Reinaldo Gil Zambrano – MALAO’
The Northwest Arts Center presents Malao’, by artist and printmaker Reinaldo Gil Zambrano, Americas 2019: Paperworks Best of Show artist. On view from October 15 until November 19, his solo exhibition presents relief printing as a storytelling tool—using the medium to explore human relationships, universal experiences and the idea of home.
Originally from Caracas, Venezuela, Zambrano moved to Spokane, WA, after receiving his MFA from the University of Idaho. There he started RGZprintz, was involved in two community art collectives, and went on to co-found the Spokane Print & Publishing Center in 2019. Zambrano’s desire to promote printmaking and artistic collaboration has led him towards the development of such projects as ‘The Ink Rally’ and ‘Spokane Print Fest’ with other local non-profits. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Gonzaga University.
