Gloria Elies Exhibition Continues at CUC

Published Jan 4, 2012, 4:39pm - (Updated Jan 31, 2012, 4:55pm)


The Peter Gray Art Museum on the campus of Centro Universitario de la Costa (CUC) re-opens Monday, January 9, after the holiday break. This includes an exhibition of unique sculptures by Puerto Vallarta resident, Gloria Elies.

Elies’ exhibition, featuring several bronze sculptures—about half from private collections—is installed in the gallery until January 21. The artist, now 88, has lived in Puerto Vallarta and Yelapa since the 60´s. Her inspiration is Mexican beach life—sensitive bronze portrait-busts of family and friends, figure studies of pets and horses and musicians and fish and fishermen. The original casting of “Los Mariachis,” featured here, was sponsored by her friend and patron, John Huston. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy Elies’ prolific oeuvre in a single exhibition.

The Peter Gray Art Museum’s next major exhibition, a weaving collection featuring fine woven textiles created by Zapotec artisans from the state of Oaxaca, will open with a reception on Thursday, January 26.
