Catrinas on Parade and Escúchame

Firehouse Art Center

In October, the Firehouse will be unveiling over 20 new paintings created by local Longmont artists in their Main Gallery.  Each year, the Firehouse Art Center invites local artists to create their representation of La Calavera Catrina. La Calavera Catrina is a zinc etching by the Mexican printmaker José Guadalupe Posada. Originally a commentary on the Mexican natives who, Posada felt, were aspiring to adopt European aristocratic traditions. She has become an icon of the Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead. The Catrina exhibit will open on October 8th, during the Dia de los Muertos Festival, and will be on view until November 6, 2022.  There will be select Catrinas hanging at the Longmont Public Library as well. 

The South Gallery’s “Escúchame” explores complex issues like healing, feminism and identity. Featuring Jamie Chihuan and Adriana Paolo Palacios Luna, the exhibition includes painting, printmaking and fiber arts, the works connected by common threads of shared life experiences, and complex narratives layered by cross cultural experiences, memories, environmental commentary, spiritualism and symbolism. The exhibition’s goal is to highlight the message and passion of these two Latinx artists, Jamie Chihuan and Adrian Paolo Palacios Luna.
