Eduardo Pelayo, BFA Exhibition
Gallery 231
opening reception: Friday, Nov. 16th - 6PM
Eduardo Pelayo presents Inevitability on Friday November 16, 2018. The gallery opening reception will be at 6pm in Gallery 231 in Randall Hall on the campus of Central Washington University. The exhibition will run through November 21, 2018.
Inevitability represents how Eduardo’s greatest fear in life is to become like the men he has grown up observing, the men that take advantage of women, abuse them, and belittle them. Eduardo has been made a victim to the atrocity’s men commit. He inevitably sees the connection to these men. In his art he creates wire figures to illustrate the power that men have over women. His oil paintings, while representing various men are intended to demonstrate they will all fail in a relationship, if they follow the examples of the men in his family. His photographs represent the struggle that women have to carry while they nurture men.
“Men can all look different but at the end of the day we are all men and represented as men will always do what men do.” Eduardo explains. “Using representational material and postures I challenge my viewers to process the meaning to what they see.”

Zimbabwe Stone Sculptor: Alexander Chitungo
Artist Talk and Demonstration and temporary exhibition
4pm - 6pm - TUES., NOVEMBER 20, 2018
A display of stone sculptures of the students from the Shona Stone class
Visiting artist Alexander Chitungo is a stone sculptor from Zimbabwe. He is currently teaching a Shona Stone Sculpture workshop.
Alexander was born in a small town in Marodera, Zimbabwe. Alexander completed his Ordinary Level at Prince Edward School in 1986, in Zimbabwe’s capital of Harare. In 1990 he began apprenticing under his friends Tonderai Marezva and Lincoln Muteta, renowned Shona Sculptors. After two years Alexander set out on his own to develop his unique style, which he calls “shadows in the stone” (Mumvuri mudombo). His work reflects the theme “Voices of Reality”. Alexander has been sculpting stone in Zimbabwe for more than 20 years.
Alexander lives in Chitungwiza, near Harare, with his wife and children. His work is exhibited around the world, from South Africa to The United States. Alexander travels every year to share his passion in sculpting workshops.
