In the gallery May 4–31
The MJCC is proud to again partner with Memphis in May! We will be hosting an exhibit featuring the work of Columbian artist Dr. Saul Balagura.
Saul Balagura was born in Cali, Colombia. At age seventeen, he had his first solo exhibit. Throughout his life he moved in parallel universes of arts and sciences. The self-taught artist holds an M.D. from Universidad del Valle, a Ph.D. in Psychology from Princeton University and a Neurosurgery degree from Albert Einstein Medical Center. In 1994, he retired from the world of science and opened a studio, first in Tesuque, New Mexico and since 2006 in Houston, Texas. His expressionistic work is a direct result of the interaction of his background with artistic influences from artists as varied as William de Kooning, Eduardo Guayasamin, el Greco, Pablo Neruda and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States.
