While in Merida, we often enjoyed the many free cultural presentations hosted by the city at the foot of Paseo Montejo on most Saturday nights. So we were delighted to notice a gallery opening of Mexican art (the show was titled Masks) recently in the artsy neighborhood of Buffalo, known as Allentown. The event even included a band of very talented musicians. The event was sponsored by Rick Williams and wife (una Mexicana whose name I’ve forgotten), two of the several artists who own the gallery. They winter in Cuernavaca.
The band’s vocalist was very energetic and talented. All the musicians put on fine performances. And the art seemed to be selling well. (That’s Sra Williams, in black, next to the Magi in black, red, and green.)
