Art Opening: Enmascarados III: (Homage to Lucha Libre)

Posted on Wed, Apr 8, 2009 at 4:00 AM

Release Date: 2009-04-08

We were recently re-won-over by lucha libre as an awesomely fun archetype, mostly due to the efforts of those superb masked men of the Dignowity Hill Pushcart Derby team, Los Luchadores. So we’re newly interested in a group art exhibition at Gallista Gallery opening this weekend: The flyer for ENMASCARADAS III features a luchador en máscara y un smoking, looking suave, thoughtful and seriously up to something; a complex warrior for modern times. With contributing artists such as L.A.’s Angel Quesada, San Anto’s Beto Gonzales and Enrique Martinez (above), Jose Rodriguez of Venezuela, and Faustinus Daraet of Mexico/Belgium (!?) , likely much the same can be said for the artwork. 6-10pm Sat, Apr 11, 1913 S. Flores, (323) 788-9463, gallista.com.
