January 17 - February 28, 2015 Jerald Melberg Gallery presents a solo exhibition of new paintings, works on paper and sculpture by one Argentina’s most respected artists, Raul Diaz. Internationally known and exhibited, Diaz has been represented by the Gallery for over 15 years. Although he studied architecture, Diaz could not avoid the overwhelming call within himself to be a painter. Self-taught as such, he is well known in South America and is rapidly gaining recognition in Europe and the United States for his compelling, dream-like paintings and sculpture. Diaz was honored with a major solo exhibition at Museo Caraffa, Córdoba, Argentina, and his works can be found in the permanent collection of such institutions as the Mint Museum of Art and the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, CA.
On Saturday, January 17, at 11am, the exhibition will open to the public with Coffee & Conversation with the artist. On a rare visit to Charlotte, Diaz will speak about his work and answer questions with the assistance of an interpreter.
Jerald Melberg Gallery is located at 625 South Sharon Amity Road near the intersection with Providence Road. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm.
