Puerto Vallarta - The award-winning restaurant El Arrayán will once again host a special art exhibit March 15 through April 10, 2006 with a festive cocktail reception from 6 pm to 7:30 pm on the opening night.
|El Arrayán restaurant will be presenting the works of The Peyote People from March 15th-April 10th.|
This exhibit follows the successful Colectivo La Malagua display scheduled to close March 13. "We want our patrons to experience the very best in traditional Mexican food and Mexican art," exclaims Carmen E. Porras, owner of El Arrayán. "These art exhibits featuring the brightest talent from around the bay have been popular, our customers have been asking for more."
Deep in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Western Mexico live the Huichol Indians. The Huichol create brilliantly colored bowels, paintings and carvings using yarn and glass beads. One of the most distinctive Huichol artists today is Neikame (José Carrillo Morales.) His surreal depictions of his culture's customs and traditions have truly set his art apart from the rest. His work combines not only yarn and beads; his water color paintings add a new dimension to his art. El Arrayán is thrilled to be featuring some of his most inspired works.
Hosting the evening is El Arrayán, the award-winning restaurant that recently won three "Best of PV" awards including "Best Mexican." The public is invited to join in this special evening for free, though if patrons want to enjoy the unique flavors of El Arrayán for dinner, reservations are required and can be made by calling 222-7195.
El Arrayán is located in El Centro on the corner of Allende and Miramar, an easy stroll from the Malecón. Don't miss this memorable kick-off event Wednesday, March 15 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm at El Arrayán, where you'll experience unique Huichol art seldom seen outside of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
