Every Picture Tells a Story
Looks like the folks at Soho Galleries are doing it again. Fresh from an overseas buying trip, owners Adele Aguirre and Nicholas Lavroff are gearing up for their next show, An Eclectic Collection, opening Friday, October 28 at 7pm, and running through February 2012. On display will be art from the U.S. and Cuba, as well as work by local Yucatecan artists.
“The work is so varied in scope and theme that it can only be described as eclectic,” said Adele Aguirre. “However,” she added, “many of the pieces seem to be part of a narrative or story, stimulating the viewers’ imagination as well as their visual sense.”
The work includes sculptures, watercolors, oils and acrylics, digital photography, and “tutupiches,” sculptures made out of paper streamers. If you’ve never seen tutupiches, made by local artist Gerardo Avilés, it’s worth a visit to Soho just for that alone. Artists also include world famous Yovani Caise, emerging artists Joan Tamayo and Carlos Becerra, José Tomás from the US, and local favorites Jorge Espinosa Torre and Hector Zubieta.
In keeping with the eclectic theme, Soho will host guest chef Alfred Rordame from Macan ché B&B in Izamal, as he prepares vegan delights for guests at the opening. “Vegan cuisine is no longer just carrot sticks and celery,” said Aguirre, “but is an art form in itself. Preparing delicious food without dairy, oil, or meat of any kind is a challenge, and Alfred is a master chef.”
