Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL) is pleased to present Portraits of Latino
Immigrants , an exhibition of paintings by Jessica Alazraki. Opening the week of the presidential election, the exhibition offers glimpses into the everyday lives of Latinx families in the US with its combination of bright patterns and colors and muted expressions; it is a reminder of a common humanity that we share even in
politically heated and divisive times. The artist is a recipient of the 2020 Queens Art Fund New Work Grant,
awarded by the Queens Council on the Arts.
Originally from Mexico City, Jessica Alazraki is based in New York City. Her oil paintings are a celebration of Latinx life in the US and aim to highlight family values. Narratives are interior scenes of ordinary life. Bright colors and decorative patterns are very characteristic of Jessica’s work.
Portraits of Latino Immigrants Exhibition is made possible by the Queens Council on the Arts
with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership
with the City Council. Presented in partnership with the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning.
