Guadulesa Rivera Hosts Reception to Celebrate New Art Book


Award-winning artist Guadulesa will be hosting an exclusive art reception to celebrate her upcoming new art book, Matrix 5; Tones of Resonance. The artist will be available to meet the public at Cafe de Leche, 5000 York Blvd. at the corner of Avenue 50 in the Highland Park section of Los Angeles, Friday, January 24th,6PM-8PM. The event is free, and refreshments will be served.

Several of the paintings that will be in the solo exhibit on the 24th were created in live performance on stage in Boston, Los Angeles, and New York City.


A new leader of the rapidly growing ranks of female abstract artists in Southern California, the award winning fine artist Guadulesa has become known for abstract or loosely figurative works of art, which reflect spontaneity, strong rhythm, texture, and color blends. The visual artist is a Boston native and former resident of the Piano Factory.

After studying, she began her art career in Los Angeles, California, where she began to exhibit her work and painted sets for the theatre, television and the film industry. Exhibitions at Ligoa Duncan Gallery in New York City led to her discovery in Paris in 1981, where she won Le Prix de Peinture du Centenaire de Raymond Duncan at L’Academie des Duncan. (The academy was established by the famous dancer, Isadora Duncan.)

Guadulesa’s work is also included in the Massachusetts collections of the Black Indian Inn, the Harriet Tubman Gallery, and The Cambridge Lawyers Guild. Further of her works are also be found in private collections throughout the United States, including Puerto Rico and St. Croix, as well as Mexico, Israel and Spain.

In the summer of 2013, Guadulesa released a painting, “Boston – Survivors’ Tribute,” dedicated to the survivors and victims of the Boston Marathon. In the fall of 2013, Guadulesa launched her first project on Kickstarter, which successfully received funding. The project, titled Matrix 5; Tones of Resonance, will culminate in an art book published by the painter detailing her journey through the ‘healing tones of pure sound’ which she used to paint with in this series, as taught by her Native American Cherokee ancestors.
