One of the May 2016 painting  groups at Cristi Fer Art Studio in San Miguel de Allende What a great month to be in San Miguel de Allende! A little hotter then usual, in the upper 80's. Less rain to speak off! May it's a month full of flowers, events, every weekend it's a celebration, parade, music concerts, mariachi, fireworks name it and it's going on. Some call it the low season, but for us at Cristi Fer Art Studio it has being a busy month. Working on new paintings both Fernando and I have being putting a lot of time in the studio. The class especial the One Painting in One Day, Doors of San Miguel, has being well attended, and some of the participants returned more then once bringing friends and family members.

Painting of the day result of my painting demonstration

During the One Painting in One Day workshop, I demonstrate different techniques, and ways of representing wall texture, door texture, depth.  As a result, by the end of the workshop I have a half finish painting. At times I take some extra time to finish it. I use this painting to sow different participants how to paint the texture of the wall, a flower pot, flags, a street lamp. And when we are faced with a "mistake" I demonstrate how we can incorporate it into the painting.

THE ART OF SEEING, New photographer’s travel tour in San Miguel de Allende 2013

Image
We are a team of two painters who recently moved to San Miguel from Playa del Carmen Mexico. We both love photography  and when taking a photo we understand, from an artist perspective , the importance of light, contrast, texture, layout, positive and negative space and so on. My first artistic appearances in the New Your art galleries was with photography. My teacher, photographer of NYC Ballet, at the time made a great impact in the way I “see” through the camera lenses. I no longer show or sell my photographs but the teacher in me (my first teaching experience was in 1989 in NYC) loves to share the way of “ Seeing”  as a photographer and artist. San Miguel de Allende offers an endless fountain of subject: architecture, nature, people… Join us in this charming Mexican town , bring your camera, and we’ll show you the best hidden place and share with you the art of SEEING.

First Friday in San Miguel de Allened

San Miguel de Allende announces the beginning or a monthly event that could revive the economy and enhance tourism, national and international in SMA. Many cities in North America adopted the tradition of First Friday "art walks", in which the town's art galleries and artists' studios will open their doors into Friday evening. The idea is that galleries will attract people to the downtown and enrich the art community by pooling their openings together into one monthly evening. Who will benefit? All the participating galleries in SMA plus restaurants, coffee shops, stores, street vendors, musicians and performance artists. Among the cities with art-oriented First Friday events are: Albany , Anchorage , Augusta , Bellingham , Binghamton , Burlington , Chicago , Columbus , Denver , Honolulu , Indianapolis , Juneau , Kalamazoo , Kansas City , Knoxville , Lincoln , Louisville , Las Vegas , Minneapolis, Scranton , Oakland , Philadelphia , Phoenix , Pittsburgh , R
