El Paso/Juarez Events/Eventos 09/10-16

I have not received anything about Juarez events, so what I have is here and mainly at two galleries.

Wednesday 12

Adair Margo Gallery. She is having an opening tonight for three artists who live in various parts of Texas, but whose work has next to nothing to do with Texas as such.

Pamela Nelson’s show “Present Tense” is about color and abstractions based on such diverse elements as African fiber art , guatemalan weavings and the like. She will give a talk before the show opens called Color Equation and Other Works.
Brenda Kingery calls her show “Journey” and she paints themes based on her travels to Honduras, Mexico and Uganda where she teaches in the ‘Hands of Hope” project. She teaches women there various craft techniques and comes away with inspiration for her art.
She will give a talk about her work on Thursday at 12:00
Rosario Ponte’s “Rostros de Ninos” features her commissioned portraits of El Paso and Juarez children.
She will give a talk next Thursday at 12:00 in the gallery

Adair Margo Gallery 5:30-7:30
Pamela Nelson talk 5-5:30 Wednesday night
Brenda Kingery talk 12:00-1:00 Thursday
Rosario Ponte talk 12:00-1:00 Thursday the 19th


Friday 09/14

SPAG artist gallery talk. Many of the artists from the current show will give a free talk at the gallery from 7-9 pm. This is your chance to ask them what were they thinking?

Sunday 9/16

Mexican Independence Day/Dia del Independencia . This is the day despite what many El Paso Institutions seem to think. Vive Mexico.

Tourist Distraction, Carlos Rodriguez ambitious undertaking over on Texas Avenue is promising a huge musical and art event for that evening, but I would contact him to make sure.
