The Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts – Turner House will present Octavio Medellin: "Spirit and Form" with Dr. Mark Castro with the Dallas Museum of Art and Plumas Mayas Antes y Ahora by artist Ricardo Alarcón.

Dr. Castro, the Jorge Baldor Curator of Latin American Art for the Dallas Museum of Art, will talk about how the first-ever museum introspective for Octavio Medellín (1907-1999), an influential Mexican American artist and teacher whose work helped shape the Texas art scene for six decades, came together. The DMA's exhibit, "Spirit and Form," includes a gallery displaying the sketches made by Medellín during his stay in the Yucatan in the 1930s.

The evening’s program will also include a small exhibit, "Plumas Mayas Antes y Ahora," by artist Ricardo Alarcón, of Mayan headdresses in the spirit of those sketches. The event begins with complimentary hors d'oeuvres, wine, sodas and sparkling water.
