Nearly 30 artists from Puerto Peñasco and invited guests have their art on display in Paris as part of a collective exhibition entitled “La Virgen de Guadalupe.”
The collective exhibition will be on display Feb. 19 – 25 at the Galería Métanoïa du París. This has been made possible through the joint efforts of the artists themselves, private initiatives, and the City of Puerto Peñasco.
The artists freely created their work inspired by the theme: La Virgen de Guadalupe, and while not necessarily religious, the pieces emphasized the importance of the Virgen de Guadalupe as a symbol of Mexican identity. The exhibit invites viewers to redirect their attention into the inner world.
The art was sent to Paris, France in November and has already been mounted for the nearly weeklong exhibit.
This exhibit was promoted by International Liaison from the Office of Art and Culture, along with Manuel Martínez from the group “Miércoles de Visuales.”
