Marcelina Gonzales received her Bachelor of Arts in Art from the University of Texas at Brownsville in 2013. Having been born and raised along the Mexican American border her entire life, Gonzales, through her work, seeks to break the preconception of what it means to be a Hispanic female. Gonzales’ work has been exhibited repeatedly throughout Texas to include such galleries such as the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art, Freight Gallery in San Antonio, Fort Worth’s Fort Works Art, and the El Paso International Museum of Art. In addition, she has also exhibited out of state and internationally at galleries such as the M. Rosetta Hunter Gallery in Seattle Washington, the Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts, NX2 Berlin Gallery, Vancouver, BC, and most recently, Zayed University in Dubai.
