Dia de los Muertos

 Pancho con Hombre Pajaro

Pancho con Hombre Pajaro, 2012

Dear Friends,

Make plans to visit this year's "Dia de los Muertos" exhibition
at the National Museum of Mexican Art this year. A group of students
from my school created and ofrenda dedicated to singers
who died in the last few years but specially to Selana Quintanilla.

I created a large print (above; click to enlarge on separate page)
in homage to my friend Francisco Mendoza who passed on this year.
Francisco was an artist and art teacher in a local elementary public school.
He loved and identified with Mesoamerican cultures
and he felt a particular affinity for Maya aesthetics considering himself
having the classic Maya profile. So I did this print with him standing
and conversing with a Bird-Man, from the Toltec-Maya style in Cacaxtla.
This print will also be on exhibition at the NMMA.

I hope to see you during the Opening Reception:

Friday, September 14, from 6-8:30 pm

 Consejo Gráfico de México

  The Serie Project is a non-profit Latino arts organization that produces, promotes, and exhibits the work of Latino artists and others, and makes the production and sale of prints affordable to both artist and patron. Each year, 15 to 18 artists are invited, through a referral and juror system, to participate in the Serie Project. They come to Coronado Studio, one of only three Latino-based print studios in the United States, to create an original work, collaborate with a master printer, learn how to create a serigraph print, and produce an edition of 50 prints.

  A collaborative workshop format is the setting used to foster diverse artists's development and creativity through exposure to the serigraph technique. Each participating artist creates a limited edition serigraph print and The Serie Project, in turn, is able to make the fine art available to the public through these affordable, signed and numbered prints. The prints are also exhibited throughout the year at various museums and galleries in and outside of Texas. All of this is accomplished at no cost to the artist.

  Serigraph printmaking is a very specialized printing medium. Only a handful of fine art print shops exist in the United States. Depending on the number of artists, anywhere between 750 and 900 prints are produced annually through the Serie Project. The focus is on the work of Latina/o artists, but is not exclusively so. The artist keeps one half of the prints s/he produces, and the Serie Project keeps the other. The work of all the artists is then shown at exhibits during the course of the year. In this way, they are made available to the public, both for viewing and for sale.
