San Jose del Cabo Art Walk: 2012-2013 Season Kicks Off

San Jose del Cabo Art Walk:  2012-2013 Season Kicks Off

by Yesica Pineda

2012 is the year when all awareness seems to be focused on our Mayan calendar. For those of you who wonder why, the Mayan calendar, which is the most exact calendar of all calendars known to humanity, starts a new cycle December 21st, 2012. Scholars and scientists, wizards and shamans are observing our cosmic alignments very closely in hope that all interpretations the present know about a new cycle in time is only but a doorway to a deeper awareness and a enlightened collective consciousness.

I thought this a perfect introduction, for it is said that Mayans, in their highest golden era of evolution (that means when their culture was the most peaceful and harmonious) honored a simple formula to everyday life: Energy + Time = Art.

In San Jose del Cabo, we honor this principle with great enthusiasm with our famous San Jose del Cabo Art Walk.  Walking in itself is an art of living; now imagine combining this with viewing art, sipping wine and dining at the fabulous neighborhood restaurants.

San Jose del Cabo is a charming town at Baja California Peninsula land’s end where a romantic renaissance movement defining San Jose del Cabo as an artsy town where time and space stop and merge has blossomed.

All galleries open their doors to visitors, inviting tourists and locals to mix in a relaxed and creative atmosphere.

Galleries like The Los Cabos Amber Gallery, where you can find one-of-a-kind jewelry and sculptures made from 22-25 million-year-old, 100 percent natural, untreated Chiapas Mexican amber; authentic Mexican artesanias; Mexican Folk Art; award-winning Mexican and international artists; paintings, sculptures, photography and prints. Galleries where you can interact with original art (life castings), admire genuine pottery and ceramic art, Mata Ortiz pottery, Zimbabwe’s sculptors, enjoy contemporary Mexican artists known nationally and internationally in important collections and museums; and places where to find Blacksmith Art and Restoration. Casa Dahlia is having 6 shows over the season highlighting the latest work by our own artists such as Antonio Farina, Antonio Viveros, Patricia Larsen, Luis Espiridion, Dinorah Dominguez, Leah Porter, and Sondra Richardson.

The Art Walk is starting one week early, October 25, but the big festivities will begin November 1 for Dia de los Muertos. As in the past years, each gallery will have altars and decorations, and live music and dancing in the street in conjunction with the town’s celebration which includes more of the same. Despite the construction happening on Morelos Street, we plan to carry on as usual. As a side note, they promise us to complete the construction the end of January. November 1st is something you don’t want to miss if you are to get closer to mystic Mexican culture.

The San Jose del Cabo Art Walk is a beautiful celebration of the simple art of living. Moment by moment, breath by breath…artist by artist,  fill your heart with enthusiasm for the beauty of things. Elevate your state of mind with the rewarding joy that creativity gives to the admirer.  Why not stay a few days and walk the town?

November through June, from 5:00 to 9:00, every Thursday.
