New works by Santa Fe artist Sandra Casaus.
As a child growing up in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Sandra Casaus was influenced by artist-painter Tommy Macaione, who practiced his art in the Santa Fe Plaza. Macaione, known as Santa Feâs âPatron Saint of the Artsâ, inspired Casaus to someday dare to paint. Through the influences of the art and culture in Santa Fe and her own trial-and-error, Casaus shares with us a view into her world of color, creativity, and imagination inspired by a lifetime of mental recollections of people, natural beauty, culture, and imaginary places in her first exhibit âSo You Think You Can Paintâ. This show is dedicated to her parents Joaquin and Lily.Â In celebration of Women and Creativity during the month of March, El Chante: Casa de Cultura will organize and host a series of events entitled âBeing a Woman is Revolutionaryâ. The month long of events are co-sponsored and co-hosted by Los Jardines Institute (South Valley), Las Pistoleras Instituto Cultural de Arte (Taos), Voces Feministas, and UNM MEChA. This event is also a part of the Women and Creativity events. For more information and a detailed listing of events please go to: (events will be listed by February 13, 2014)
