Galería Contempo Announces Miriam Pérez Opening

Published Nov 20, 2012, 4:28pm - (Updated Nov 21, 2012, 1:53pm)


Galería Contempo begins their seasonal artist openings with an exhibition of works in bronze, fused glass and ceramic by acclaimed Mexican artist, Miriam Pérez. A cocktail reception will take place on Friday, November 23 from 6 - 10 pm. The artist will be present during the evening, as she visits Puerto Vallarta for the first time.

Originally from Yucatán, Pérez grew up loving the outdoors and the sea. And rather than becoming an artist, she firmly states that she was born one.  “As soon as I could hold a crayon in my hand I started drawing,” admitting to frequently getting into trouble at school “because I´d always be sketching in my notebooks and simply couldn’t stop.”

Passionate about all things artistic, she went on to design sets and lighting for theater and television and to choreograph modern dance, a manifestation of her fascination with the human body. And thanks to the artist’s numerous monumental public works in both Mexico and the United States, multitudes have been enchanted by her ebullient interpretations of the human form.  Attendees and participants at Jalisco´s recent Pan American Games, for example, were inspired by one of her monumental pieces just outside of the new gymnastics stadium.

Galería Contempo is located on Basilio Badillo 252, in Colonia Emiliano Zapata. For more information about Galería Contempo, please click here.
