Photo Exhibition of the Piñacate Biosphere Reserve from Puerto Peñasco photographer Jesusa Gamboa.
The exhibition will be at the Mexican Consulate in Phoenix
The wild and other worldly scenery of Rocky Point’s nearby Pinacate Reserve serves as the inspiration for the fabulous photography of Jesusa Gamboa. Her work will be on exhibit at the Mexican Consulate in Phoenix.
This is the first in a series of cultural exchanges that the city of Puerto Penasco will organize. The goal is to share cultural, social, and artistic aspects of Rocky Point’s unique location in Northern Mexico. The city’s Department of Art and Culture is taking part in arranging this event.
The Cultural Liaison for Puerto Peñasco, Maria Conchita Peralta, has coordinated with the Mexican consul in Phoenix to organize this event. “This is a great opportunity to share the talent of our artists, and the beauty of our environment with the people of Phoenix” says Ms. Peralta. “We saw a lot of excitement with visitors from the U.S. with last November’s Day of the Dead Ceremony – a first for Peñasco. Our goal is to support a higher level of events, and create a wider variety of tourism options associated with Puerto Peñasco. We are working to bring well known novelist William Gordon to Rocky Point, as well as to re-start the city’s annual Jazz celebration.”
The work of Jesusa Gamboa will be on display the Mexican Consulate Galleries beginning Friday, January 22nd, and running through the end of February. There will be an inauguration starting at 5:30pm. The Consulate is located at 320 East McDowell Road.
