Emilio Sanchez: No Way Home. Images of the Caribbean and New York City
October 23, 2012
In honor of Hispanic Heritage month, The Louise and Bernard Palitz Gallery at Syracuse University Lubin House is pleased to present Emilio Sanchez: No Way Home. Images of the Caribbean and New York City. The exhibition contains 19 objects and examines the artist’s long interest in depicting the effects natural light had on residential and urban architecture.
“Emilio Sanchez made images of New York that combined an abiding interest in architecture with a signature use of pattern, composition and brilliant lighting gained from a lifetime spent in Cuba and the Caribbean,” says David L. Prince, Associate Director and Curator of Collections of the SUArt Galleries, who also notes that Sanchez’s urban architectural images reflect those of Charles Sheeler and Edward Hopper.
A reception was held for the exhibit in mid October. David Prince informed guests on the collection and how it was acquired by the University. You can view his gallery talk in the video below.
