Opening in Larchmont, NY this Saturday at One River School of Art + Design Gallery, is “Color Speaks Truth: A Solo Exhibition of Works by Franck De Las Mercedes”.
"De Las Mercedes’ work showcases a joyful energy through movement and color that pulls the viewer into the compositions. Once there, the viewer encounters explorations of various ideas of culture, political commentary and truth. This exhibition continues One River's goal to showcase New York artists with a strong voice who our students and community can learn from and engage with both on the visual level and to enhance their own art making journeys."
