What is the current show in the Temple Art Gallery?
We are currently hosting La Lotería: An Exploration of Mexico, by Teresa Villegas.
This work of 24 limited-edition prints is drawn from the series La Lotería and is based on the popular Mexican game of chance. There are 54 total cards in a Lotería deck, and each card shows an image with a word describing that image.
“I wanted to paint images, impressions, and ideologies that would tell of my experiences of the Mexican culture in a fun and objective way. Though I have been traveling and living in Mexico off and on for over 20 years, this installation was conceived while I was living in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, MX. in 1995. Many images within this installation depict icons of humor, irony, and faith found throughout Mexico, which are concepts that are often employed to deal with the harsh realities of life.”
Prints from the entire series are available on the artist’s Etsy site, with a portion of sales being donated back to support Arizona Theatre Company. Use coupon code AZTHEATERSUPPORTER for 40% off your purchase and free shipping!
