Save the date! My solo show "Textiles and Lunatics: Constructing Dreams" at the Merge Gallery in Artists and Makers Studios 2, opens this Friday December 1rst from 6-9pm.

What is special to you? It could be something, someone, a concept, dogma, romance. Desde la vida cotidiana...hasta algo espectacular. Like our grandparents' kitsch, old fashioned sofas or like religious scapulars... contained in clear plastic vinyl or singled out in niches, encased, preserved in time. In this show, I explore what is sacred, those dreams that are never abandoned. Those eternally longed for but never reached, those that were completely lost, others that were found. The dreamers, (creative types) are usually considered mad, idealistic, lunatics...who wonder, persevere, do not abandon their beliefs.  "De poetas y locos...todos tenemos un poco".

Join me this Friday, December 1, from 6-9 pm at the opening reception of my solo show "Textiles and Lunatics: Constructing Dreams". There are lots of new, experimental fiber artworks, fun illustrations and an interesting combination of media on this show! It runs through December 21 at the Merge Gallery in A & M 2 (12276 Wilkins Ave. Rockville, MD 20852). Gallery hours are Tues-Sat 10 am- 4pm.

Best selling author KEITH DONOHUE  wrote a beautiful short story for Wheaton Arts Parade titled "PISCES". It was based on my painting " De Alla Pa' Ca". ( I'm humbled, excited and agradecida at the same time!)

 Here's the link to his blog, the story was added on September 27, 2017:

 Wheaton Arts Parade 2017 was a success!  I was part of a team 6 artists and designers, winners of a WAP grant and we built a beautiful float "Celebrating Frida Kahlo". We marched to celebrate  art and diverse cultures in the Wheaton area with our float. Friends, family and more artists joined us dressed as different Fridas and Calaveras. There were also other awesome floats built by local artists and students. A festival followed, with 3 stages, music performances, puppets, films, poetry readings, tents with children's crafts, art for sale, and food vendors...all by LOCAL talent and businesses. I'm looking forward to participating next year!!.
