Xico’s Eye Candy Opening Reception: The Recap

Last Friday evening the Xico Galería opened it’s doors to the community and artists for our Eye Candy reception. This is the first exhibition of its kind for Xico, a jewelry and textile exhibit.

The exhibit features 12 women and their beautiful creations that dazzle and shine. From woven copper to beaded jewlery to wire rings (Xico special guest: Senen Velarde) – many of the artists were on hand to talk about their work with the community. Others in attendance included Xico Board members, Adriana Gallego – Arizona Commission on the Arts, and artists’ friends & family.

It was crowed and we got to unveil our new sound system, courtesy of Tim Cleavenger, AZ Sound . Special thanks to everyone who came out and made the event memorable.

Missed out? Eye Candy will be up through March 12th, 2011.
