  • Cristina Cardenas' work will be on view at Tucson's YWCA at the end of this month.

Explore vibrant Mexican landscapes and images of strong women through the work of Tucson-based artist Cristina Cardenas. A collection of some of Cardenas' pieces is now on view at the YWCA Francis McClelland Community Center.

Originally from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Cardenas' work focuses on making a political statement through images of empowerment. You may recognize Cardenas' style from her work on a ceramic mural for the street car, though her work has also been shown locally and internationally in the last two decades.

The exhibition at the YWCA will display her work in the last decade, including large scale pieces on amarate paper.

Cristina Cardenas' "Los Ojos de Mujer Artista que Emigra" or "The Eyes of the Immigrant Woman Artist" will be at the community center, which is located at 525 N. Bonita Ave., until Thursday, Feb. 19. You can view the exhibition from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. now until then for free. However, there will also be a special artist reception on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 6 until 8 p.m.

For more information and other events, visit the YWCA Tucson website.
