Lepe Father/Daughter Benefit Exhibit, December 10, 4-6


An invitation from our friends, in case you’re in town during this exciting event:

Puerto Vallarta Friends,
You and anyone you care to share this invitation with are invited to join us for an afternoon reception December 10 from 4-6 at the new Casa de las Flores. We’ll be finished with our remodel AND we are opening our on-site art gallery, Galeria Habana Vallarta, with a special benefit exhibit:
The 15 Hidden Treasures of Manuel Lepe

The works of the famous Vallarta artist are from the private collection of Marcella Lepe, the artist’s daughter, and most have been out of circulation since Manuel Lepe’s death 20 years ago. One painting was just selected to be part of this year’s UNICEF holiday card series. Collector’s of Lepe’s works include: Queen Elizabeth, Fidel Castro, Elizabeth Taylor, and Peter O’Toole. For his work, Lepe was named National Painter of Mexico by President Luis Echeverria.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of Lepe paintings will benefit the reconstruction of the Lepe Children’s Art Studio and Museum. You can preview paintings at manuellepe.net. Naif paintings by Marcella Lepe and other artists from Puerto Vallarta and La Habana will also be on exhibit.
Feel free to share the attached invite with anyone who might be interested.
RSVP – 322-120-5242.
