Local Artists Changes Receptions in Merced County

Updated: Aug 19, 2018

MAH Magazine caught up with Eulalia Gámez at Coffee Bandits last Wednesday during her Meet and Greet Reception. Gámez thought she’d change things up a bit by inviting the community to join her for an afternoon of interactive art. Gámez was available from 3-9pm and had over 12 community members join her to share stories, inspiration, painting and drawings. While we were there we asked the artist a few questions.

How long have you been an artist?

I started as a singer in church when I was younger. Once I got into college I started painting more, I have been painting now for about 9 years.

What role does artists have in society?

Express the making of art so people can relate to the community and other people.

What is your favorite art subject?

Art for women and women in transition, I paint a lot of nudes. Not to objectify women, it’s not about the body or sexuality, it’s more of an expression.

What do you dislike about the art world?

I have had good experiences with art. I would like to see more artist work out side of the classroom and be inspired.  I see a lot of still life drawings, which are usually just school work.

You are also into fashion, what inspired you to become a designer?

“I got into fashion because of my mom, she use to make all sorts of things sewing, embroidered and crotchet. She also has great taste in fashion. I mostly got into it because of my mom and dolls I had, I always wanted to change the dolls clothes and so I'd ask my mom to buy little dresses, she'd say no you can make it and gave me a needle and thread, I'd draw different outfits and cut up clothes for fabric. I was 7 or 8 when I started hand-sewing my own dresses for my dolls.”
