Mexico Celebrates Holidays with Art
By Ninfa Cuervo
In Mexico, we love to celebrate Independence Day with a lot of passion. We love to see people from all over Mexico and the world coming together in front of the Parroquia and celebrating with songs, shouts, and fireworks.
“México to Mónaco”
By Andrew Osta
Sat, Sep 13, 6-8pm
Half a block from Hernández Macías
As we walk through the streets of our beautiful town at this time, we can see so many events happening, and among them is an amazing exhibition by a young artist of international importance.
Andrew Osta is a talented, multi-disciplined artist dedicated to creativity for over 10 years. His new work is inspired by everyday life, by his experiences in Mexico, by the special light of San Miguel de Allende, and the vibrant colors of our country, as well as by his recent visits to Cote d’Azur, Tuscany, Spain, and Monaco.
After three months in Europe, Osta returns to San Miguel influenced by the European tradition, the European landscape, and the distinct light and color of the the places he visited. In Tuscany, he lived inside a 1,000-year-old castle, which Dante once stayed in. The paintings he brings back are reminiscent of these spaces, and are both realistic and magical.
After leaving some of his new work in the galleries of Monaco, and familiarizing himself with the art scene in this part of Europe, Andrew Osta returns to San Miguel with a new appreciation for our town’s artistic diversity and originality. When I spoke to him about his impressions, he commented that the art scene in Europe is already past its peak, while Mexico is in position to reach new artistic heights.
“México to Mónaco” is an exhibition that is not to be missed, set in Bordello Gallery on Órganos 19, half a block from Hernández Macías. The opening will be on Saturday September 13, from 6-8pm.
