A must see art exhibition for individuals interested in becoming socially conscious on the problem of intolerance in American society.

For Hispanic Heritage Month 2010, Soraida Martinez, the artist known since 1992 for creating Verdadism paintings with written social commentaries on tolerance and understanding, is having a showing at the Verdadism Art Gallery from September 17th to October 29th for an exhibition/discussion addressing stereotypes, ethnocentrism, gender bias and religious intolerance. The opening reception is being held on Friday, September 24th, from 6-9PM. Exhibition and Opening Reception by appointment only.


PR9.NET September 17, 2010 - Philadelphia, New York City Metro Area - In today's current climate of intolerance towards women, immigrants, alternative lifestyles and religious affiliations, this exhibition is a must see for individuals interested in becoming socially conscious on the problem of intolerance in American society.

Since 1992 Soraida has been known for this socially conscious art style, which she calls Verdadism, a word that she created by combining the Spanish word for truth (verdad) and the English word for theory (ism). Recognized for her innovative artistic achievements, Soraida has been chosen twice (in 2008 and 2009) as one of the 15 most prominent Hispanic Americans in the arts shaping the U.S. cultural scene.
Born in Harlem, New York City, in 1956, Soraida's exposure to the equal rights movement of the 1960's was a major influence in her desire to paint and speak about the truth. For almost 20 years now, the Art of Verdadism has influenced the work of contemporary artists and writers, with the Verdadism paintings used by educators nationwide to teach tolerance, diversity and truth seeking.

An innovator in her thoughts and progressive in her thinking, Soraida's Verdadism paintings, many of which were created prior to the turn of the century, address the social issues and concerns that are just now being openly discussed in American society. Some of the paintings in this exhibition are: ©1992 Interracial Family: The Way Society Sees It (a painting that portrays the uncomfortable feelings experienced by people who are prejudice, when they see two people of different races get together); ©1995 Speaking To the Labeled Kids (a painting expressing the way in which society labels children and how this labeling is very toxic to a young mind that is just being developed); ©2000 America…So Sophisticated and Yet So Primitive…When It Comes to Giving Our People Medical Care (a painting about the health system in America and how some people suffer because they can't afford medical care).

This exhibition and art talk is by appointment only. Soraida often brings her paintings to schools; teachers are encouraged to schedule an appointment to bring their students to the Verdadism Art Gallery.
