Five of Orange County's leading Latino artists will be featured at the Hunt Branch Library exhibit, "Obras de Oclan," which opens today.
OCLAN, the Orange County Latino Artist Network, works to enhance the ethnic, historic and social traditions of the local Latino community.
Artists featured are muralist Emidgio Vasquez, whose work has been exhibited throughout the nation and in Fullerton; Ben Valenzuela, whose drawings and paintings have been shown throughout the Western United States and in Mexico City; Art Valenzuela, who has exhibited throughout Mexico and Southern California; Henry Godines, a self-taught oil painter; and Abram Moya Jr., a commercial and fine artist.
In honor of the exhibit--and in celebration of Mexican Independence Day--a free public reception will be Sept. 16, 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hunt Branch Library, 201 S. Basque Ave. The exhibit, which runs through Oct. 29, is free to the public.
