DAY OF THE DEAD SHOW (September 27-October 21)
The 12th annual “Day of the Dead” show at Guardino Gallery is not to be missed. This year 55 artists are asked to interpret this Latino tradition and make it their own. This show features paintings, ceramics, fabric, wood, embroidery and more. All with the Day of the Dead theme. Opens Last Thursday, September 27, 6-9pm with art, live music, public altars, costumes. The show will run through Oct 21.
This year we will take over the Main Gallery and the Feature Area. It will be the largest Day of the Dead show here with 59 artists. This is a loving celebration about taking away the mystique of death, art raging from lighthearted to deeply profound.
We have added another Public Altar to the show. In addition to the altar for remembrance of our family members and friends, we have added a Pet Altar for our pet companions. Bring pictures, small tokens or add to the growing slips of paper available here. Join in the celebration.
