Meawhile, in San Francisco ...

This year the Desert Triangle is breaking out of our time zone.  On the same night of our opening in Mexic-Arte in the Central Time Zone -- January 26th, 2018 -- there was an opening in San Francisco, in the Pacific Time Zone featuring 2 shows that relate to the Desert Triangle.

Crossing Paths opened at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts.  This exhibition was co-organized by Pavel Acevedo, on of the Desert Triangle artists.  It also included 3 other artists from the Desert Triangle -- Francisco Delgado, Los Dos, and Nani Chacon.

who also had an exhibition that night

Chicano printmaker Michael Roman passed away last year, so this show was a look back on the colorful prints he did at the Mission Cultural Center.  He printed a lot of t-shirts for Carlos Santana, and his stencil work was featured in Madonna's movie "Desperately Seeking Susan."  He taught Krrrl how to silk screen, and thus had an influence on the Desert Triangle.

curated the Michael Roman exhibtion

Note:  Many of the artists in the above exhibitions had work in the Albuquerque print show -- Prints by Southwest -- in April 2017 -- Pavel Acevedo, Francisco Delgado, Los Dos, Juan R Fuentes, and Michael Roman

UPDATE:  Accion Latina Gallery in San Francisco, is having an opening with the prints of 
Malaquias Montoya.  OPening March 10th, in the Juan R Fuentes gallery.  

This gallery is very close to the Mission Cultural Center, where the above exhibitions were.
