and sexual orientation. I feel compelled to make thoughtful and beautiful work that confronts societal assumptions and gives new insight into our human experience. Wrapped up in this conversation will be historic flags, primarily of the United States, but also places were homosexuality is illegal and punishable by law, like Russia, Iran and Nigeria.”

Born in Kingsville, Texas, Treviño uses icons, images and artifacts in his works. He earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from MICA’s Mount Royal School of Art and has exhibited in group exhibitions across the United States, as well as in solo exhibitions at C. Grimaldis Gallery, Creative Alliance and School 33 Art Center in Baltimore. Currently exhibitions coordinator at School 33, Baltimore City Paper named him the “Best Local Artist” in 2006. He was a finalist for the Sondheim Prize in 2006 and a semi-finalist 2007, and received both the Trawick Prize and a Creative Baltimore Fund Artist Grant in 2009. http://renetrevino.net
