Royse Contemporary presents ‘Golden Hour,’ which is the solo exhibition of renowned artist Gennaro Garcia.

This exhibition showcases a multi-media collection of his latest artwork with gold leaf which includes a variety of paintings, monosilk prints and giclees.

“Gennaro strives to create art in every technique, style, color, texture, always evolving within his art,” said Nicole Royse, curator at Royse Contemporary. “This exhibition highlights the artist’s distinctive style, fresh voice, engaging subject matter and vivid creations. He Infuses his work with familiar imagery and subjects that are inspired by his dual identities as both Mexican and American giving us a true authentic Latino immigrant perspective.”

Mr. Garcia is a native of San Luis, Sonora, Mexico, migrating to Arizona in his early 20s with drive, passion and the desire to create art. His work is featured in numerous galleries and private collections in both the United States and Mexico, including representation by Royse Contemporary in Scottsdale.

He is the recipient of several awards including the Masters of the Southwest Award presented by Phoenix Home & Garden and the Hispanic Heritage Award presented by Cox Communications and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Mr. Garcia is the resident artist at Xico Inc. Latin & Native American Arts Organization. As a seasoned artist, advocate, and chef, Mr. Garcia has brilliantly melded together all of his passions. He has bridged his love and passion for the arts and the culinary world by venturing into the restaurant design field. He has worked on many restaurants: Barrio Queen, Tio Chano, El Sonorense, Ghost Ranch, Salt, Galaxy Taco and is the co-owner of Taco Chelo in Downtown Phoenix, and the soon-to-open new Tempe location.

The ‘Golden Hour’ exhibition is on display from Jan. 11 through Feb. 4 at Royse Contemporary, 7077 E. Main Street, in Old Town Scottsdale.
