December 9 – December 12
Opening reception Friday, December 9th, 5-8pm
The Virgin of Guadalupe is the patron saint of Mexico. She is often depicted with brown skin, an angel and moon at her feet and rays of sunlight that encircle her. One of the most popular religious devotions, her image has played an important role as a national symbol of Mexico, and her religious following has spread across Latin America and beyond. Join us for an evening of art and refreshments in her honor.
We’ll be featuring a selection of works from our collection, including vintage retablo and ex voto paintings, as well as work by local artists. We’ll be serving up deliciousness from South Philly Barbacoa at the opening on the 9th, as well as offering complimentary gift wrapping all that night. On Monday the 12th, we’ll be offering 20% off storewide in honor of the Virgin’s Feast Day!
