Live Art Auction
Come out and see the artists at work!
Carlos César Diaz Castro, from La Paz, Mexico, is a photographer, graphic designer, painter, communicator, and teacher whose pictorial work presents honest images of a generous environment of forms and details linked to his admiration for the land. Without idealizing the iconography of the everyday, he takes his notes directly from the nature of the moment and then executes his definitive works in the studio. His work can be found at Centro de Artes Populares in La Paz, BCS, Mexico.
Brian Guffey is a self-taught artist with images from his life experiences and childhood loosely represented in his paintings. Storytelling, children’s books, and his grandmother are all inspirations for conceptualizing imagery and themes. His work can be seen as either light-hearted, thought-provoking, or both simultaneously.
Tori Sepulveda is a graduate of UC Santa Barbara where she majored in fine art, then taught high school advanced placement art for 37 years. She is please to continue teaching and painting here in Todos Santos where she can use her experience to inspire others and support the community. Her art can be seen at Mangos Gallery as well as her own studio.
Robert E. Wood is a Canadian artist adept at portraying a wide variety of subject matter including landscape, seascape, still life, street scenes, and more. He has been a frequent visitor to Todos Santos since 2007, and this is his 4th time painting on location at GastroVino to benefit local causes. Robert has been honored to have won first place in the only art competition he ever entered: Arabella art magazine’s 2014 “Great Canadian Landscape Painting Competition.” His paintings hang in private and corporate collections around the world, and his work is represented by the Diaz Castro Galleria in La Paz.
