Art Show by Baja Nueva

Art Show by Baja Nueva

Alphonso Arambula’s newest collection of metal sculptures was a big hit at the latest art show hosted by Baja Nueva gallery and studio in San Felipe on March 7. Baja Nueva has become known as the premier place in San Felipe to view and purchase the works of local and internationally known artists with their monthly art shows at the Plazita.

Arambula, well known for his stone, wire, and wooden geckos has expanded his creations to include art showing contemporary women created in this very same media. Three of his newest pieces, Bad Hair Day, Shell Hat and Turquoise Lady, are destined to become the leading examples of a genre of composite art created from recycled and natural materials.

The artist has become famous for this style and in the past his works have been mostly for public display of very large pieces, unattainable to the average collector. He has recently been chosen as the Mexican representative at the latest international show in Virginia where one of his pieces will be on display. It is hoped that with his latest creations, more of his art will be placed in the hands of private collectors.

Baja Nueva will have its next art show on Saturday, April 16, at the Plazita featuring well-known local artist Luis Cogly. His newest creations of vibrant, action-filled paintings of horses that are ready to jump off of his canvases are a must see event.

Stop by and enjoy some wine, Hors D’oeuvres and art.
Show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., 614 Mar de Cortez, San Felipe.
