New exhibits at O.M.O and Small Works

By Jim Corcoran and Ralph Amaroso
Patricia Fabre

The paintings of Patricia Fabre are living presences. Each work is immediate, quite often representing loved ones and close family. They are portrayed in a way that conceals the identity, which reveals a new personality, subliminated beyond appearance.

Fabre started painting in 1990 working on porcelain. After four years she moved on to embossed tinwork, and kept at that for another four years. Finally, in 1998, she started to work in oils, studying with Francisco Ibanez. This tutelage lasted for one and one half years until it was halted by his tragic death. She emphasizes she took up a brush and found the love of paint. For the next five years she studied watercolors with Couoh Angeles. Of this time she says, “Angeles taught me to be free, not to be afraid and to experience.”

In 2004, Fabre organized a creativity workshop taught by Carmina Williams, which included the photographers Gloria Pavon and Susan River. During this period Fabre produced what she considers her first mature works.

Nine years later galería O.M.O. is proud to present Patricia Fabre’s first show here in San Miguel. The gallery will unveil her latest works at a cocktail reception on September 6 from 5-8pm.

Raúl Campos

Raúl Campos, one of the quickly rising stars in the new generation of Mexican artists, was born in Queretaro in 1992. He has in the past year relocated to San Miguel de Allende.

From a very early age Campos showed a talent for drawing. Being that both his paternal grandmother and his mother were involved in the arts, he was encouraged in this direction. His mother says as a young child he preferred to draw a picture of what he wanted rather than make a verbal request.

As Campos reached school age he started taking art classes and soon recognized his fascination for the human form. One of the most decisive steps he took was aligning himself with a new teacher, Roman Miranda, in 2010. Sr. Miranda teaches in a rather controversial way with classes extending into five-hour sessions. Raul Campos persevered with the classes right up until this year. With the guidance and friendship of his teacher, he was able to present his first exhibition “Insanis” in 2012.

Galería O.M.O. is proud to be Campos’ representative here in San Miguel, and takes great pleasure in presenting his latest collection entitled “Remedios.” There will be a meet-the-artist reception on September 6 from 5-8pm.

Linda Laino

For over 30 years Linda Laino has been making art in one form or another. Originally from Philadelphia, Virginia was home for most of her adult life, but with frequent jaunts to Mexico. Having moved to San Miguel in July of 2012, she continues to explore her artistic vision with the help of this exciting new landscape.

Over the past 25 years, Laino has been included in a number of group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States. Her works are in numerous private and public collections, one of which is The American Craft Museum in New York.

Her latest collection, “Equations,” executed in watercolor and pencil, is now available exclusively through Small Works at Fábrica la Aurora.
