Butter Gallery presents Las Ilustres; a group exhibition of notable latina female illustrators in Miami. Referencing the spanish phrase mostly reserved for illustrious women, by definition “Las Ilustres” applies to women celebrated for a specific activity. As a title, the phonetical and grammatical similarities between “Las Ilustres” and “Las Ilustradoras” (a group of female illustrators); alludes to the role of the gallery in identifying a selected group of artists and presenting them as distinguished in the field of visual representation while acknowledging the contributions of latina women to our city’s cultural landscape.
Featuring Serena Dominguez, Danielle Estefan, Nicole Salcedo, Nicole Salgar, Cinthia Santos, Amliv Sotomayor and Tatiana Suarez as Las Ilustres, the exhibit consists of seven individual diptychs (two adjacent 8x10 pieces per artist) reflecting their particular style of illustration. Curated by Butter gallery’s director Francisco De La Torre; the exhibit also marks the debut of Butter Gallery artist and Wynwood Muralseditor Diana Larrea in the local curatorial arena, as Co-Curator of Las Ilustres. Larrea’s participation will also include photographic documentation of the exhibit and the participating artists’ processes.
