Celebrating the Beauty of Life
Submitted By Jacqueline Cooper
Sun Gallery is hosting "Celebrando la Hermosura de la Vida" from October 10 - November 10. This exhibition will feature works around the theme, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), that captures the beauty, vibrancy, and celebration in memory of those who have passed on. Dia de los Muertos originates from Mexico but is celebrated in many other parts of the world using skeletons, flowers, and crosses. Altars are a part of this celebration and Sun Gallery has installed altars that commemorate lost family members as a part of the exhibition.
Artists who have contributed to the exhibition include: Tino Banuelos, Phillip Long, Patra Nesseth-Steffes (altar), Nina Starr, Jane Nielson (altar), Elizabeth Garcia, Beatriz Castillo, Felippe Vasquez and artists of the East Bay Arts Alliance, Jacqueline Cooper, Christine Bender, BJ Jesse, Carrie King and students of Mount Eden High School, Christine Bender and Betty Ferguson.
A reception is planned for Saturday, November 3 with food, music, and dance performances by a local tango duo and Grupo Folklorico Tlapalli. Food and beverages will be available for a small donation at the door. We look forward to seeing you here.
