Venture Gallery: Reception in Honor of Muralist Guillermo Wagner Granizo
This event has already passed
February 1-28, Venture Gallery will be exhibiting the artwork of Guillermo Wagner Granizo, including 4 large murals and 35 smaller tiles. We cordially invite you to a reception on Friday, February 16, 5pm-7pm, to celebrate his work and meet his sons, Ron and Bob Wagner, who are hosting the event in his honor.
In 2015, Guillermo Wagner Granizo’s mural outside the Monterey Conference Center was carefully removed to allow for the renovation of the building. In Spring 2018, the mural will be reinstalled at the Monterey Conference Center. Originally dedicated to the City of Monterey in 1984, this mural is a stunning illustration of the history of the Monterey area.
In his artwork, Granizo devoted all of his energies to the rendering of ceramic tile murals and mosaics with special attention to the creatives uses of color glazes. In the late 70s he began an extraordinary career transformation as a ceramic tile muralist, historian, and fine artist. Many of his works are on public display in many cities in California, the U.S., and the world.
