Kite flyers: Throwing roses to the sea, the tide returns laughter and sorrow.  After rambling in infinity, oceans against the wind, we are here with drums from the Cerro, giving rhythm to our hands.  Paulita Concepción a school that offered to its adventurers a pallet of colors, clay and dreams whose teachers above all let us fly, swim or be born.   It was our genesis; our inner child allows us to still believe despite the years that have passed that creation is one of the elementary substances in the world; a way that competes with the nature that supports us.  Flying a kite in Europe or America doesn’t make us different, because we use the same wind, probing that inexorable time that passed since we last saw each other but that it doesn’t erase our memories or essence of that time in our lives, a period where we discovered the art of creating, hoping that someone sees what we see and loves what we love.  Friends, this is a happy reunion that would go as far as our fingers and imagination allow, let’s give it string!  Let our kites fly.

Exhibit runs thru August 6th, 2010.
