      We are starting our final month at the current idiomART location with a real treat.

      A Week of Art with wooden sculpture artist and painter Juan Garcia and watercolor painter Margot Manosalvas from San Antonio de Ibarra, which is an area of the country reknowned for its art and especially its wood carving.

      Juan learned the craft of wood carving as a young boy and, through the years, has transformed his craft into a remarkable art form. He has also taken his inspiration and translated it to canvas with paintings that are inspired by the Andean Pachamama.

      Margot finds inspiration in the nature around her and paints beautiful watercolors of what she sees and feels.

      We start the week of art with the art opening of their joint exhibition entitled “Pachamama”
      Thursday, May 5 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm

      On Friday, Margot will give a live watercolor painting demonstration. This is a great opportuntity to meet the artist and watch her creative process.
      Friday, May 6 from 11:00 – 12:00 pm

      Finally, Juan will share some of the history of the generations old practice of wood carving in his pueblo. He will also share his personal story and finish the Saturday Salon with a carving demonstration.
      Saturday, May 7 at 10:30 am; cost is $10
