This exhibition premiered in San Benito's Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center in 2015. Sam Rawls and Melissa Vega first curated the exhibit while studying at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. The Late Professor Carlos Gomez suggested the exhibition's name, which has become an established and recurring theme. Since its debut in 2015, MUJER-ERES has been displayed throughout the Rio Grande Valley. Many talented women artists have participated in this exhibition locally, nationally, and internationally. In March 2022, the show returned after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, with over twenty women artists each bringing their vibrancy and expressive art.
MUJER-ERES is an exhibition highlighting the artwork made by women artists to showcase their expressions through art from different perspectives. This exhibition is co-curated by Samantha Rawls and Ruby E. Garza. Rawls is a recent Masters in Fine Arts graduate from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, and she specializes in painting figurative artwork with oil, gouache, and watercolor. Garza owns La Chicharra Art studio, specializing in printmaking and painting.
This year's exhibition comprises thirty-one merging and established artists from the Rio Grande Valley. The collection will include diverse media such as oil paintings, sculptures, etc. This year's exhibition will inspire more women artists to participate in showcasing their artwork in the years to come.
