The FAC and Denver's Havu Gallery were jointly awarded a Denver Westword "Best Of" award for "Best Two-Part Solo Exhibition-2011."

The William Havu Gallery is currently showing Lobato's most recent work in a show entitled Casi, Casi. Concurrently, the FAC is showing a mid-career retrospective curated by Tariana Navas-Nieves, Emlio Lobato: Mi Linda Soledad (My Beautiful Solitude).

Together, the two shows earned this glowing write-up:
Lobato's pieces invariably refer to his roots in the San Luis Valley, typically through the use of Spanish titles and somber palettes — but the paintings themselves have an international flavor incorporating various abstract influences, notably minimalism and expressionism. And he resolves these opposites brilliantly.
