About 40 artists participated in My Studio-Mi Estudio, a community event formerly known as San Antonio Open Studios, from February 24–25 in one of the city’s best known neighborhoods.

This year, the art walk’s goal was to include more Mexican artists and more of the Spanish language. This was the reason for the name change. My Studio-Mi Estudio sponsored 10 new Mexican artists, pairing them with other artists to share their knowledge with them during the two-day event.

The galleries of David Dorantes, Mary Jane Miller, Bobbi Van, Ben Simbole, Christina M., Joan Elena Goldberg, Kathleen Cammarata, Bill Levitt, Peter Summer, and Peter Davis took part in the event.

Six artists—Bobbi Van, Christina del Valle, Carlos Arl, Graciel Pérez, Don Catrín (Francisco Nadie Vega), and Laura Reyes—painted four banners, which were hung at calle San Elías 13.

On February 22, prior to the opening, everyone involved celebrated at a cocktail party at the Hotel Real de Minas, a location spacious enough to accommodate the works of more than 50 participating artists. Varied artwork—from painting, sculptures, and mixed media to wood engravings, paper work, and photography and jewelry—were available for the public to examine and buy.

During the cocktails, artists shared their experiences, and soon the Mariachi Estampas de México arrived to create a musical atmosphere and get people dancing.
