Artists' Exhibits Ultimately, it's the audience that decides if a piece of artwork is important enough to display in their home. It doesn't matter how hard or how long an artist has labored over his artwork. It does matter that you know something about the artist to appreciate his artwork. Sometimes the more you know about an artist the more you will appreciate his artwork. Sometimes appreciation leads to importance. MMPublishing will include a short biography for each artist and publish an interview with the artist that has been invited to exhibit his artwork in the Galeria.

Ramona is currently exhibiting her Jewelry Artwork at the Galeria Tonantzin in San Juan Bautista. I am inspired by nature, its colors, shapes, materials, and movement. The colors of autumn, a swaying tree, rocks in a mountain stream. When creating a piece I first implement a focal point then enhance the focal point. my emphasis is on semi precious stones and natural materials. I began creating jewelry when I looked to buy jewelry for myself and couldn’t find anything that enhanced my femininity.
