The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center presents local Chicana artists Sarah Castillo, Arlene Mejorado and Adriana Monsalve in side-by-side exhibitions exploring feminine perspectives through photography and multi-media works.

"Chicana Feelings" works to actualize a tactile reality of Mestiza consciousness; a response to what has been rejected and embraced, the process of resolving conflict and loss in the context of mental health. This exhibition engages dialogue between anonymity and preservation through self-portraiture, paintings, video, and installation, while "Entre Orillas" is a photography exhibit with parallel works by Arlene Mejorado and Adriana Monsalve.

The exhibition aims to create a space for conversations around the borderlands, existing binaries, femme, queerness and women themes. The exhibition is an act of cohesive and parallel storytelling that broadens the narrative on themes too often shown in one dimension. The exhibition will be accompanied by the book Femme Frontera by Arlene Mejorado and Adriana Monsalve.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 26, 2018.
