MERIDA — The exhibition “Artists without frontiers”, composed of paintings of artists who were part of the Mexican delegation at the World Art Games in Croatia, opened on Monday October 2 at Galerías Mall in Mérida.
Malena Peón, co-president of the Mexican delegation that attended the World Art Games held in Croatia this September, stressed that for several years she has worked to internationalize the national art and therefore this is why she is happy with the achievements of the event.
She thanked the artists participating in the World Art Games. They worked as a team and even won the gastronomic prize by cooking mole and guacamole, one of the activities carried out at the international meeting.
Diana Carvajal Vázquez, general manager of Galerías Mérida, indicated that they not only care about the commercial aspect but also want to generate good experiences for their visitors; for that reason they realize events in which the talent of the artists is shown.
She also recognized the work of Malena Peón as an artist and promoter, thanking her for being part of the activities of the venue.
Felipe Ahumada Vasconcelos, director of Culture of the City Council, emphasized the importance of the participation of the private initiative in the diffusion and promotion of art, something that contemplates the Agenda 21, for which he congratulated Galerías Mérida.
The artists participating in the exhibition are: Luis Germán García, Deisy Sánchez, Alicia Garza Ramos, Malena Peón, Esdras Castillo, Montserrat Maciel, Mariana Medina, Genoveva Kelleher, Zulema Toledo and Genoveva Faller.
The Yucatecans Malena Peón and Esdras Castillo participated in the World Art Games in Croatia. Castillo obtained gold medals for his artwork in the category of photography with two pieces: one from the Yabucú estate and another of the Chelem crane, printed with the light painting technique.
This last work, entitled “The ark”, is part of the exhibition in the Mall, because “Yabucú, henequen and past” was donated to the municipality of Slavonski Brod in Croatia.
