Presa House welcomes the return of Corpus Christi-based artist and designer Alexandria Canchola with "Yours to Keep," which features all-new work inspired by the artist’s grandmother.

The latest solo exhibition by Canchola explores the female perspective of a Cuban immigrant, focusing on her grandmother as the central character. The narrative sheds light on her life, challenges, and thoughts as a woman who pursued the American dream by leaving everything behind.

Abuela's story embodies an era when women had limited options, dedicating themselves to the roles of devoted wife and mother. The exhibition raises questions about assimilation and responsibility, highlighting themes of cultural identity.

Following the opening reception, the exhibition will remain on view by appointment through August 19.
