Graciela Perrone Art Gallery
2214 Frankfort Ave.
April 29 Reception: Free; 6-9 p.m.
The Alhambra is a palace in Granada, Spain, that was built in the mid-14th century by Moorish rulers. It is now one of Spain’s major tourist attractions and acts as a museum of Islamic architecture. Artist, dancer and gallery owner Graciela Perrone was inspired by the Alhambra and wanted to paint a series that depicted the women of the ancient palace, including flamenco dancers Brenna O’Hara and Juliana Bravo.
“I have been working on a project for more than two years and decided to paint part of it,” Perrone says. “I present some of the characters of the story in this exhibit, painting visions I never painted before.”
Joining Perrone’s show are Carlos Gamez de Francisco and Victor Manuel Velazquez. There will be an opening reception Thursday night featuring flamenco dancing and more. —Sara Havens
