People overcoming hardship and staking claim to a place provide the inspirational thread for the paintings of Maceo Montoya, the featured artist in the July exhibition at Gallery 625 in Woodland.

Montoya grew up in Elmira and graduated from Yale University in 2002. He received his master of fine arts degree in painting from Columbia University in 2006, and has lived in Woodland since that time.

A painter and a writer, Montoya has exhibited his work around the country and internationally. His first novel, “The Scoundrel and the Optimist,” was published in 2010 by Bilingual Press. The Indiana Review described it as “a vigorous book, full of humor and gnarled beauty, whose simple, furious language captures the world of a precocious adolescent.”

Montoya, an assistant professor in the Chicana/o studies department at UC Davis, will attend the exhibition’s opening reception, which will run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday. It coincides with Woodland’s downtown First Friday Art Walk. Copies of his novel will be available for purchase and signing.

Gallery 625, in the County Administration Building, 625 Court St. in Woodland, has regular gallery viewing hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For more information, call YoloArts at (530) 406-4844 or visit http://www.yoloarts.org.
