May 20, 2013

Muertos in May is now showing through June 29th. Stop by during our normal tasting hours to see the show. (no purchase necessary) 

Friday May 10th kicks off our annual art show called Muertos in May, presented by El Rey Artwork. The show includes work by locals Rob and Tammy Yancey, Abraxus Aguilar, Carlos and Lynn Frésquez, Jerry Vigil and Tony Vecchio, along with Carolyn Flores from New Mexico and Zarco Guerrero of Arizona. The show will be up through May 31st.

From Westword: "Yes, Día de los Muertos takes place in early November, but celebrating the holiday in the spring -- the season of rebirth -- made perfect sense to the group of artists putting together Muertos in May, an art extravaganza at the Bonacquisti Wine Company."

“The skulls are symbolic; they remind us that there’s life hereafter,” says Rob Yancey, an artist and one of the show's organizers, of the calaveras that are integral to any Día celebration worth its salt. “What people don’t realize is how therapeutic it is. It gives you a specific time to grieve for your family and loved ones every year.”
