A founding member of the Cuban Collective, Los Carpinteros, international artist Alexandre Arrechea creates a new exhibition at ArtYard in Frenchtown, NJ. We meet the artist during his residency there as he creates monumental work, including a watercolor made with water drawn from the nearby Delaware River. Curator Elsa Mora describes how growing up in Cuba affected Arrechea’s work.
