LOS CABOS, Mexico, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Featuring stunning contemporary architecture and lavish touches such as quartz columns, marble floors and fountains on both the interior and exterior, Luxury Avenue Los Cabos has been likened to a museum filled with the artistry of the world's best fashion and beauty designers. Now Luxury Avenue has literally transformed its halls into an art gallery by showcasing the work of well-known and up-and-coming Mexican artists alongside its renowned designer boutiques in a series of permanent and rotating exhibitions. This new endeavor seamlessly aligns the latest trends in travel, fashion, beauty and art.
The first permanent art exhibit at Luxury Avenue Los Cabos features 69 handcrafted pieces of Mata Ortiz pottery. Crafted in Mata Ortiz, a small village in the state of Chihuahua, each piece is made from local and natural materials, shaped, polished and painted by hand just as these pieces were created 1,000 years ago. The intricate designs on each piece vary from the traditional to those featuring a more innovative and contemporary style. All of the pottery on display is available for sale at Ultrajewels within Luxury Avenue Los Cabos.
"My vision for Luxury Avenue Los Cabos has been to create a retail venue where the top talents in the worlds of beauty, fashion and art are displayed together in a spectacular resort destination setting," said Elena Villarreal, Owner and Founder. "Our goal is to highlight the creative artistry of Mexico by showcasing this rich aesthetic alongside the world's most prominent fashion and beauty designers."
In coming weeks, the work of Mexican sculptor Sergio Bustamante will be on display throughout Luxury Avenue Los Cabos. Working with materials such as resin and bronze, Bustamante's sculptures manifest the artist's playfulness resulting in whimsical dream-like designs. The 21 sculptures will be on display and for sale from now – September 30.
Luxury Avenue Los Cabos, boasting a waterfront setting at the center of the Cabo San Lucas marina, is home to designer boutiques including Ferragamo, Cartier, Fendi and Chopard. A pioneering concept in travel retail, Luxury Avenue Los Cabos along with Luxury Avenue Cancun, bring to Mexico a shopping experience previously only available on the streets of Milan, Paris, New York and Beverly Hills.
