President's Message

Dear members,

Oscar Wilde’s novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray,’ centers on a man’s pursuit of eternal youth. It’s an intoxicating quest that ends horribly.

The FCCJ has come to covet youth as well. We’ve made it easier than ever for people under 40 to join and have held special events specifically aimed at recruiting them.

The Day of the Dead is a Mexican tradition celebrated from October 31 to November 2 in which our deceased are honored. This conception of celebrating death originated as a syncretism between the Catholic celebrations (from Spain) and indigenous celebrations (from Mexico), a mixture of both cultures. For the second year in a row, we will exhibit our work at FCCJ continuing to show the concept of the Catrina from our very particular point of view. With the growing popularity of Catrina and the festivities of the Day of the Dead, we invited artists from Mexico, the United States and Japan, to join our exhibition under the title: Catrinas Around the World 2023.

Artists in this exhibition include Mario Marín, Catrinas Contemporaneas, Naomi Cervantes from Mexico; La Catrina Andante (Livette Ruvalcaba), Evelyn Trejo, Gus Mejía, el Charro Gonzalez and Black Unicornio in the United States, and with Rodrigo Reyes Martin, Nahomi Moriyama, Chiaki Iizaka and Lizeth R. Marin who based in Japan.
