This past weekend, TPP participated in the 2nda Feria de Arte y Diseno at La Galeria Nacional. This initiative of Galeria Nacional and her director Marilu Purcell and her staff has been a blessing for many young and established artists and designers who have amazing works and few places to show it off.
With Circa Art Fair disapperaing and Art Galleries closing due to the economic situation we are very fortunate to have this opportunnity to take art and design and make it available and accessible to new crowds and young collectors.
This second edition was an overwhelming success. First one was during the fiestas de la Calle San Sebastian where huge crowds were expected and recieved. The second edition of the event was set for May 4th and 5th and even though we know people come where good deals and works are shown and offered, we at TPP never expected the huge crowd of art and desgin lovers that made it in the 2 day event.
We hope there is a 3rd and 4th coming up soon because we are ready to show more great art and new artists. This is a great way to get young people into collecting and supporting local artists and designers.
This edition El GuggenSITO inflatable public art piece by mexican artist Eder Castillo was exhibited and proved to be the best in show. Kids and adults of all ages were having a great time at jumping all day. Kids were happy, parents were happy because they had time to see the works while the kids played. It was an amazing experience to see how art can change the dynamic of an entire event.
Great food and coffe at great prices and everything ran perfectly.
Thanks to everyone who made it and for all the love and support shown.
