MYTH | Joseph Magaña
OCT. 2 – Nov. 2, 2018 | RECEPTION THURSDAY, OCT. 11, 6-8PM

We are pleased to exhibit work by illustrator, Joesph Magaña, in the Micro Gallery for the month of October. Myth is an exhibit focusing primarily on contemporary takes of figures and concepts originating from global mythology & folklore. There is always a pithy reflection in dissecting views of the world held by those who came before us. The narrative and moral relevancy of adapting the universal and primordial themes found in old legends for the modern stage is something that has fascinated the artist forever. To examine and reinvent storytelling is the ultimate course of an existence bound to hindsight, fluidity, and the omnipresent journey for self improvement and change.

Joseph is a Latinx illustrator born, raised, and currently living in Reno, Nevada. They are an artist mainly focused on an age old love for folktales, the macabre, and storytelling, with a love for the medium of ink. When not working on art, they can probably be found blasting drone metal, playing guitar, and petting cute animals.

Myth will be in view in the Micro Gallery located inside Bibo Coffee Co. at 945 Record St. from Oct. 2 – Nov. 2. Join us for a reception with the artist on Thursday, Oct. 11 from 6-8pm.
