Los Nopales de Mi Abue (My Grandma’s Cactus)

Gouache on paper, 2017, 16"w x 12"h

Every year in December, I take my parents back to their hometown Benito Juarez, “El Tulillo,” in Zacatecas, México. Here, the sky dominates the land, the mountains scrape the sky and the land can be seen for miles on end. It’s hot, dry desert where it hardly rains, every bug or plant has thorns and can be poisonous and every animal is wild who fears no man. This last December, I decided to adventure out aiming to capture the landscape on paper. Each image is personal to me with a story of its own.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
