May 24th and 25th 5th annual Rosarito Art Fest

What is on your list of things that makes Rosarito a magical place to live and to visit? High on most people`s list are the local artists and the annual event which showcases their talents, the Rosarito Art Fest.


This year, the 5th 2 day cultural festival will be the 24th - 25th of May on Blvd. Benito Juárez Sur, (in front of the Festival Plaza Hotel), from 11 am to 10 pm. (Admission is free. The experience is priceless.)


There will be more than 80 artists participating in this amazing exposition. Many of them, such as Robert Kidd, David Silvah, Scott Kennedy, Maria Evangelina, Becris, Claudia Cogo, and Francisco Cabello are well-known talents who have extensive careers and are considered among the great Masters of northern Mexico. There will also be work by emerging artists. Even in this group are many, such as Alonso Delgadillo, known in the art world as “El Norteño” whose work has already become highly collectible and who currently has an exhibition at Tijuana Cultural Center.


There will be a cornicopia of paintings, sculptures and photographs to choose from, as well as an excellent array of handmade crafts, all exhibited under more than 110 tents. Each artist will be present to meet with the public and to talk about their work. Some of them have very unique stories as to how they found their way into the arts and some of them represent many generations of craft smiths. All work will be available for purchase.


This year, the festival will again include a live music stage. Performances of folk dance, jazz, tango, contemporary dance, classical music are scheduled. Featured performers include Afrotruko, a band of Latin Jazz, and Mariachi Aguila.


There will be sections with organic products, great masters of Mexican folk art, like the famous Mata Ortiz Ceramics from Chihuahua Mexico, Oaxacan terracotta ceramics by Angelica Vasquez, winner of the National Award of Science and Art in the folk art category, among others. Also, local crafts and jewelry will be present. Of course, there will be food, as well as booths guiding you toward tourism activities and local attractions.


Rosarito Art Fest 2014 promises to reflect the energy, culture, talent, knowledge, and excitement of the wealth of artistic talent of Northern Baja.


Come and spend an hour, an afternoon, or a day. If you can, come for the entire two days. The local hotels have special rates for those attending the event. There`s a lot to see and do!


If you`ve seen photos from previous years, you know that your presence will definitely add color to this event and, at the same time, help us spread the word, beyond this event, about the best of Baja - the arts, the delicious foods, the fantastic music, and the friendliness of our town.

Baja Artist Nuria Benitez, Debuts as a Phoenix Rising


In 2005, Baja artist Nuria Benitez was diagnosed with cancer. Making it to her 40th birthday seemed very far-fetched. It took 7 years, 25 chemos, 25 radiation rounds and 13 surgeries to fight and win the battle for her life. She is now well and happy and grateful. Most importantly, she is back at her art studio feeling stronger and better than ever.

Last spring, Dr. Gregory Payne, a member of the Rediscover Rosarito team invited Nuria, and her fellow local artists David Silvah and Antonio Proa to exhibit their artwork in Spain. As plans for their travel came together, it seemed poetic that on October 2nd, her 40th birthday. she would be in the air on her way to exhibit her work at the Blanquerna Communication University in Barcelona, followed by ACVIC Centre D`Arts Contemporanies in Vic, and Café Museum in Valencia. Talk about making a comeback! 

Nuria says that ever since she could walk and talk, her life has been all about color. She says it is almost like another language that she speaks, “it’s the way that I think and view the world…. In full color.”

Nuria’s art work falls between fauvism and expressionism with a Latin flare. It’s not about the lines; it’s not about shapes or figures; it is all about the color; the passion and what could be called, for lack of a better phrase, the violence of color.
Along with her fellow artists, David Silvah and Antonio Proa, Nuria arrived in Barcelona, Spain on her 40th birthday, October 2nd,. The gentlemen took Nuria out for a picturesque birthday dinner in Las Ramblas. They were each excited to be there. Art and inspiration seem to follow them everywhere. A different kind of beauty from the beauty of the Baja was around them. The foliage in the trees, the urban art on the metro station, the sound of live music; it was all inspiring and good preparation for their visits to the museums that house many of the most amazing masterpieces of all times.

All three of the artists agree that one of their top moments was meeting contemporary master Carles Verges, in the ancient Catalonia, town of Vic. Mr. Verges gracefully opened his studio for an intimate dinner in their honor. 
For them, Vic was a window to the past. Like they were stepping back into history, their arrival had been timed perfectly to enjoy the Sardana, a typical dance held in the middle of the plaza. The old roman buildings and the town architecture surrounding the ACVIC Centre D`Arts Contemporanies, was for them a beautiful juxtaposition of historic and modern inspiration. For artists who notice everything, it was all almost too much, but back in the Baja, they are now letting it sink in and hoping they can call up the same exact feelings as they get back to sitting in front of a blank canvas.

Nuria, David, and Antonio, agree that they gained so much from this experience. From the people they met, including art dealers, gallery owners, fine art painters, and new friends, to the museums they were able to visit, and the opportunities they had to be face to face with the genius of Dali`s creations, Picasso’s masterpieces, and Gaudi’s inspirational shapes, they come home to us somewhat overwhelmed and most definitely inspired.

