Last month I was invited to participate in the ¡Lotería, Lotería! exhibition curated by the Bath House Cultural Center. 54 artists each created their own interpretation of an image from the Lotería Mexican game of chance which resembles a form of bingo. My contribution, “La Muerte,” will be showcased as a 16″ x 20″ signed Somerset Velvet Giclee print. Along with the exhibition will be sets of cards utilizing the show’s artwork available for sale. The opening reception is Saturday, April 30th, 7-9 PM. (Learn more about the show at the official site for the Bath House Cultural Center.)
