Gallery, Workshops and Special Event Services at La Palapa

Where Food is Art and Art is Food 

 If you're in the Pittsburgh area, you can see for yourself what happens when a space is co-created to reflect the belief that food is an art and art is food for the soul. You can find many of my beautiful things on display and for sale on the walls and shelves throughout La Palapa Traditional Mexican  Kitchen while enjoying offerings from a myriad of choices found in their food and drink menus. You can make purchases there even if I am not present, simply ask the manager for assistance. I'm available to meet with you by appointment with scheduling at your convenience, and can bring additional items for you to view in almost any category of work. You can text me or leave voicemail at 412.422.9984 at any time with questions or special requests.

In creative collaboration with my hosts, owners Jesus Martinez, Chef Jose Luis Navarette, and their staff, we create customized and unique workshop and event experiences for you in a variety of ways, for budgets large or small. We've co-hosted celebrations, commemorations for Dia de los Muertos, school field trips, corporate gatherings and meetings, walking tours, and discussion of folk art forms, history and technique with Q & A, figure painting, nicho creation, jewelry making, events with visiting artists, and live performances with house musicians Mariachi Internacional de Pittsburgh and Trio Nova. La Palapa also offers off site catering services and regularly hosts a variety of mezcal, tequila and wine tasting events.
