Now – 9/23: Ludicrous Tales: A Topsy Turvy Quartet

In the exhibition Ludicrous Tales: A Topsy Turvy Quartet four international artists residing in our region create an enchanted environment. The luscious paintings of Gloria Muriel pair beautifully with a succulent ceramic banquet by Beliz Iristay and Irene de Watteville and wondrous mosaic trees by Aida Valencia. Visitors are invited into a space dripping in decadence and more than a dash of whimsy as magical creatures and fantastic beasts break bread. Enter a magical environment of Nature nymphs painted in Talavera colors; wander among graceful trees with dazzling mosaic flowers; feast on a sensuous banquet of surreal delights in porcelain and clay.
