MECA is pleased to present Retablos31 – an annual silent auction fundraiser and exhibition of retablos celebrating the tradition of devotional painting, organized in collaboration with Lawndale. For this exhibition MECA invites artists from the Houston community to create original works of art following the tradition of devotional retablo making.
The theme of Retablos31 is promesas cumplidas (promises kept); promesas pedidas (promises made); devotional to a loved one (devocional a un ser amado), saint (a un santo), higher power (a un poder superior); and healing (sanación).
