New Gallery in the DMV

From my good friend Gabriella Rosso:

RoFa Projects  is very happy to announce the opening of our new space in the Kentlands, Gaithersburg, MD on Friday, June 17, 2022, in partnership with Beta Gallery.

RoFa Projects (founded in 2014 in Potomac MD) focuses on consolidating art as a powerful tool for social action and as a generator of critical spaces. Working with  artists that have different visions of the sociopolitical processes  that  we live  throughout  the world  and  who understand the importance of global thinking.

RoFa projects has three branches: RoFa Art, RoFa Projects and  La Morada.

Beta Gallery (founded in 2014 in Bogotá, Colombia) has focused its search on contemporary artists in the Colombian and Latin American scene. In 2016, it incorporated Proyecto ZETA linking urban artists to the gallery space.

Both galleries have joined to work together, bringing Latin-American Art to this beautiful new space.

Their next show,  In the Heart of the Beholder, brings together 10 contemporary artists that take us to the immense possibilities that the portrait offers. Painting on canvas, photography, sculpture and even stencil are placed at the mercy of creation, beauty and the heart of the beholder.

Pigments used in the Renaissance, metal printing, photo performance, oil and spray portray emotions,  identity, poetic intensity and beauty from a contemporary approach.

Artists: Ana De Orbegoso (Perú); Avelino Sala (Spain); Cecilia Paredes (Perú); DJLU Juegasiempre (Colombia); ERRE (Colombia): Fabian Ugalde (México); Muriel Hasbun (El Salvador); Natalia Revilla (Perú); Salustiano (Spain) and Walterio Iraheta (El Salvador).
