~ In the Tell Me a Story - Online Art Exhibit ~
Artist Karen J. Schmitz highlights the work of activists Homero Gomez and Raul Hernandez in this exquisitely layered mixed media piece.
In January 2020, Gomez and Hernandez were murdered in Michoacan, Mexico. These men were guardians and activists protecting Monarch Butterflies habitats from illegal logging of the pine and fir trees in which they hibernate in the Ocampo sanctuary.
The endangered Monarch is the longest migrating insect traveling from Canada and North America upward of 3,000 miles to overwinter in southwestern Mexico.
"For the Monarchs Activists: Homero Gomez & Raul Hernandez" by Karen Schmitz,
mixed media (acrylic, graphite, etc), $600, 28 x 22"
