Day of The Dead Art Shows

Hello Citizens of The Blogosphere,

It’s going to be another busy week for Annotated Audrey Art. In addition to our usual markets, we are participating in Tenwest Fuse, a showcase of music and makers on Saturday (10/21) night. Also, opening on Saturday (10/21) night are two Day of the Dead themed art shows that I’ve created paintings for. Barrio Bones IV at Art House Centro and Phantoms at Pop-Cycle Shop. In this post, I will share the artwork that I’ve created for these shows, as well as a bit of info about the shows themselves.

The Barrio Bones IV group art show at Art House Centro tells the story of Dia de los Muertos, as interpreted by 30 local artists. I created three pieces for this art show. Two are highly textured and colorful acrylic paintings and one is a watercolor homage to a famous painter. (Can you guess who?)

Candy Skull Frida

“Candy Skull Frida,” is a tribute to one of my personal role models and favorite painters, Frida Kahlo. Her bold personality, compelling story and unique fashion sense make her a recurring inspiration for my art.

Candy Skull Girl

“Candy Skull Girl,” combines themes from both Halloween and Day of The Dead.

Unfortunately, since I will be at Fuse: Music and Makers Showcase on Saturday night, I won’t be attending the opening reception for these shows. However, I’ll definitely be stopping by these cool local shops to take tons of photos during the exhibition period to share with those of you who don’t live in Tucson. 🙂

If you want to keep up with any local shows that I’m doing, you can check out my events calendar (here) or sign up for my mailing list (here).

That’s all for now.

Have a marvelous day!
