Other Worlds by Oscar Alvarez at Brownsville Museum of Fine Arts

Brownsville Museum of Fine Arts presents "Other Worlds" by self taught local artist Oscar Alvarez. The show features works dating from early 2000 to works completed 2010 which sets the direction of the show of more of a 10yr retrospective. Oscar whom has been noted to have begun painting since 1999, has learned to dominate his pallet and surrealist style which has been said to have become reflective in his work. I think its exciting to see the work of a young artist in a venue as big as the BMFA, an opportunity which may allow the artist to reflect in his work at an early stage and perhaps a tool to be used as a stepping stone to greateness.
It was unfortunate that head curator Jenifer Cahn was said to have left the BMFA before the show openned perhaps changing the outcome of this art exhibit. "Other Worlds" was hosted by new assistant curator Laura Ochoa.
The show has a lot to offer everyone. Some works that are sure to take you beyond imagination perhaps the "other worlds" that exist in the brush of this talented artist.

We all should wonder Why She Left before the Ignauration, Is it because Oscar is a Mexican - American, Chicano ?

For whatever reason she left, is her own personal reason and she is entitle to it. There is no sense in assuming anything. It is unfortunate that the BMFA is just begun and already has seen personel come and go, but for those still onboard, they can use everyones support..
