Solo Art Show in Morelia, Mexico
In a March newsletter, I wrote about my "Corona" series which I painted at the beginning of the first Covid lockdown, March 2020. I didn’t mention that I had Covid as I was writing that letter. It felt ironic to be preparing for an artshow based on Covid while I had it. But that's what happened. Now I'm recovered and I don't think I passed it on. The Corona exhibition is hanging at Casa Romero, a small, unique art gallery and gift shop at #48 Callejon del Romance a beautiful pedestrian walkway in the historic center of Morelia. The gallery is open Tues-Sunday 12-8:00. The photo above is the entrance to the gallery. Below are some of the show pieces shown to scale in rooms made with the #artroomsapp. The individual pieces in this series measure 37x27 in. (94x69cm).
New friends, old friends, and friends-of-friends came to the show’s opening on Saturday. They filled the space, hung out, sipped mezcal, looked at the art and said nice things. Perfect! My favorite remark was in Spanish. Roughly translated it was: “Cyndie, you took something terrible — Covid — and made something beautiful with it. That shows what art can do.” Isn’t that the best? Meanwhile, I’m to lead my book group this month with Elizabeth Strout’s “Lucy By the Sea”. Talk about turning Covid into something beautiful! I believe this book will have a place in history as one of the best novels about the pandemic. But enough about the Covid! Thanks for reading.
