ROBERT BERMAN GALLERY will be showcasing artworks that the gallery has been showing since 1979 at his first Santa Monica gallery. On view will be select works from two of the important historical exhibitions/books Hispanic Art In the United States: Thirty Contemporary Painters and Sculptors (1987) and Le Demon Des Anges (France, 1989). Works in the exhibition will start from the 1950's with works by Martin Ramírez (in conjunction with RICCO/MARESCA Gallery), then on through the 1960’s with works by Fulgencia F. Corral, then to the 1970's with works by Carlos Almaraz and will go through important works by other Chicana/o and Latino artists including Robert Graham, John Valadez, Frank Romero, Richard Duardo, Harry Gamboa and others up through the 21st century. Also featured from the Hispanic Art in the United States exhibition will be unique works by Cuban artists Paul Sierra and Carlos Alfonzo.  Aside from major paintings and works on paper from these seminal artists, the show will include much of the ephemera and documentation of the L.A. Chicana/o artists from the last quarter of the 20th century and on into the 21st century.  

A special featured exhibition of the works by Martin Ramirez will be on view courtesy of the Martin Ramirez Estate and RICCO/MARESCA Gallery.
