Celeste De Luna is an artist/printmaker from the lower Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. Rooted in a Chicana feminist perspective, she seeks to tease out the intricacies of living in and along the borderlands in her art as well as a narrative world builder who envisions the past, present and futuristic frontera. De Luna is a self-taught printmaker whose work includes large-scale woodcut prints and fabric installation. She is a cofounder of the socially engaged art collective Las Imaginistas, an accomplished home cook, and cultural advocate. Her recipes appear in the book “Don’t Count the Tortillas” by Adan Medrano and she also appears in his film Truly Texas Mexican advocating for traditional food, street vendors, and cultural life ways. Currently, she lives in San Antonio, works out of her home studio, Metzli Press, and teaches Mexican-American Studies and Art for Northwest Vista College. “A true daughter of the borderlands, her art celebrates the quotidian and the exceptional on the border,” writes Ines Hernandez-Avila.
