The Burro Project: Andale Bernardo
Jim Demetro created a burro sculpture with assistance from daughter Christina called Andale Bernardo. He donated it to the city of Puerto Vallarta and it was installed in the Lazaro Cardenas Park, three blocks south of the River Cuale. This new sculpture’s central figure is a life-size burro, an important part of the history of Mexico and Puerto Vallarta. And in typical fashion, the burro is resisting the efforts of two small boys to move along. One boy pushes while another offers a carrot to encourage it. A dog gets into the act, tugging on the pant leg of one of the boys.

The sculpture gets its name, Andale Bernado, from the boys urging the burro along – “Andale” – and “Bernado,” the name of the burro that posed for the sculptor. Demetro has designed this sculpture to be interactive. Kids can climb on the burro’s back to have their picture taken. (See below.)

Smaller versions of Andale Bernado (pictured below) are available for purchase.

Los Amantes

The Demetro Galeria has a lively Thursday artist reception in the         evenings. This weekly event follows a sunset sculpture walk that starts with tour guide/owner Gary Thompson at Galeria Pacifico on 174 Adalma Street at 6 pm and ends at Demetro Galeria.

Beside the chance for visitors to meet the sculptors and painters at the gallery–and, at times, help co-sculpt current public pieces–the art gallery also provides a sculpting classroom. Beginner and advanced sculpting classes are held January through March. Master sculptor and instructor Jim Demetro provides the tools, materials and live model for students of all abilities to create beautiful figurative art.
