Wilfredo Valladares

May 30th-July 20, 2024

Our annual solo exhibit features artwork from an artist living outside of York. This solo exhibit will feature works by sculptor, Wilfredo Valladares. Valladares was born in Trujillo Colon, Honduras, Central America. He began his career as an artist and educator. Wilfredo arrived in the United States in the early nineties where he continued his journey as an artist by attending Montgomery College, then Maryland Institute College of Art and graduating with a BFA in sculpture. He pursued and received an MFA in sculpture at the University of Maryland. In 1997, Wilfredo had his first international sculpture show in Milan, Italy where he had the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse community of artists and curators. Wilfredo’s work is designed to cross boundaries and to move beyond the traditional paradigm of crosscultural art. A recent installation and one of his most notable commissions, “Journey : Anacostia,” — located in the historic neighborhood of Anacostia in Washington, DC — explores the interconnectedness of cultures.

An opening reception will be held at Creative York on Thursday, May 30 from 6 to 8pm.
