About the Event

As part of Footprints, a citywide celebration of art by immigrants & refugees, we are pleased to present works by five artists who represent the movement of people across nations. These outstanding artists are only a small sample of the artistic talent of newcomers in our region; from varied backgrounds, they have left their countries of origin due to political & economic reasons, artistic & intellectual interests, or simply as a result of our globalized world that seems to have removed borders. These artists have been featured in television, magazines, and newspapers, and have exhibited widely, and we are grateful to exhibit their works, which are parts of private and public collections in the United States and internationally.

The artists:

  • Poca Kim is a figurative painter, and writer of poetry, born and raised in South Korea. Poca moved to Kansas in 1998 and painting became her mode of artistic expression after she studied oil painting at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. She moved to Portland in 2016,
  • José Ventura was born in El Salvador. He went to school in San Pedro Nonualco and drove his teachers to despair by covering his notebooks with drawings instead of doing the work he was assigned.
  • Vera Kucera is a Czech artist who first emigrated to Germany, and then to the United States, to improve her life conditions. A civil engineer by training, she pursues her creativity through sculpture, stained glass window design, drawing and painting.
  • Sam Marroquin is always aware and processing what is going on in the world around us. News and ideas which are avoided by popular culture and media are the source for her work. Responding to the collective experience of fact and fiction she explores the authenticity of cultural information. Uncovering neglected narratives becomes a way of documenting current history while looking to the past as well as to the future.
  • Alvaro Tarrago is an eclectic painter and writer who seeks new forms of expression in a world limited by the lack of imagination. Strongly influenced by his living experiences in various countries in the Americas and Europe, he is a strong believer in multiculturalism and freedom in the arts.Learn more about the exhibit and 7*7 here: Footprints Brochure
