TANA is pleased to feature two distinct voices and visions from Mexico: Ramon Viera’s intricate wood engravings of religious and mythical themes and Nacho González Calleja’s stunning photographs of cane workers. Woodland is not only home to countless immigrants from Michoacán, but it is also the sister-city of La Piedad, one of the state’s important historical cities. Presenting these two distinct voices side by side raises awareness of the rich cultural heritage from Mexico’s heartland. Join us for the opening reception where we’ll have live music, great food (a taquero will be on hand), beautiful art, and community!
Opening Reception on Friday, February 5th from 6:00-8:00 pm at TANA (1224 Lemen Avenue, Woodland, CA)
Join TANA for its annual Día de los Muertos celebration on Friday, November 6th from 6-8 pm. Artist and activist Sharon Torres has organized twenty community members to create altars for TANA’s gallery space. Many of the altars are dedicated to local community and family members who have recently passed away. Día de los Muertos pays tribute to their lives and contributions. We will also have an exciting program, featuring Danza Kalpulli Tlayolotl, Ballet Folkórico de Beamer, a Selena Tribute performed by Trio UCD, poetry by Francisco Alarcón, and spoken word by Ike Torres, music, as well as face painting and food. We look forward to seeing you there!