The three artists left Europe mulling ideas for their work in Tijuana and Rosarito, which we should start seeing soon. They know that they left behind with those who saw their exhibits, a delicious taste of the art produced in Baja. They have proudly shown their colors and their Mexican/Latin passion. They know Europe wants to see more. They affirm that they are proudly up for the challenge.
What is next for Nuria herself? “Just give me a couple of weeks in my studio, and I will show you. I’ll show you all that I saw in Spain and France and how it has moved me and changed me. For an artist nothing goes unnoticed. Every detail, every experience is expressed. Every line, every contrast or shade, contains an impression, a memory…. whether it is from a trip, from a person, from love or from nature, from success or from an illness, you can be sure it will be captured and transformed into something beautiful.”

When I further asked Nuria how she would characterize all the effort and the ups and downs of her first 40 years she said, “ To have been through a lot and to survive, to be able to continue to create and produce art….I say yes. Yes to all!” 

After 15 years as a professional artist and the uncertainty and emotional roller coaster inherent in overcoming a serious cancer diagnosis, this year has held deep meaning in Nuria’s life. 2013 has been all about making a comeback. Come see Nuria, the embodiment of a risen phoenix at either her Tijuana studio at calle Mina 164 col. Hipodromo, or visit her at the Baja Gallery in front of the Rosarito Beach Hotel.

Rosarito’s Friends of the Library Teach English


The Friends of the Library have begun a program of teaching local kids to speak English. Even though English is the most widely spoken language in the world, the language of international business, and especially important in border areas like Rosarito to ensure employment opportunities, many school-age children in Rosarito have little or no opportunity to learn English.


The inaugural program places six English-speaking volunteers in classrooms at the Ciudad del Nino Club de Leones school in La Gloria. Each volunteer will work with one grade level or one grouping of two grade levels, one day per week, to help the students learn to speak, read and write English.

Students in the primary grades 1-6 and the secondary grades 7-9 will be the beneficiaries of the volunteer English education. While the volunteers will emphasize speaking and understanding English, they will use learning games, written exercises and language drills to help the kids to develop comfort and ease with English. The volunteers – Danny Benitez, Gloria Casillas, Ron de Jong, Jill Phelps, Chip Pierpoint and Susan Shea – are collaborating to find effective methods and learning materials to help the students learn to speak this important second language.

The Friends of the Library are also working to develop and offer English programs in the most underserved public libraries, so that area kids have an opportunity to access English education. Specifically, the schools in Primo Tapia have no English education currently – but the Friends of the Library plan to offer after school instruction in English at the local Primo Tapia library, and at other similarly underserved library areas. Those programs will be in operation later this year.

The Friends of the Library are dedicated to promoting reading and literacy in Rosarito and helping Rosarito’s young people prepare for productive and fulfilling lives. These programs of English education will join current FOL reading programs and contests as important opportunities for local kids.

The upcoming community-wide reading program Rosarito Lee (Rosarito Reads) will be, not only for the children, but for the whole community to join together in a city-wide initiative to promote reading and literacy. Similar to “One Book, One San Diego” and city-wide reading initiatives in many U.S. cities, it will be the first such city-wide program in Baja California, and, as far as we know, in all of Mexico.

All of these programs are made possible by the members of Friends of the Library and those who support the fundraising activities of the group. Memberships, which start at $10 per year, are available online at www.friendsofthelibrary.com.mx. There, you can also find more information about the reading programs, the upcoming Rosarito Lee initiative and the various fun fundraising events which support FOL.

Baja Rally Massively Successful in Inaugural 2013 Event


The Baja Rally for motorcycles attracted big name racers Larry Roeseler, Quinn Cody & Andy Grider to Mexico to test their skill at the first ever navigation based adventure race in picturesque Baja CA. Unlike traditional off road racing, rally riders use no maps, GPS or course markings and because the course is secret, the playing field is more level and adds to the excitement of the outcome. 

Ensenada, Baja Ca, Mexico (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
The Inaugural Baja Rally motorcycle ended in Baja CA’s seaside town of San Quintin on the sand dunes of the Santa Maria Hotel and has been deemed a full success with all riders accounted for and safe. Baja racing champion and 5-time Dakar Rally entrant Andy Grider (#36) won the title for the first ever navigation-based rally-raid staged in Baja CA with Cameron Steele and Chilly White rounding out the podium. Dakar vet and off road champion Quinn Cody (#39) enjoyed a comfortable lead from the first mile of the rally until his engine blew up only 10 miles from the finish line.
The Baja Rally is the first navigation-based rally raid held in Baja CA and is being warmly welcomed by Mexican authorities and hosts looking for new and interesting events in Baja where newly introduced visitors can take time to learn the varying cultures of Baja’s diverse landscapes. Baja Rally creator Scotty Breauxman deemed the event at smashing success and credited local hosts, sponsors and his team with pulling off what may mark a turning point for off road racing in Baja.
"The Baja Rally is a traveling, cultural event that transcends traditional off road racing and the true spirit of the outdoor sporting adventure", describes Breauxman, "The nature of our rally is more cerebral and less chaotic than what we are used to in Baja. This elevates the level of safety we can provide in delivering this cultural experience for everyone."
Baja Rally 2.0 in May 2014 hopes to parlay the successes of the inaugural Baja Rally to deliver the most adventurous and scenic rider experience possible while utilizing unique safety systems to protect participants, officials, support teams, hosts and spectators. The Baja Rally is designed entirely around the rider experience so there is an opportunity to create a course that paints a visual picture and tells a story through the changing altitudes, weather and dynamic terrain.
