Sorry it's been a while. Have been a bit busy with the family, renovating a bedroom in the house into an office, helping out with the family business and develpoing some investments. Also, the job hunt is keeping me at bay. I also got to attend La Ley concert last, last Saturday and a free Aleks Syntek concert in Matamoros this past Thursday. They both were AWESOME AWESOME shows. Ely Guerra and Control Machete also came to McAllen with Cafe Tacuba this past Saturday but I disappointingly missed that show. The thought of it makes me want to hit my head on the wall but I was busy putting a wood floor into the new office and it was butt-kicking work. If you have ever tried to put in illaminated wood floor, then you must know what I am talking about. The Kumbia Kings were also in town this Saturday.
So what I know about art events:
The Cuatro del Valle show is still up at the Narciso Martinez Center in San Benito. The opening reception was good and I was able to get my books signed by all four artists. Go check it out because the pieces are very well composed and each reflects a personal style that contributes and derives from the Chicano experience in the Rio Grande Valley. Xavier Garza's painting style struck me most because it reminded me of another artist, Verdirosi, whose exhibtion I went to in Orvieto, Italy. Their scenes are narrative and figuratively stylized like a cartoon, which casts a lighter tone to their paintings. It would have been awesome if they could also have sold some prints at the show.
I also briefly read about an art exhibition at Imagenes Studio at Paseo Plaza which is located on FM801 past Bennigans.
The musical "Hair!" will be playing at the Camille Lightner Playhouse. Their website is located on the links list so check it out for more info.
Okay, gotta go. Sorry I am a bit dried up in info and out of loop. I will try to juice it up more next posting. TTFN!
