Take a bit of Chimayó home for the holidays

-A A +A

Show: Artists will display and sell their work Friday

By Jennifer Garcia

Chimayó is best known for red chile and El Santuario de Chimayó, but a group of local artists is hoping to soon be included in that list.
Joan and Lowlow Medina, along with their daughters Anamaria and Marisol, will be part of a holiday art show at the their gallery from 6-8 p.m. Friday.  
Along with the Medina family, Fernando Bimonte, Alfredo Baca, Charles Medina and Sharon Candelario will also show their work.
The Medinas are no strangers to the art world. In fact, Joan and their daughters were part of the “Her Legacy” art show at the Bond House Museum in Española in March.
Joan and Lowlow have been doing art for 30 years as a couple and got their start on a different kind of media — and what some might consider an unconventional way.
“Lowlow and I started by painting murals on cars. He did murals on walls and on wood or canvas, then he got me into painting on canvas, too,” Joan said of their artistic beginnings.
The couple’s children were exposed to art at early ages.
“My two daughters stated at the age of three. Now Ana is 17 and Marisol is eight,” Joan said.
