Gabriel Marquez knows that with all the great art in the Borderland, there’s no reason to only celebrate it once a month.

This week he’s launching First Friday as a counterpart bookend to Last Thursdays, the monthly event that unites galleries in highlighting artists.

Marquez, one of the artists from the Casa Ortiz art gallery at 10167 Socorro Road in Socorro, said his goal was “just to offer another venue for art lovers and other creative people just to kind of come together and create a space where we can all share our creativity ’cause throughout the day to day, a lot of people are kind of focusing on the negative. But we can also just kind of let loose and explore other ideas that other people have as far as their artwork.”

Artist Gabriel Marquez is one of the artists who work out of Casa Ortiz art gallery in Socorro, Texas. He is launching First Friday to celebrate local artists.

The 38-year-old said part of the inspiration came from the six years or so he lived in Seattle.

“I moved back from Seattle, and over there, there were so many events taking place every week in different parts of the city. And so I was hoping to bring that home here, where people can explore different parts of the city at different times of the month — just so that everybody can kind of share the same amount of focus.”

Casa Ortiz’s inaugural First Friday will be from 5 to 10 p.m. and has a roster that’s special to Marquez.

“We’re going to have a lineup of artists that I’ve known for many, many years,” he said. “I graduated with them from UTEP, and it’s been about 10 years since and they’re continually creating.

“So, I wanted to invite them and showcase their work because they’re still making it and they’re still very creative. The work is very beautiful and I wanted to share that with the public.”

The artists will be presented in a group exhibition titled “Arbitrary Charm.” They are Laura Turón, Babak Tavakoli, Efren Solarzano, Jason Lucero, Miguel Valdez, Staphany Garnica, Theron Nicholson and a papier-mâché mask artist who goes by Xingaderas.

The permanent, five-member team of artists at Casa Ortiz — who in addition to Marquez are Diego “Robot” Martinez, Brian Holt, Nico Antuna Cooper and Carla Padilla — have brought innovation to an increasingly successful business model that offers visitors a diversity of activities and entertainment options.

Within the compound of adobe buildings are Casa Ortiz and Three Missions Brewery, (formerly Mission Trail Brewery), which is drawing beer-loving visitors drawn to its craft brews, most notably its pomegranate ale, and the Casa del Humo food truck, which offers ribs, brisket, sausage and brunch treats that can be enjoyed with the brewery’s drinks on wood picnic tables on the grounds.

Across the street, Casa Apodaca features the work of artist Turón, whose interactive “Paradox Pyramid” and intricately designed school bus are set up at the site. A restaurant also is planned for Casa Apodaca.

This past Saturday, guest vendors drew enough visitors to fill the large dirt parking lot behind Casa Ortiz. Some sellers were young artists, including college and university students, which the gallery helps promote.

Plans call for the Saturday Market to be held every other week, with the next one set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 15.

The artists at Casa Ortiz also take their work on the road, appearing at pop-ups and other art events across the county.

Marquez is incorporating several of these key options for First Friday.

The Casa Ortiz gallery in Socorro, Texas, features a sculpture garden.

“We’re going to have (Three Missions Brewery) available, as well as Casa del Humo, and we’re also going to have a performance. It’ll be about three hours long,” Marquez said. “It’ll be by Cuerdas, which is going to be an instrumental show.

“We’re going to have a cello player, and a vocalist and a guitarist that are going to collaborate, and they’re going to be playing all night.”

Cuerdas is set to play from 7 to 8:30 p.m., with Bards of the Revolution playing from 9 to 10 p.m.

Marquez added, “The event is free for everyone to come and enjoy and experience what we have here in Socorro, which is like a hidden gem right now.”

Marquez hopes the event grows.

“We’re continually going to be inviting artists to showcase their work here in the gallery and we’re always going to feature new upcoming and emerging artists,” he said.

“It’s going to be awesome.”

Today we’d like to introduce you to Gabriel Ortiz.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I have been involved in many aspects of art growing up as a child. I grew up in the South End / Roxbury neighborhoods of Boston in the 80’s and early 90’s which exposed me to a lot of streets cultural whether graffiti or cultural neighborhood murals. In 2001 I attained a Visual Communications Degree and that opened up a new chapter in my life as an Artisan. I worked briefly in the digital design industry until I was laid off in 2003. I stayed freelancing in digital design and working for advertising companies creating murals throughout the city.

In 2008 I was offered a full-time position in a State Agency nothing to do w/ the creative fields but the benefits where a factor considering I was on my 2nd child. Around this time my wife had the misfortune of being laid off and I was working in every aspect I had time for to makes ends meet. Still employed w/ the State Agency I picked up 2 part-time jobs on top of freelancing to make sure we stayed afloat. I always had an interest in Photography but never wanted to invest in the expensive equipment.

