This exhibition at the Verdadism Art Gallery includes paintings from the early years of Verdadism (1992 to 2007), with recent Verdadism paintings and drawings continuing Soraida’s motif of “a deeper understanding of the human soul.”

My Verdadism art has come of age. The social issues that I painted and wrote about 21 years ago are embodied in the events happening in the world today.

Created in 1992 by artist, designer and social activist, Soraida Martinez, the art of Verdadism promotes social change and addresses the issues that continue to plague American society. Soraida’s Verdadism paintings are juxtaposed with written social commentaries on race, gender, ethnicity, stereotypes, alienation, and personal life experiences. Over 40 works-of-art consisting of original paintings and drawings will be on exhibit. This new exhibition at the Verdadism Art Gallery includes paintings from the early years of Verdadism (1992 to 2007), with recent Verdadism paintings and drawings continuing Soraida’s motif of “a deeper understanding of the human soul.”

The exhibition opens Saturday, April 13th, from 2-5PM, and runs until Saturday, June 15th. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres served. Acoustic guitar and vocal music performed by The Troubadour KP. Soraida welcomes students, faculty and administrators from the University of Pennsylvania, Temple, Drexel and other universities to attend this event at the Verdadism Art Gallery.

The gallery is located at 220 S. Berlin Road in Lindenwold. For more information, visit http://www.soraida.com/exhibit.htm. Attendance is limited and by appointment only. RSVP by calling 856-346-3131 or sending an email to soraida(at)soraida(dot)com.
