The ArtHop exhibition “Malaquias Montoya, A Voice for the Voiceless” will open at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, at the M Street Graduate Studios in Downtown Fresno (1419 M St., Fresno). The community is invited to this free event to enjoy the works of Malaquías Montoya, one of the founders of the social serigraphy movement in the San Francisco Bay Area in the mid-1960s.

The paintings, silkscreens, charcoals and oil pastels address three prominent themes: injustice, empowerment and international struggle. A companion catalogue will be available for purchase for $20. The exhibition is sponsored by the Center for Creativity and the Arts and the Department of Art and Design.

The exhibition will be on display from noon to 4 p.m. Fridays through Sundays or by appointment until March 29.
