Esto Somos (This is us) is the first duo exhibition by painter Elizabeth Munzón and printmaker Edgar Martínez opening with a reception on Saturday January 14th from 6-9pm at the Artist Coop in Long Beach, Ca. This exhibition will feature new and collaborative works inspired by their individual art practice and shared viewpoints and experiences.
At the forefront of this exhibition are collaborative pieces that merge oil painting and printmaking, symbolic for the attraction of opposition that is true for the artists long standing partnership and new venture into artistic partnership.
