The Vanishing of a People - An exhibit of works in oil on canvas pastel on paper and limited edition prints by emerging artist Agustin C. Bravo. Bravo was born in Los Angeles, but spent almost ten years growing up in a small Mexican village where he still has many relatives. During this sentimental visist, Bravo is captived by the simple traditions of the humble Mexican people. Because his visits are often short, Bravo records these images in his painting.
