San Pancho, Nayarit — For the past five years, Galeria Corazon has offered an extensive collection of the finest folk art from among the best living artist in Mexico. Now, gallery owners Judi and John Levens have teamed up with Judith Anderson's Galeria Serendipity to share a new space at the corner of Avenida Tercer Mundo (Main Street, San Pancho) and Calle Cuba, one block from the beach.
|The new gallery will feature the finest Mexican folk art, including Huichol art.|
The Galeria will be opening in mid-December. A formal opening and reception will take place at 6 pm on December 20.
Serendipity will feature the finest Huichol art collected by Judith Anderson and her partner, Jesse Hendry. The offerings of the two galleries will make for an exciting visual impact: a blending of the unique and colorful Huichol beadwork and the rich traditions of the finest Mexican pottery.
Corazon will concentrate on a few great artists from Jalisco and Michoacan, including Luis Cortez, Jose Alvarez, Salvatore Vasquez, Elena Filipe and Bernadina Rivera, supplemented with other up-and-coming artists from the same areas.
The focus is on collecting or commissioning the very best of the traditional designers, executed in the highest quality and introducing some newer artists such as Manuel Morales, whose work takes traditional themes and incorporates them in new ways. The galerias will be open from Tuesday through Sunday, from 11 am to 6 pm.
The Levens also are partners in San Pancho's Casa Obelisco, recently rated by Forbes Magazine as one of the most romantic B&B's in the world.
