"Muerto en vi da\," (Walking Dead) is the title of our 7th Annual Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead) exhibit. A few people have asked me\, why "muerto en vida?" Well\, as many of us have been struggling and have been "spiritless " as of late\, I thought the title to be fitting for this year's exhibit. < em>But alas\, it is also a time for celebration - a celebration of life and a time to be thankful\, positive\, grateful and appreciative of what we DO have.

\ n
Day of the Dead is commonly known as a Mexican holiday. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remembe r friends and family members who have died. Altars\, marigolds\, offerings\ , skulls\, masks\, humor and tears all encompass this years old tradition.< /div>\n


Similar obse rvances\, festivals\, and parades occur elsewhere in many Latin American co untries\, as well as Europe\, and like celebrations appear in many Asian an d African cultures.

\n

The exhi bit features more than 40 artists who have created original works just for the show: oils on canvas\, acrylics on canvas and wood\, dolls\, assemblage \, photography\, wood cuts\, sculpture and tons of mixed media works!

Come out and support local artists and small business.
