Gilda Garza “the most influential artist in Mexico” brings kings
VENICE, Italy, Sept. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Known as “Mexico’s most influential artist,” Gilda Garza is an internationally acclaimed painter constantly pushing the boundaries between emotion and art. As America approaches September’s Hispanic Heritage Month, this award-winning Mexican native prepares to make history with a moving collaborative collection by sculptural artist Mario Furlan in a live exhibit in New Murano, Atelier Muranese. On Wednesday, September 28, the legendary Venetian glassmaker will create the “Glass Kings” series – a commemorative limited edition of the artist’s best-known pieces from his “Kings and Queens” collection.
“I’ve always put my heart and soul into my work,” Garza shares. “I am extremely grateful to be making an impact in the real world through art – the thing I love most. It is a true honor to see my influence and efforts reflected in a unique interpretation of glass by the historic New Murano gallery in Venice.
Widely considered the master of the sculptural art of Murano, Mario Furlan will transform Garza’s epic pieces into three-dimensional glass structures in front of a live audience of exhibition visitors. The finished works will then be exhibited in the Atelier Muranese workshop, which is over 1,500 years old. Through the presentation of master glassmakers, artworks, conceptual art and collectible design, the Venetian Gallery supports the creative vision of Murano/Venetian craft culture. The Gilda Garza “Glass Queen” exhibition serves their ongoing mission of exhibiting the process of creative art, from interpretation to object, using the age-old skills of Muranese high craftsmanship.
In the United States, Garza’s work can also be seen in an exclusive jewelry collection at Jason of Beverly Hills, Roberto Cavalli Haute Couture and the House of Bijan on Rodeo Drive. Garza was officially recognized for her cultural contributions by the Senate of the Constitutional Republic House of Senators of the Honorable Congress of the Union in Mexico City. She is also acclaimed for donating $80,000 from the sale of a painting inspired by Vice President Kamala Harris to the World Woman Foundation, which has pledged to empower one million female artists by 2030.
