Sculptures by Zulay Quintana
February 26-March 24, 2009

Kicking off the spring art season, we have two painters and one sculptor, two Venezuelans and one Brazilian,in the next exhibit at Onda. Rita Urdaneta, one of Onda's represented artists, will show a new group of paintings in her distinctive graphic style. Wilson Neto, a young Brazilian artist developing his presence in the US and Europe, brings paintings of women from various ethnicities portrayed in bright colors and intricate textures. Zulay Quintana, like Urdaneta originally from Venezuela, creates sculptures of powerful women engaged in active athletic pursuits.

All three artists have extensive exhibit history - Urdaneta in Canada and the US, Neto in Brazil and recently in Germany, and Quintana in Venezuela and Houston where she currently lives and works.
