Over the past four decades, Margaret Garcia has been a leader in the L.A. Chicano Art Movement, championing women, community, and those individuals who are marginalized by society. As a teacher and mentor, Margaret has inspired and encouraged artists to challenge their talents and many of those artists, have emerged and found their ‘unique voices’ in their artwork. All her students are encouraged to reach into their souls and create Art, that is authentic to self, and reflective in their passion for the subjects they are painting.
Margaret has created a body of work that captures and encapsulates culture, family, and urban life/landscapes. Her most recent work, many shown here for the first time, was done in Ventura County. Margaret Garcia: Arte Para La Gente is on display at the Museum of Ventura County October 9, 2020 — January 31, 2021.
