We’re *really* looking forward to the next edition of Punta Mita’s popular Gallery Nights series, as this one features local favorite M.8 Galeria, by Marco Alverez!

This Tuesday, March 20th at Kupuri Beach Club, M.8 GALERIA Punta de Mita will present a variety of works featuring techniques from abstract to figurative.

M.8 Galeria represents a collection of emerging and established Mexican artists, whose works have also been shown in museums and art galleries in Mexico, Europe, and the United States. The following will be featured at the March 20 Gallery Nights:

Marco Alvarez • Mexico City
Marco studied at the University of Mexico (UNAM) and graduated with a degree in Architecture in 1990. He was an instructor in graphic representation, rendering, and watercolors at the University of Mexico. From 1989 to 2005 he executed a parallel career in both architecture and painting. He has participated in multiple exhibits, both solo and collective, including art biennials as well as international contests. In May 2012, he was awarded the gold medal “XXXV Edizione de La Medusa Aurea” from the International Academy of Modern Art in Rome. His work is defined as abstract and it is distinguished by the mixed media technique emphasized by textures. He combines and contrasts the abstract subjects with the transparency and subtlety of watercolors.

Jorge Barrios • Tlaxiaco, Oaxaca
Jorge Barrios studied design at the Metropolitan University, then entered the National School of Painting, Sculpture, and Engraving, La Esmeralda. (1983-1989). From 1980 to the present, he has participated in numerous collective exhibitions in different galleries within Mexico and outside the country. Jorge has been distinguished with several honorable mentions and prizes. He has recently exhibited in Paris, France with great success. Barrios’ work is distinguished by the use of textures composed of sand and pigments, his engravings are also greatly admired. The themes have the hallmark of contemporary Oaxacan painting and tell stories of animal husbandry linked to a paraphernalia of anthropomorphic beings, exploring joy and intrigue with pure compositions that project a human/animal world.

Carlos Gutierrez Angulo • Huixquilucan, Estado de Mexico
Carlos trained as an artist at the National School of Plastic Arts of the UNAM and at the National School of Plastic Arts “La Esmeralda” as well as the Postgraduate studies at the Academy of San Carlos. He is a member of the National System of Art Creators of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts. Among his outstanding achievements include: the Acquisition Prize in the National Biennial of Painting – 1992, the Acquisition Prize of the XII Biennial Rufino Tamayo 2004, and several honorable mentions in various participations in art contests. Carlos’ work is characterized by eloquent images that combine the style and stroke found in the forms of primitive drawings which questions memory, and in the same way, sees the world with irony. His technique utilizes a mixture of coal and ashes with oil with which he marries cave scenes with dream exercises of his own caves.
