"Mama Lupe's Counseling Service” retablo by Charles Carrillo

Join in a celebration of art, history, song and service with the community of Pajarito as the Gutierrez-Hubbell House History and Cultural Center christens their brand-new gallery space. The premiere exhibit Faith and the Gutierrez Family: The Role of Devotional Art in Colonial New Mexico features several retablos depicting the patron saints of the Gutierrez family created by world-renowned santero Dr. Charles Carrillo.

Dr. Carrillo and historian Felipe Mirabal host an informal presentation on the exhibit and how the faith of the family informed their service to the people of the South Valley. The night continues with live music from local son jarocho group Los Jaraneros del Valle and dancing under the stars. Savor delectable, traditional Spanish Colonial foods like dulce de membrillo, carne adovada tarts, biscochitos and jamaica tea while you explore the exhibit and chat with the artist. Dr. Carrillo’s works reside in the permanent collections of several prominent museums including the Smithsonian. You have the opportunity to add works from this exhibit to your collection Friday, May 8, from 6 to 8:30pm at the GHHHCC (6029 Isleta SW). Tickets cost $25 through gutierrezhubbellhouse.org.
