Casa Europa Brings Together Mexican and American Women Artists for Exhibit

casa Europa By Ana Thiel

In an increasingly hostile world, Casa Europa has opened its galleries to a group of American and Mexican women artists who have come together to construct cultural bridges.

Each working in a different medium, they explore ideas of connectivity. They examine the spiritual, cultural, and emotional bridges that empower humanity and transcend civil disruption and political roadblocks. It is only by crossing bridges that we discover new worlds and enrich our lives. As a unit, these artists have put together an exhibition entitled, Bridges Not Walls.

Art knows no borders, and friendships scale walls. A group of women friends and artists have joined together to speak out against the current political atmosphere of divisiveness and hateful rhetoric. They bridge generations as well as cultures, embracing inclusivity and mutual respect. They believe that cultural commingling benefits countries and that art can nurture, broaden viewpoints, and unite.

Themes the artists will explore include: spiritual connectivity of death and rejuvenation, familial, emotional connectivity of migrant families, the riches of shared cultural connectivity, and the physical connectivity of women and their bodies.

Friendships are fluid and know no borders. All of the participating artists have stories to tell and emotional ties to both countries. However, San Miguel de Allende is the one common denominator, the one place where all their paths intersect, whether they live and work there or visit frequently.
