Carmen Lomas Garza is a painter whose work is a record of the Chicana/o life she knew growing up in Kingsville, Texas, in the 1950s and 60s. She creates a visual language that narrates the rural Chicana/o experience, including celebrations, myths, healing ceremonies, family stories, and everyday life.
