Local Artist Michael Pedziwiatr’s South of the Border Is Mesmerizing, Playful Art


By Guillermo Nube

A playful adventure into imagination. The stage is set for this theater of the mind in glass cubes sculpture.

South of the Border opens at 6pm, Saturday, September 21, continuing from 1–5pm on Sunday, September 22 at the Bordello Gallery of the iconic and beautiful La Casa de la Noche, Órganos 19.

As one circumvents these cubes in 360 degrees, each view presents a sensory experience unlike the next, the next, and the next.

This exhibit is the dream-state creation of renowned artist Michael Pedziwiatr, a longtime San Miguel de Allende resident. Playful characters from Pedziwiatr’s toys, found objects, and paintings speak to all who experience it, but most vibrantly to those who have come from afar to live in San Miguel.

In the artist’s dreams, the play was put to music, a next step perhaps in the continuing development of this original artistic theme. You may anticipate a continuing evolution over future months and years.

Pedziwiatr studied with the Art Students’ League in New York City when Jean Basquiat was painting his slogans on edifices. He has a master’s of fine art in sculpture from the University of Denver in Colorado. He also studied with Lawrence Argent, who created the majestic sculpture Venus for the city of San Francisco, which may be seen on the Internet.

In addition, the artist has taught art at multiple levels, including university, high school, adult education, and with very young children. He has exhibited from coast to coast, including a solo show at the famous Shidoni foundry and gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

This two-day pop-up event will enjoy the perfect venue and complementary background—the Fountain Terrace of the Bordello Galeria.

Immerse yourself in this adventure of the imagination. Light snacks and drinks will be served. Do not experience the remorse of hearing about it after the fact from friends who have been delightfully mesmerized by Pedziwiatr’s playful art.
