 Yancy Villa-Calvo Art Opening and Sephardic Celebration

Opening Reception

Tuesday September 16, 7–9pm

On display in the gallery Sep 16–Nov 9

Yancy was born in Mexico City and has lived in Memphis for almost 20 years. She has also lived and traveled in Latin America, Africa, and Europe. The freedom of spirit from painting with acrylic, an experience that she accidentally discovered while in college, changed the course of her life. After experiencing health issues, she developed a passion to portray the beauty in the simple things that matter in life. The use of vivid colors naturally emerges from her Latino background and the combination of gold and dark browns from her intense experiences in Africa. Being an immigrant has allowed her to appreciate the passion of her culture and the richness of her home town using the fusion to express and create. Yancy has spent the last year studying the Sephardic Culture with the help of local Sephardic Community members. Her interests have inspired her to create a body of work that celebrates the Sephardic history. We will celebrate the opening with traditional Sephardic food and music to create a fun family evening.
