This season in Latin America and the Caribbean is a time of celebration.  Though Carnaval began in acknowledgement of a religious event, the celebration now incorporates traditional festivities related to the seasonal transition from winter to spring, and invites all ages and social classes to take part.  Whether rich or poor, old or young, Carnaval is a time for everyone in the community to let loose by joining in various forms of ritual, play and masquerade.  By wearing outrageous disguises, playing rowdy games and engaging in all-out revelry, communities bond through the shared sense of exhilaration and renewal that the Carnaval experience inspires.
Join us for a celebration of paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture & mixed media artwork reflecting the spirit of Carnaval - masquerade, play, masks, circus, tarot, magic, ritual & renewal.
