Autobody Fine Art presents Alameda's first Dia De Los Muertos festival and exhibition Saturday, October 31st from 12:00pm till 10:00pm.
The festival will feature local and traditional food, arts and activities. Orgullo Mexicana, an all-female mariachi group, and Aztec dancers will be performing throughout the festival and on into the evening. Also there will be a community altar open to everyone to bring tokens and photos of their loved ones who have passed.
The island of Alameda is so appropriately centered in the middle of a cultural convergence. It's ever emerging cultural awareness as well as the influences we carry back here will continue the preservation of this 3,000 year old celebration in La Isla De Los Muertos, or Island Of The Dead. An all-day festival and exhibition celebrates the holiday of Dia De Los Muertos and its place in our community as we live, work and die in the East Bay.
Dia De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is not a dark mournful commemoration but a vibrant joyful celebration. It gives us a moment to evoke the lives of our ancestors and loved ones by telling the stories we long to remember. Brightly colored cempasuchitls, or flower of the dead, that blossom in the valleys of México, drape over pale gray concrete graves. The scent of sweet pine drifts through the air from burning copal, guiding the spirits to their offerings. Homemade dishes of favorite meals and water to quench the soul beckon the spirits of our ancestors to rest peacefully with the living. A shroud is lifted between the two realms to share this special day together.
Exhibition will feature the following artists:
Salvador Cortez Jr.
Gary-Paul Barbosa Prince
Festival will feature the following vendors:
Corazon Del Pueblo
Tu Tienda Azteca

Reception: Friday, September 11, 2009 / 7-10 p.m.
Renee Castro's work is elliptical. She weaves contemporary fables from metaphors and anecdotes ripped from the near and distant past. I could explain it further, but the cadence of her statement is all the introduction needed. Viewing the work is the only way to understand the visual logic of a dreamlike state.
"I dream of you
Creation stories, tall tails, the old and the new are the foundation for my paintings and drawings of Native American women. In addition, I found inspiration from the sexualization of women and stereotypes put upon Native Americans. I grew up with images of romanticize paintings of Native American people. These were not the images I saw day to day. These depictions of my culture were of a different time and age, which were not always depicted true. Now I take that old idea and make it new. From headdress, high heels, face paint, eyeliner, animals, playing cards and cigarettes they are all subject matter that I use to reinterpret images and memories."

This group from Oakland, CA came together through an idea MC/Vocalist/Producer Ty Hardman had back in 2003. He handled all production, recording, instrumentation, and vocals on the demo tracks, but it was only until a complete band was formed, that the sound became fully realized. Each member in the band is deep rooted in music here in the Bay Area, and once this lineup of the group formed, Hypnotic started quite a stir in the area with their live performances. Live sets include Drummer Steve Pellerin, Vocalist Carmen Pellerin, Keys player Jonathan Veekner, Jon Merker on Bass, Percussionist Mike Demasio, and Shomari Mosey on Sax; bringin' you a smooth blend of Reggae, Soul, Hip-Hop, Jazz and a little something extra. Shows are packed with energy, infectiously dancey grooves that get you bobbin your head and movin your feet, good vibes, plenty of improv just when the time is right, and often speak on current relevant issues that we all face. They are currently working on a live DVD/CD package that was recorded at E'xpression College for Digital Arts, as well as some clubs local to the Bay. It is set to be released in August 2009. In the meantime, come check ‘em at a local get down near YOU! Keep your soul open. Speak from the heart. Not the mind. Peace & Blessings

ARTIST RENEE CASTRO aka LADY RENI : has been working on some new mix media drawings and paintings that she's super excited about. She is playing around with two ideas : Tattoo art and my Native American culture ( Ohlone/Muwekma (from the Bay Area), Texas Kickapoo and Spanish). working on integrating the two…But for now they are two separate concepts. www.ladyreniart.mfbiz.com
