Guardino Gallery has been part of Portland's NE Alberta Street art scene since 1997 and has been having an annual Day of the Dead art show for 14 years. This 14th year has a wonderful collection of spooky selections that feature lots of skeletons and other spooky subjects. Some are very much in the style of the Mexican festival and others are quite new and different. Take a look at the whole show online at this link.
Here's what they say about the exhibition:
The 14th annual Day of the Dead Show is a loving celebration about taking away the mystique of death with art raging from lighthearted to deeply profound. This year 43 artists were challenged to interpret this Latino tradition and make it their own. This show features paintings, ceramics, fabric, wood, embroidery, prints and more.
Opens September 24. See the art and pay your respects with two public altars. Mask and social distancing are required to see the show in person.
