Exhibition - Art in the Garden: Marbles In The Valley by Nancy Paredes

Sunday, Sep 29, 2019 from 8:00am to 6:00pm


Marbles in the Valley is an exhibition of prints and photographs that portrays nostalgic landscapes reminiscent of the native countries of the borough’s diverse communities. Born and raised in Corona, Queens to Honduran parents, artist Nancy Paredes depicts the distorted memories of immigrants and the imaginings of a first generation.

This exhibition centers around a series of collagraphs of abstract landscapes printed from the layering of plastic shopping bags. Accompanying the collagraphs are otherworldly photographs that extend into a different timeline, offering a second perspective of these familiar places. Traveling through remembrance and interpretation, these visual memories reveal a storytelling of home between immigrants and their children. The artist unites the fleeting worlds of migrant families into a new space, materializing the redefinition of culture in a distant settlement.

This installation is on exhibit from September 13, 2019 - December 22, 2019.
