Folk Tales and Fables of South Texas
South Texas and Mexican culture are rich in amazing folklore, fantastic tales, mythology and urban legends. Examples of well-known stories and characters are La Llorona and Chupacabra, but there are many lesser-known stories like those of the ghosts of Heritage Park in Corpus Christi. You may even know a few great family stories passed down through the years, but not yet written down. FOLKTALES AND FABLES FROM SOUTH TEXAS is the theme of the 2014 Dia de los Muertos Art Exhibition. We invite you to participate in this South Texas art exhibition, featuring the excellent artwork of our South Texas artists. The exhibition will be viewed by more than 10,000 visitors during our annual Dia de los Muertos Festival.
Loteria - New Mural Unveiling Ceremony
K Space Contemporary is pleased to announce the unveiling of a mural entitled Loteria! The mural stems from a fine art exhibition at K Space Contemporary in November 2013 held in conjunction with the annual Dia de los Muertos Festival in which artists created original interpretations of cards from the traditional Mexican game, Loteria. Works of art in the exhibition were photographed, catalogued and submitted to a panel of jurors. The jurors selected 54 cards for inclusion in the mural. Each work will be enlarged to a 4 foot x 6 foot panel. Phase I of the mural, to be completed in October, includes twenty-four 4’ x 6 ‘ paintings installed in a grid. The overall size of the mural will be 32 ft. x 18 ft. The mural will be located on the south wall of the Kress Building (619 Chaparral). The unveiling will be held October 3, 2014 during ArtWalk. Artists selected for Phase I of the project are: Tony Armadillo, Mark Clark (Brownsville), Monica Garcia, Amorette Garza, Xavier Garza (San Antonio), Lisa Ramirez Harrison (Austin), Jenifer Hartsfield/Martin Molina, LaLisa Hernandez, Lynda Jones, Gerald Lopez, Brian McDermott, Joe Pena, David Pena, Noe Perez, Matt Peterson, Catrina Phillips, Carol Plumb (Brownsville), Arnold Rojas, Matthew Rosas, Ricardo Ruiz, Raychelle Schaudies (Austin), Amanda Shepherd, Paul Valadez (Edinburg), Mayra Viviana Zamora. All artists are from Corpus Christi unless otherwise noted. Several images of finished works are posted on the K Space Contemporary and Corpus Christi Dia de los Muertos Facebook pages. Images from the mural will also be used to create a K Space Contemporary version of the Loteria game. The game will serve as a way to promote our region’s art and artists, as well as serving as a city souvenir for special guests to Corpus Christi. Once additional funding is secured, the remaining 30 paintings will be completed in Phase II. Phase I of the Loteria! mural is funded by grants from the City of Corpus Christi through the Arts & Cultural Commission and National Endowment for the Arts’ Challenge America Fast-Track, and K Space Contemporary fundraisers - Dia de los Muertos Festival and WigOut.
