"Milagros"

Contreras Gallery - 2010

This exhibition is based on the Ex-Voto style of painting, with European and Hispanic origins.
This is a guest artist event, with over 16 Ex-Votos and Retablos

 

Ex-Voto, taken from Latin, (ex voto suscepto) meaning: "from the vow made".

Ex-Votos can be a variety of offerings, to saints, The Virgin Mary, or The Trinity.

Contreras Gallery features the most popular of the offerings, which are especially produced in Mexico.

They are the hand painted votives on metal plates, offered in gratitude, and devotion for the fulfillment of a personal vow.
