LOTERIA Los Cabos continues Pez Gordo Gallery’s famed annual tradition of presenting the largest and most recognized public art exhibitions in Los Cabos and Baja California Sur.

LOTERIA Los Cabos is an homage to the traditional Mexican card game, Loteria, which features 54 playing cards each portraying a different iconic subject (e.g., sun, rose, tequila bottle, heart, tree, etc.).

Known local artists have been selected to paint their personal versions of these popular images on oversized wooden “cards” measuring 100 x 150 cm. which will then be exhibited and sold to the public with 20% of the sales donated to the local charitable organization, Inspire Mexico.

LOTERIA Los Cabos will be on view November 2017 through April 2018 along the walking corridor of The Shoppes at Palmilla. A heavily publicized Opening Celebration at The Shoppes will inaugurate the exhibition Friday, November 24th, 2017 from 6-8 pm. Based on the success of our previous public exhibitions, we are expecting more than 400 attendees at the Opening Celebration and more than 3000 visitors to The Shoppes at Palmilla during the exhibition’s run.


Sixteen recognized Baja area artists have generously donated their talent and time to paint their interpretations of these iconic cards. Styles vary from colorful abstract designs to traditional Mexican naïve imagery to hyper-realistic motifs. Each card created is a unique expression of the artist’s creativity and inspiration.

The roster of artists participating include Gudmaro Aviles, Alejandrina Calderoni, Rafael Chavez, Liz Gonzalez, Pedro Gutierrez, Leticia Lebrija, Caryl Leffel, Brian McGuffey Fernando Nafarrate, Karla Nieto Hugo Ortega, Joaquin Pinedo, Jennier Power, Gloria Santoyo, Tanya Talamante and Jim Willliams.