In 2010 I finally decided to purchase a good entry level DSLR and a few lights and decided to focus specifically on Photography as my part-time job. Working multiple PT jobs was not in my cards anymore so I set up a small home studio and for 2 years shot everyone who wanted free photographs. I officially established G. Ortiz Photography in 2014. Fast forward to 2018 I now have 3 children and I’m still employed full time at the State Agency while photographing part-time under G. Ortiz Photography. I have been fortunate to have been published internationally and asked to create how to’s on editing techniques for various photography sites. I love stylistic portrait photography and have been lucky to photograph beautiful weddings throughout New England and beyond.

Currently, I have been focusing on Fine Art Portrait work for additional publications and offering Headshot Services for individuals or cooperate groups. Here in New England Wedding Season is short so I try to stay busy throughout the year. Investing in myself 8 years ago was the best selfish financial decision I could have done at the moment but it paid off. I feel this was in my cards, everything I was involved in pre-photography ended up developing my style.

Mural work gave me a sense of color theory, digital editing gave me experience in today’s top photography editing programs. It’s weird how I learned backwards when in theory normally a photographer learns to use a camera, then edit the image. Learning the editing process then the camera controls has been a unique and awesome method for me. I know what I want prior to looking through the viewfinder so I learned to shoot and produce as close to my for seen image I can get within the camera’s capabilities. Its been an awesome ride and who knows, maybe in a few years Photography would be my one position of employment and a new chapter in my ongoing series.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has had its rough times. Investing in equipment when every dollar counted was tough but my wife believed in me. Photography is a very saturated field and Boston is a very small city. Competition is high so you always have to stay on your A game and produce the best you can produce. As I grew my brand I started to realize the difference in moral and financial support. I learned not to be bothered by friends and family expecting free or discounted work.

I learned at an awesome workshop that family and friends, for the most part, won’t see you as a business, your just a family member or friend good at photography. They may promote you to others but when it comes to them they just see it differently. Learn how to promote yourself and your value and your targeted client base will come.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about G. Ortiz Photography – what should we know?
I consider myself a Stylistic Portrait and Wedding Photographer. My goal is to create images that touch your soul and tell a story by themselves. I love Portrait Photography especially conceptual projects and working w/ a team of creative individuals. I love to create themes and produce photo series.

I bring that same energy into the Wedding Season when I am blessed to capture beautiful weddings. My influences prior to photography sets me apart from the average photographer. All the elements of street culture and color theory play a heavy role in my conceptual projects. I love edgy organic feelings and earthy tones which I have been told are very prominent in my portraits.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I want to establish myself as an individual styled photographer. In today’s era with social media, trends dictate what is good photography and not. I’m creative enough not to follow trends and stubborn enough to believe I can make it my own way.

The Persistence of Chaos by Guo O Dong

"Some of the world’s greatest artworks are known for their elaborate backstory or complex history, but not many are actively dangerous to those who own them. ‘The Persistence of Chaos’ might be an exception. Created by internet artist Guo O Dong, this piece of art is an ordinary laptop filled with six of the world’s most dangerous pieces of malware. It’s perfectly safe — as long you don’t connect to your Wi-Fi or plug in a USB

Artist Guo O Dong says the intention behind the laptop was to make physical the abstract threats posed by the digital world.

“We have this fantasy that things that happen in computers can’t actually affect us, but this is absurd,” says Guo. “Weaponized viruses that affect power grids or public infrastructure can cause direct harm.”

The six viruses in the laptop (a 10.2-inch Samsung NC10-14GB) were chosen for the magnitude of economic damage they’ve caused."

Three Missions Brewery, formerly the Mission Trail Brewery, has a pomegranate ale that is a favorite among visitors.

The artists will be presented in a group exhibition titled “Arbitrary Charm.” They are Laura Turón, Babak Tavakoli, Efren Solarzano, Jason Lucero, Miguel Valdez, Staphany Garnica, Theron Nicholson and a papier-mâché mask artist who goes by Xingaderas.

The permanent, five-member team of artists at Casa Ortiz — who in addition to Marquez are Diego “Robot” Martinez, Brian Holt, Nico Antuna Cooper and Carla Padilla — have brought innovation to an increasingly successful business model that offers visitors a diversity of activities and entertainment options.

No One Like Our God (by Gabriel Ortiz)

Although the whole hitch with Sveta's exit at the bus stop lasted, in fact, some half a minute, but still, This. Did not go unnoticed neither for Irka, nor for the driver, nor for the rest of the passengers. Damn, I fell at all. How shook.

In simple, wrinkled trousers and shirts. In the evening I was no longer so free with Sergei, I did not walk for a long time, I dodged kisses. Teenage girls immediately drew attention to him. As, however, our guys, too, noticed the threat, tried to talk to him like a man, they say: these are our females, don't you fucking. Distract their attention to yourself.
