Hispanic artist showcases her work in Long Beach exploring race, gender and history

Long Beach, CA (KABC)-Partial Pictures is an exhibition on Long Beach by 33-year-old artist Gabriella Sanchez.

Located in the Latin American Museum of Art, it exhibits 17 works including paintings, sculptures and videos.

“I think we’ve already had about 900 attendees in the last three weeks,” said Solidar Salas, vice president of content and programming.

Gabriella says her work at the gallery spans years covering her family, friends, and her own life experience.

She says her inspiration comes from Los Angeles and personal places.

“I think the life you know is just about to exist every day in my own life, my family, my loved ones, and the lives of my friends,” Sanchez said.

“One of the most important and powerful experiences you can experience when you visit is that you can lead to many questions about identity, immigration and race,” said Chief Curator Gabriella Ultiga.

Gabriella also incorporates photographs into his work to represent fragments of reality and images.

She contains concerns about social and political topics such as race and gender.

“It’s supposed to push the viewer back and make them think a little more about how the image and meaning evolve into someone,” Sanchez said.

Gabriella’s art will be on display until January. If you want to relax at home and see her work, you can also take a virtual tour at the Latin American Museum of Art.

The Latin American Museum of Art is located at 628 Alamites Avenue in Long Beach, California.
