From Aug. 1-31, Rob Schouten Gallery in Langley will present new paintings by painter Alfredo Arreguín.

At 85, Alfredo still paints daily and continues to engage the audience with a range of intriguing paintings that further explore his portrayal of Frida Kahlo and others, as well as Mayan and Northwest mythological motifs.

The Seattle-based artist’s colorful pattern paintings radiate an ethereal presence that transport the viewer to a plane of spirit and mystery.

The exhibition consists of 19 new and recent paintings that can be seen on the gallery’s website as well.

The exhibit “Facade: What Lies Beneath the Surface,” featuring paintings by Anne Belov, continues through July 28.
