Exhibition La Poética del Gesto, Iván Tovar
April 04, 2019
Dream, whisper, sensuality curl up in magic drawings. However, audacity and refinement take the paths of a new dimension, perhaps more austere. Here, they transmit a less baroque and contorted intensity of their vertigos.

Lucy García Arte Contemporáneo is pleased to present the new exhibition from artist Engel Leonardo titled Jimayaco. As the curator Emiliano Valdés said: "Engel Leonardo's work is a careful study of the Caribbean and of his native Dominican Republic through the form, the traditions and craftsmanship, and the changes -social, political, cultural- that the country suffered during the XXth century and what goes on the XXIst". Jimayaco is not the exception, an exhibition that from its title honors the dominicanidad as well as the tradition and artisan wealth of the country.

Adornos Recientes, new solo exhibition from artist Dalton Gata
May 12, 2017
The artist, obsessed with light, needs to imitate surfaces and textures through painting as part of his exploratory artistic process. This sample evidences the reference to diversity and the slightly-dark mood characteristic of Dalton Gata: Objects and ornaments are presented as living characters who seem to pose, in an atmosphere of very intimate complicity.
Adornos Recientes tells us about accumulating, collecting, and decorating, but more than anything: it is a glimpse of the current moment in Dalton's journey as an artist and his aesthetic concerns. Evidencing more than ever his intention to make us reflect on the old-fashioned, almost diffuse relationship of empathy between the piece of art and the observer.
Davidoff Art Initiative: Patricia Castillo (Patutus)
March 03, 2017
Patricia Castillo will be a Davidoff Art Initiative artist in residence at Künstlerhaus Bethanien Berlin, Germany. From April to June 2017.
"My visual productions arise of different questions, from the idea of how humans can get their welfare and all external elements involved in this context. In every creation I try to arouse concern about who we are. Exposing our state of consciousness, and in this, the humanization process in which we find ourselves and the search for whom we really are".

Volta NY 2016 #KeepsIt100
March 13, 2016
"Nine years on and VOLTA NY is going strong, staking its position as a globally conscious fair for new art and reaffirming the fundamental point that a solo focus on artists is the standard — not the exception — for cultivating a critical and collecting base. The resounding praise from today's distinguished press, from Observer to Hyperallergic to The New York Times, emphasizes VOLTA's efforts on the international scene and its accessible solo-project format, and visitors responded with feeling, with a record-breaking 25,000 visiting through Sunday, including repeat trips from key patrons.
(...) Lucy García Gallery (Santo Domingo) likewise received considerable attention for Domincan artist Jorge Pineda's latest body of work, selling all four parts of his Superego series on paper to a New York institution and more works to the Dominican Republic. (...)".
Dalton Gata: Aún Otros, solo exhibition
February 16, 2016
From March 11 to April 17 Lucy García Arte Contemporáneo, in collaboration with Centro Cultural de España Santo Domingo, will be presenting Aún Otros, a solo exhibition by Cuban artist Dalton Gata. "It is the feeling of not having finished, the disorientation amid an ambiguous idea. Aún Otros is the second attempt of a repetitive soliloquy looking for a definitive and simpler way to say or show. Still obsessive and lonely, still with the same desire to be someone else, I keep looking in the faces that haunt me, in strange perspectives that are suddenly abstract, my own space." - Dalton Gata.
