EPMA’s permanent collection is particularly strong in Spanish viceroyal paintings from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries as well as Mexican retablos—the name for intimate domestic devotional paintings on tin or copper, typically produced by anonymous artisans. The term retablo originates from Latin meaning “behind the (altar) table.

Retablos are back on display in the Richard and Frances Mithoff Gallery.

Have you seen the new mural “Abstract Reality” at EPMA?

Ricardo “Enks” Uribe is an artist native from the border of El Paso/ Cd. Juarez. For the last 10 years, he has created local and international pieces of public art. As a traveling artist, communities and cultures influence most of his work. He started working as a graffiti calligrapher in the early 2000’s. Currently his artwork can be seen in public places in Denver CO/Los Angeles CA/Guadalajara Jalisco/Austin TX/Cd. Juarez and El Paso TX.
