Dear Friends and Patrons of the Peter Gray Art Museum at CUC:

Please save the date of Thursday, November 18 for attending the exciting opening event of the new season for the Peter Gray Art Museum. We'll be hosting an exhibition of the works of 5 International artists from Guadalajara, plus new paintings by our own Meg Munro.

The festivities will be from 5-8 pm on the Museum grounds at Centro Universario de la Costa on the road to Ixtapa, north of the airport. Entrance is free of charge, so plan to bring your friends and family to enjoy not only the visiting artists, but the newest addition to the museum's sculpture garden - a work by Ramiz Barquet La Familia, kindly donated by his widow Nelly in memory of one of PV's most admired and loved artists.
