At Cara and Cabezas Contemporary, we believe that art provides the most truthful and diverse expression of our times. There are stories that can only be told through the arts because mainstream information sources have censored or ignored them. We strongly feel that the experience of viewing art that challenges conventional ideas can contribute to one's mental and emotional growth. We work with closely with collectors to build thoughtful collections that reflect one's own beliefs expressed through the creativity of another. We believe that the business of selling and acquiring fine art is a form of fair trade that contributes to the vibrancy of a city’s cultural landscape. The following portfolio is a cross-section of the artists and artworks we have represented over the last decade.
