The Decisive Dream – Photographs by Cuban-American artist Gory (Rogelio López Marín)
The Decisive Dream, featuring the photographs of Cuban-American artist Gory (Rogelio López Marín), will be on view Aug. 24-Oct. 5 in the S. Tucker Cooke Gallery in UNC Asheville’s Owen Hall. An opening reception with curator Cynthia Canejo, UNC Asheville associate professor of art history, will be held in the gallery from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 24.
“Gory is one of the most important artists from Latin America,” notes Canejo. “He is both a photographer and a photorealist painter who came to the U.S. in 1991. Using a variety of techniques, his photos extend beyond physical reality. His presentation last spring at UNC Asheville received such a great response that we are excited to be able to exhibit his photographs now in Asheville.”
Gory was a 2017 recipient of a prestigious Pollack/Krasner Foundation grant and his works are in many permanent collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Havana’s Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes.
Tucker Cooke Gallery is open from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on weekdays and the exhibition is free and open to everyone. For more information, visit https://art.unca.edu/gory-decisive-dream.
