HCC gallery features American Indian painter

Mateo Romero, Pueblo Deer Dancers.
Published Oct. 29, 2013

Mateo Romero is a third-generation American Indian painter who lives and works in New Mexico. His mixed media works are often traditional, with men and women in ceremonial dress and dance, as seen here. But he also addresses social issues such as alcoholism and violence that are often present on reservations. A show of his work opens Saturday at Hillsborough Community College Ybor Art Gallery, Palm Avenue and 15th Street, Tampa. A free reception and gallery talk by the artist are from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Then at 7:30 p.m. musician Arvel Bird will perform his signature blend of Celtic and American Indian music in the nearby theater. Free.
