18th Street Arts Center Airport Campus

Join 18th Street Arts Center (18SAC), artist Karla Diaz and curator Irene Georgia Tsatsos for the opening reception of Karla Diaz: Wait ’til Your Mother Gets Home, Diaz’s solo exhibition at 18SAC’s Propeller Gallery. A guided walkthrough by Diaz and Tsatsos will begin at 5:30 PM.

As a child, artist Karla Diaz would often get in trouble for drawing on walls. “Wait ‘til your mother gets home!” her aunt would exclaim.  Diaz still loves to draw and paint. Karla Diaz: Wait ’til Your Mother Gets Home features her recent works on paper and canvas that focus on American Mexican identity from the 1970s to the present, emphasizing a cultural context of social upheaval and justice through her explorations of recollection and imagination. Diaz’s vivid, narrative paintings and works on paper depict portraits and landscapes of people and places that inform her memories growing up in Los Angeles and Mexico.

Light refreshments will be served.
