A note to mention that tonight (Thursday) at the Centro Artistico y Cultural Buena Vista in el Paso, Gabriel S. Gaytan is opening a show called Postcards from Aztlan Chicano/Chicana Paradise. The opening is from 6-8 pm and the show runs until July 28. The gallery is located at 3474 Doniphan drive (next to Rosa’s Cantina). I ‘t been over there, but looking at their website, it looks like they have a number of worthwhile ongoing art programs for the community.
Friday night, at the Centro Cultural Paso del Norte in Juarez Cecilia Briones (la Catrina) has an opening at 7:30 pm for her new show Infiernos Postmodernos. I’m really intereted in this show because I’ve watched this artist over the years as she has continued to hone and explore her personal vision and techniques.
