Past Exhibit

Over the Rainbow: Alfredo Arreguín

April 27 – June 3

The Dance of the Black Fish, 2016, Oil/canvas, Alfredo Arreguin

If you're planning to visit this exhibit please know that we will be closed on Monday, May 29 for Memorial Day.

Known for intricate and highly detailed paintings, Mexican-born painter Alfredo Arreguín is featured in the solo exhibition, "Over the Rainbow", in the Schack's mezzanine gallery from April 27 - June 3, 2017.

For decades Arreguín has specialized in creating canvases exploding with ornate patterns and bright colors. His paintings often include imagery of pre-Columbian cultures, the landscapes of Mexico and portraits of iconic cultural figures such as the painter Frida Kahlo.

This solo exhibit will be a small retrospective covering many periods of his work since arriving in the Pacific Northwest more than six decades ago.

Learn more about Arreguín in this recent article on the Inverate Gallery blog.

About Alfredo Arreguín

Arreguín left his native Morelia for Mexico City at age thirteen, and then moved to Seattle in 1956. After completion of his military service in Korea, he attended the University of Washington, receiving his BA in 1967 and his MFA in 1969. His works have been shown nationally and abroad, and are now housed in some of the most prestigious collections. Thus, he has become the most prominent Latino artist from the Pacific Northwest. 

Arreguín se marchó de Morelia, su lugar de nacimiento, a la Ciudad de México, DF a la edad de trece años, y posteriormente, en 1956, se mudó a Seattle. Después de cumplir con su servicio militar en Corea, ingresó a la Universidad de Washington, en donde obtuvo su licenciatura (BA) en 1967 y su Maestría en Bellas Artes (MFA) en 1969. Sus obras se han mostrado en innumerables exposiciones a lo largo del país y en el extranjero, y están ya recogidas en varias importantes colecciones, todo lo cual lo ha convertido en el artista de origen latinoamericano más prominentes de esta región.
