Yesterday, the gallery hosted the exhibit and auction, United by Love for Life 2 Laredos, benefitting the organization, Manos de Maria. This group forms an outreach program which teaches life skills to the adolescent youth of both Laredos. The event featured artists from the sister cities who donated their pieces for sale to the appreciative audience.
On September 23, we kicked off our annual photography exhibit 'fotoseptiembre'. This year we feature photographers, Jaque Geissler and Rafael Garcia. Mrs. Geissler passed away earlier this year and her family submitted her life's work and experiences on her behalf while Mr. Garcia's pieces are abstract and metaphoric. Both artists' works are meant to compliment each other and are integral to the overall experience as one goes through the exhibit. The Human Condition Exhibit will be on display at the Gallery until October 23. Those who missed the opening are encouraged to stop by this Friday, October 2, during the city's monthly caminarte.
Last night the Gallery's first annual 'Selfish' exhibit opened. The opening day was a huge success with a full house and plenty of new comers. The exhibit was an open call to all artists encouraging them to submit a self-portrait. Over 40 submissions on various mediums were on display, from acrylic on canvas to 3D figurines to art installations. The show was a one of a kind! The pieces will remain on display throughout the month of July and all are encouraged to drop by and pay a visit! For those who missed yesterday, the Gallery will be open tonight in conjunction with today's caminarte. Below are pictures from last night's opening. Enjoy!
