Galeria Contempo warmly invites you to meet Cathy Chalvignac on Friday, March 4, at an opening reception of her most recent works, to take place from 6 to 10 pm.

A Parisian by birth and a resident Mexican by choice she spent her formative years in Canada, where she developed a heart connection to Native American Indians. After art school she became passionate about photography, which she put to good use during several years of extensive travel. “These trips were a huge revelation for me, from seeing and meeting the locals, to observing their culture, their humility, and the beauty and light within.”

With nothing rigid about her art or the way she thinks, it’s no small wonder that it would ultimately be a vibrantly colorful country like Mexico that best resonated with her soul- and to this day she maintains a fascination with the Mayan culture. Painting the ethnic groups that she has fallen in love with as authentically as she can, she tries “to capture their inner silence their humility and wisdom.”

Galeria Contempo is located at Basilio Badillo 252 in Colonia Emiliano Zapata. For more information, please click here.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is very helpful for someone who arrives for the first time to the destination, because through its content one can discover really nice places to visit. Besides, it is a guide for us as residents, because we know from a good source the new things we can do. People take the magazine and in one place they find hotels, restaurants, galleries, real estate and other featured services.”

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”
