Ruiz-Healy Collection of Contemporary Oaxacan Art

Discover works by some of the best known Oaxacan artists, including Rodolfo Morales, Francisco Toledo, Shinzaburo Takeda and eight other contemporary artists at the Marjorie Barrick Museum. The exhibition represents one of the best collections portraying the div...ersity and creativeness of the painters from the coastal Mexican state of Oaxaca.

This exhibit draws works from the Ruiz-Healy Art, a gallery located in San Antonio, Texas that specializes in modern and contemporary works by Latin American artists –
paintings, sculptures, photographs and works on paper.

An opening reception will be held for the chance to join the Consulate of Mexico in Las Vegas and the Marjorie Barrick Museum for a grand opening of the gallery and a chance to talk with Patricia Ruíz-Healy, who will be given a talk about the gallery works. The Reception is held Apr. 13, 2011, 6pm - 8pm
