ArTrujillo Studio Gallery is proud to present a new art exhibit Caribbean Dreams by Rigel Sauri
featuring seascapes and other vibrant creations inspired by his native Mexican Caribbean and Pacific coast.
Born into a family of artists in Yucatan Mexico, Rigel had been an apprentice to the arts as far back as his memory takes him. His entire maternal family painted either professionally or as a hobby. Although lacking a formal education in art beyond the basics, he knew where his career path would take him.
For several years as a youth, Rigel resided in various tourist resorts in the Mexican Caribbean and the Pacific Coast. As an avid scuba diver and nature photographer, an immense fascination was awakened in him for tropical life in and out of water.
Since his arrival to the United States in 1989, lured by true love, he has been painting nonstop for numerous private collectors, hotel chains, casinos and restaurants as well as professional buildings and landmarks across the Midwest and Mexico. His specialty lies in mural painting but he has also exhibited other artwork at several galleries in the Minneapolis area.
At present Rigel spends half of his time in Minnesota and heads to the Yucatan Peninsula for winter in search of his subjects and brings them back to the states in the form of paintings.
Join us at the opening reception on Saturday, March 23, 6:00 – 10:00 PM followed by a late-night bash at ArTrujillo Studio Gallery featuring DJ WAMM, local Mexican fare, various poets and performers. The event is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
