Exhibit Brings Artist Andrew Osta Back to Town

I’ve often wondered what it would be like to be an artist. In addition, when I can find a moment between teaching classes at a university and doing work around the house, I often draw little pictures. They look like the drawings of a five-year-old, but they bring me great pleasure.

This is why I respect artists: they embrace a passion that rarely results in economic return. They struggle from day to day, but lighten up our lives with their shapes and colors, exposing little bits of their souls in every picture. Artists follow an inner calling, but all the odds are against them.

I’ve been watching my friend Andrew Osta for almost five years now, watching him evolve as he goes from one style to another and back again. His artwork is impressively versatile and compelling, and I must admit that I like almost everything he does. Now that he has moved to Oaxaca, a certain void can be felt in the San Miguel de Allende art scene, at least for me, but I had a sneak peak at his new works, and it’s clear that the move has been good for him.

For those who haven’t heard of him, Osta first came to San Miguel in 2011, lured in by a Mexican girl he met in Canada (whom he later married). He worked and exhibited with the late Toller Cranston and Marion Perlet, as well as of other highly acclaimed artists. After his departure to Oaxaca in late 2017, his work remains on show in the Hecho en Mexico restaurant and in several galleries.

On Friday, March 2, Andrew Osta will be in town for the opening of his new exhibition at CI Banco, San Francisco 19, from 5 to 7pm. Only a block up from the Parroquia, this show is not to be missed, featuring new and exciting works by one of San Miguel’s most intriguing artists.
