Open Window: Emilio Sanchez on Paper
Charlottesville, Virginia
through June 20, 2022

The Fralin Museum of Art is presenting the exhibition “Open Window: Emilio Sanchez on Paper.” It marks a homecoming for Emilio Sanchez (1921–1999), the Cuban-born artist who spent much of his life in the U.S., including two years at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Soon he headed to New York, which served as a launchpad for his extensive travels worldwide to investigate the effects of light and shadow on buildings and landscapes.

Selected by curator Laura Minton, the 21 works on view demonstrate Sanchez’s delight in the natural patterns and shadows cast by bright sunlight on façades, doors, windows, and shutters, particularly in the Caribbean, Latin America, and North America.
