Galleria Dante is pleased to announce the three artists that will be showcased this coming Friday, February 22—cocktails from 6 - 10 pm, as part of the Basilio Badillo Southside Shuffle: Guillermo Gómez, Kathleen Carrillo and Andrew Marcus.
Guillermo Gómez was born in Guadalajara in 1959. From an early age his admiration for nature trapped his attention, and with the interest of assimilating that which he learned, he began to draw. His participation in collective shows, local art festivals as well as single shows have won him prizes and recognition and the commission of monuments in his country as well as others. His monumental sculptures adorn such cities as: Guadalajara, Sayula, Yahualica y Concepcion de Buenas Aires in the state of Jalisco. Elsewhere, his sculptures are installed in La Paz, Villahermosa and Peru. His bust of Franklin D. Roosevelt, adorned the oval office when President Bill Clinton was in office.
Kathleen Carrillo, along with her husband , sculptor and writer, Andrew Marcus, reside in the Jungles just outside of Puerto Vallarta, along the Rio Cuale River at the base of the Sierra Madres, in Mexico. They also reside part of the year in Sarasota, Florida where she produces her many giclee editions. She has been painting for over twenty years, and has national and international acclaim. Her works are found in public and private collections throughout the world and she has won awards too numerous to mention.
Andrew Marcus has been working with wood for many years. He has taken his skills as a furniture maker and employed them in developing a unique form of constructed sculpture, which is then painted by his wife, artist Kathleen Carrillo.
