The City College Center for the Arts is ringing in the Fall with the solo exhibit, Void of Death,‘ by artist Julio Mejia.  Majia, who exhibited at the College in 2014 as part of Smoke School of Art’s traveling group show ‘Calculated Resistance,’ will be showing eight featured paintings ~ works that were created during a self-imposed period of isolation “meant to exorcise his demons.”  The large-scale works are a mix of acrylic on panel and oil on canvas. One piece entitled “Memoria del Guego” (Memory of Fire) was created using bullets, rust and milled bone on panel, in a reflection of his own experience with counterterrorism in Peru in the 1990s.
