Chicago and La Llorona Art Gallery's opening Exhibition

We have been home in Chicago for two weeks now and I've enjoyed almost every minute of it.  Well, maybe not all of the unpacking, rearranging furniture, etc. but for the most part it's been great.  I find myself missing some of my life back in Mexico City but I know we will go back there for several months next year. I love being able to see my daughters and while I haven't seen Diana yet it is much easier for us to talk on the phone than it was to skype.  The dogs seem comfortable here although Citlali is still crazy and follows me around - not nearly as much as she does in Mexico though.

We are busy getting the house back into its former dual purposed gallery/home state.  Arturo has been working hard and we are excited to have the first show scheduled to open on Friday, October 25!  It will feature the exhibition "Endless Death" (Muerte sin fin), a selection of pen and ink drawings, some quirky or whimsical, some serious, even dramatic, that the artist Felipe Ehrenberg created over a thirty six year time span. Ehrenberg lived many years in Brazil as the cultural ambassador of Mexico.  Besides being an artist, he is a writer, activist, editor, diplomat, actor, politician and the list goes on.   Here is the link to the press release and these are a few examples of his work:

 If you are in the Chicago area on October 25th we would love to see you!  The opening starts at 6 p.m. and goes until midnight.  Updates will be posted on the Gallery's Facebook page.  Hope to see you there!
