This is a gorgeous show! – In this lush exhibit, artist Gilat Ben-Dor combines richly detailed figures and ornament, forming an interplay of fantasy and elegance reminiscent of a holiday dreamland in faraway lands. The focus is on ethereal festivity geared to all. This open celebration of joyous pageantry allows for a wide range of interpretations by the supporting artists. An invited group of artists accompanies this featured exhibit.
Through November 30 only, The Millet House hosts Featured Artist Sai’la Gu’oi (Abel Ochoa, Yaqui/Yoeme with an exhibit of great beauty that showcases cultural and political issues. Open hours in November include Mondays and Wednesdays 10-2 pm, and Sunday evenings 6-9 pm, and by appointment.
(You can also visit the gallery during our volunteer hours on Tuesday mornings, Sunday afternoons and Saturdays: but please call, text or email first.)
The show will continue through October 31 for those who missed it, but the Closing Reception is Friday, October 25. It will be fun: the Badass ladies know how to have fun!
“Art + Life”: a stellar set of spoken word and song performances by TaLisa, Therosia and Angeles Peña that gave the audience chills. If you missed it – maybe we can do it again sometime. It would be well worth your time. Below: applause for TaLisa as she tells a story based on her journey as an emerging artist in Arizona.
“Badass Latina Women”, with Artist Vanessa Ortiz Zapata as featured artist, is up until October 31 at The Millet House.
