San Fernando-based artist Rick Ortega will have his opening reception tonight, Feb. 28, 6-10 p.m., for his “Corazon Y Vida” exhibit.
Ortega’s paintings tend to incorporate indigenous symbols from Mexico’s past and many view his work as mystical. Margaret Garcia, who will be curating tonight’s reception at Casa 0101, says of Ortega and his work, “Each painting for him is a prayer.”
