Antigua, Guatemala (Nov. 14, 2018): Galeria Panza Verde is proud to exhibit the poetic new work of artist Kurtis Brand in a deeply moving show called “Quemada” (Burn).

The show represents a variety of works from 2D wall art to 3D sculpture. The opening had a marimba score playing modern Jazz notes with Brand’s exploration into local culture, complete with a bronze masa sculpture and 6 bronzed tortillas on display.
