This is a very important show…it is our heritage show, featuring retablos, bultos and tinwork that are the heart and soul of the Spanish Colonial Art, our inheritance here.
WE ARE FEATURING THE TINWORK OF MASTER TIN ARTIST GENE GURULÉ, SR., ALONG WITH HIS APPRENTICE, YVONNE ARAGÓN.
The call for work was open to all local artists and craftspeople, for traditional and contemporary art, and was curated by local Las Vegas santero, Adrian Montoya. Adrian is living in Albuquerque these days, but he was born and raised right here, and trained by our very own Cruz Flores. In true santero style, Adrian is training his daughter Mya and his nieces as well. They are all repeat Spanish Market artists.
Local sculptors/santeros Peter Lopez (El Campesino in the Plaza Park) has two pieces for sale, and Margarito Mondragón (Nuestra Señora de Dolores de Las Vegas Grandes, also in Plaza Park) is exhibiting his work to honor the memory of his dear friend, Gene.
Other artists included are Anna Aragon, Karyn Drum, Kristy Klaiber, June Lopez, Kathy McCoy, Adrian Montoya, Mya Montoya, Jerry Montoya, and Terry Mossman.
There are over 50 wonderful works of art for sale, and more than a dozen pieces by Gene Gurulé and Margarito Mondragón to appreciate.
Gallery 140 also has several vintage Fiesta posters for sale for only $5.00, donated by Jose Maestas as a fundraiser for Las Vegas Arts Council. The 2021 Fiestecita poster honoring Cove Heroes by Carmelita Sanchez is also for sale for $5.00 which will go to the 2022 Fiesta Fund.
Masks are requested as we try to stay safe and shop Las Vegas.
We usually have beautiful fall weather with a little snow once or twice to reminds us to winterize. The weather in guaranteed to surprise us. Just like Covid! We had October’s show scheduled since 2020, but the artists withdrew at the last minute due to the pandemic.
So the October show will be a surprise for all of us…we will keep you posted!
