Columbia, SC– As we prepare to travel into a new decade, experience a new exhibit that paints the journey of a local artist’s travel abroad. Bitácora/Travelogue goes on display Friday, December 20 in The Gallery at Richland Library.


The exhibit features 40 pieces, which encompass watercolor paintings, high-resolution reproductions and personal travel journals of Alejandro García Lemos. It documents the process of change through travel and movement, offering his impressions of each destination.
Lemos is the founder of Palmetto & LUNA, a non-profit organization that promotes Latino arts and cultures in South Carolina. He says, “Traveling becomes a way (if not the best way) of learning, of self-awareness and of internal questioning, and drawing becomes the means to express those feelings of constant flux and change.”


Join us for an opening reception later that evening from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at our Main location (1431 Assembly Street) to meet and interact with the artist. The after-hours event is free and open to the public, and it includes a musical performance by Son del Sur.


Bitácora/Travelogue runs through February 28, 2020.
