EMILIO RODRIGUEZ LARRAIN EXHIBIT

A group of us received a private, guided, tour of Rodriguez Larrain's exhibition by one of the curators herself: Mrs. Sharon Lerner.

Rodriguez Larrain, one of Peru’s most important artists, marked the
panorama of visual arts in Peru in the second half of the twentieth century. 

VISIT TO MAC

This month we went to the Museum of Contemporary Art. Located in Barranco, this museum offers a privileged position, on a small airy hill, bound up by trees.

The special occasion for our visit at the MAC was Lika Mutal's remarkable exhibition 'El espejo de piedra' or 'The Stone Mirror'.




VISIT TO MALI


A group of us enjoyed a guided tour of two of MALI's current exhibitions: 'La otra margen: Pintura Geometrica en el Peru (1947-58)' and 'Chavin'.  Both exhibitions were well displayed and easy to walk through.  The museum building itself is a work of art. We also found time to have a drink together at the museum's restaurant, to exchange opinions and comments. 


CHOFA AVENDAÑO ATELIER


Our group met at Chofa's atelier in Barranco, a wonderful Victorian home in Barranco, which she shares with 8 artists. 


Besides being a very talented artist, Chofa has published a cookbook, “Aprendiendo a Comer Sano,” and has read AWLC's Fresh Flavors! cover to cover and claims it is the best cookbook of the many she owns!

VISIT TO GALERIA LUCIA DE LA PUENTE 


We were so fortunate to admire Jose Tola's las exhibition:  "Desde el Mirador del Tiempo", the last exhibition of painter Jose Tola. 


Tola is at the moment one of the most respected Peruvian visual artists.


VISIT TO MALI


The museum and galleries group resumed activities with a visit to the Art Museum of Lima, where they enjoyed over 300 works from the Jose Sabogal Exhibit. 


Read about José Sabogal from Peru This Week.



VISIT TO CASA MATE  

We enjoyed the marvelous home and exhibit of photos taken by world-renown photographer, Mario Testino.

VISIT TO ENLACE


This past May, we were privileged to meet Luz Negib, the renown Peruvian Artist, at Enlace - Arte Contemporario Gallery on Camino Real, to view her exhibit, Landscapes- Lights and Shadows


Luz Negib met with us and answered questions for our members.
