Alumnus Raul De Lara opens a new exhibition of works at Austin’s Big Ass Canvas with Miami-based artist Leonardo Moliero on Friday, June 23, 2017. The opening reception will be held at the downtown 2nd street gallery from 6-9pm.
Graduating from UT Austin in 2015 with a BFA in Studio Art, De Lara’s undergraduate successes paved the way to his time in Chicago post-graduation. De Lara has spent the past few years working on the production team at Nick Cave’s studio, exhibiting his own work and being awarded the Luminarts Fellowships for excellence in visual arts in Chicago. In the Fall of 2017, De Lara will attend Virginia Commonwealth University to pursue his MFA in the VCU Sculpture Program.
