Language of my Soul Exhibiton

Artwork by Gordon Arzu 

May 7 - June 21, 2024

On May 23, from 6 pm to 8 pm, join us for the opening reception of Language of My Soul by Honduran painter and artist Gordon Santiago Arzú Durón. As a believer in inherent beauty and nobility in each human, Gordon produces cerebral mixed-media portraits that accentuate the personalities of his subjects. At a young age, Gordon discovered his love for the arts and would often draw characters with animalistic qualities. He later produced sculptures from wood and other found objects. At the age of twenty-three, Gordon immigrated to the United States and studied fine art at Three Rivers Community College in Norwich, Connecticut. Ever since then, he has consistently produced artwork while refining his eclectic style.
