Local photographer Jill Flyer and painter/sculptor Navarro Tadeo are sharing the spotlight for two weeks in a special dual show that opened on Friday, February 13 in Galeria Sol Mexico at Colón 13 in Ajijic.
While Lakesiders are well acquainted with Flyer’s Mexican-themed photography, she has also received acclaim in U.S. exhibits, competitions and magazines. This show features a number of new works in black and white as well as color, including some gicle prints on canvas. During this show she has selected work to offer at discounted prices.
Tadeo’s exciting work has been described as being created with a pre-Columbian essence that is transformed with contemporary elements. He brings symbolism-filled vision with unique sculpture and paintings full of style and color. His 40-year career has been replete with acclaim and honors. He was singled out by a presidential committee as one of Mexico’s most promising artists. He latest tribute came in 2014 when he represented Mexico in Paris.
