Virgen de Guadalupe Exhibit

Due to the fact that we live in the Border Region, much of the beautiful Mexican Culture is prevailant in our community. The Virgen de Guadalupe Competition and Exhibition is held every year this week. I am very fortunate to work for a school district that has its own gallery, actually my high school has its own gallery but this event was held in the district gallery.
There are two seperate competitions, one for the students and another for professional artists. I did not participate this year, although I have in the past and have won 2nd place with one of my pieces.This year three of my students participated in the competition and one of my students took 2nd place. The exhibit had a great turn out and the pieces were amazing. I apologize for not having pics of the gallery and exhibit, but the battery in my camera died as soon as I began to photograph the event. I had posted one of the pieces in an earlier post, but had not shown the other two. I think the kids did a great job, If I do say so myself.
