Feria Artes Ajijic

 

mexican-artOn Saturday and Sunday February 13 and 14 the first major professional Art Show for the visual arts will take place in Ajijic at the new CENTRO LAGUNA mall, on the Libramiento and in front of Walmart. This important event in our community life is the first collaborative group show organized by the members of www.lagunaartesplasticas.com, Grupo de Artistas Plasticas de Jalisco. The artists are both from Lakeside and from Jalisco and this first single location show will in the future replace the previously organized Art Walks which did not allow other very gifted artists from out of town to participate.

Fifty-two artists will exhibit sculptures, paintings, photography, drawings, engravings, glass art and collages, etc. in a professionally organized setting in the very attractive and modern inner courtyards of the new mall. Additional artistic side shows such as food art, ice sculpting and dance performances will take place simultaneously and we hope that the new mayor of Chapala, Jesus Cabral, will attend the opening ceremony on Saturday 13 at 11:00pm to cut the ribbon. All visitors will receive a copy of the attractive 20-page show catalogue.

One of the reasons for such an important event, is our hope that it will grow from 52 artists this year, to include in the future the hundreds of extremely gifted visual artists who live in Jalisco with little or no possibilities to exhibit or sell their work. Such a well-organized and well-advertised Feria of inter-regional importance, which will attract possibly thousands of visitors to Ajijic, will contribute to the growing reputation of Ajijic as an artist village and to the development of local tourism and hence of the local economy.

Together, all of us, residents and art lovers, can improve the quality of our cultural scene by giving our support to this great event.

Hours are: Saturday February 13 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm

Sunday February 14 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
