Dia de los Muertos Group Show 2010

"With Help & Consulation from the Angels of the Deep"
Mixed Media, Stonehedge Paper, 9" x 7"x 3"

This ancient holiday began as a day of thanks for the harvest. Over time, it became a time to remember the ancestors and beloved ones who have died. Once one knows death intimately, death is no longer wrapped in a cloak of mystery or a reason to fear the darkness.  Many customs and traditions have been added over the years, but for the most part, this ancient holiday is as it always was -- a time of remembrance and love.

The show features artists creating artwork to commemorate their ancestors and departed loved ones. The art ranges from whimsical, political, to painfully personal.  Reclaiming this Mexican American tradition, these artists translate it into their own personal interpretation.
