About Alonso

His parents encouraged Miguel Alonso to go to art classes at the age of 7.  At 14, he began screen-printing at Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer (TANA) in his hometown of Woodland, CA.

Miguel found silk-screening techniques challenging at first, but the staff at TANA encouraged him to continue to hone his skills, including TANA cofounder Malaquias Montoya. Alonso has worked in this medium for thirteen years and has attended numerous workshops at TANA. Though he finds animal drawing difficult and challenging, he also finds it intriguing. He has also studied techniques in wood and linoleum carving in order to create block prints.

Miguel has created art work for Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) posters and the logo for the community program Youth Empowerment Summit of Yolo County (YES!). At 17, he earned an award for “Democracy Works” and for outstanding leadership on the YES! planning committee.  He has also submitted work to competitions hosted by Stroll Through History, Inc. in Woodland. He currently attends Woodland Community College and continues his studio work at TANA.

About the Exhibit

Miguel will exhibit ten highly detailed works of wild animals printed in silkscreen. He will have screen prints available for purchase at his 2nd Friday ArtAbout reception on May 13 from 6 pm to 8 pm at Logos Books in Davis, CA. Public receptions for local artists will also be held at various venues on that same evening in conjunction with the Davis Downtown 2nd Friday ArtAbout, facebook.com/davisartabout.

TANA is a collaborative partnership between the Chicana/o Studies department at UC Davis and the greater Woodland community. TANA offers a fully functioning silkscreen studio, Chicano/Latino arts exhibition space, and a teaching center for the arts. Through exhibiting, printing, and teaching, TANA cultivates the cultural and artistic life of the community, viewing the arts as essential to a community’s development and well-being.
