News, Events and Announcements

Ignacio Springs Re-opens - Here we are only one month after having Jimena’s rain to the tops of the doors in our office/kitchen and some of the rooms, and we are open for business. This is only because of the great support we have received from our good friends, who were customers first, our family and our staff. There are 5 rooms ready and we can probably get two more up and running in the next two weeks. By December, I think we should be fully restored. We wish to thank all of you who supported us by paying astronomical prices for our pepper jelly, who donated sheets, towels, labor, money, calm heads for repairing a thousand things, food for the crews and ourselves at the end of very long days, for the water pumps, the mud moving machinery, and so much more. We could never have done it alone and we are so thankful.

The other thing is that my computer and registration cards are all gone so if you have a reservation with us for now or 2010, please let me know ASAP. I have gone through the mail finding many but I know it is very possible to miss them. All our communications are back so you can call or email. With Love and Gratitude, Gary & Terry Marcer, - Terry Marcer, Terry [-at-],, 615-154-0333, Baja California Sur

The gallery will present its First Annual Small Works Show starting November 19, 2009. This show, featuring original works of art no larger than one foot square and prices no greater than $150, is the perfect opportunity to purchase those “very special” holiday gifts for family and friends. On December 3, 2009 the gallery will host a “Meet the Artists” holiday party from 5:30 to 7:30 to which the public is cordially invited. Small Works closes on January 3, 2010.

In January the gallery will celebrate the addition of four new artists with an opening party on January 7, 2010 from 5:30 to 7:30. Each artist, chosen for their diversity of style and professional quality will be featured in the main gallery and will be present at the opening party. The New Artists show will close February 1, 2010.

On February 4, 2010, the gallery will present the First Annual Todos Santos Juried Photography Show. This prestigious show will be selected by a panel of internationally known photographers from both the East Coast and West Coast of the United States. Participating photographers and the judges will be present at the opening reception on the 4th. Entry to the show will be open to all photographers who can legally sell their work in Mexico. This is an exciting opportunity for photographers to have their work acknowledged and displayed in a popular public venue.

(It is not easy running a business or charity in Mexico). While we will continue to work diligently to reduce our costs, the $3000 per month goal is still something we would like to achieve as it will give us a small financial cushion for emergencies and allow us to acquire some other much-needed equipment, personnel and services for the refuge. Thanks to ALL who are supporting us on a monthly basis and making this all possible.

Baja Dogs La Paz AC has many homes waiting in Portland, Vancouver and Calgary. The only thing standing between one of these wonderful dogs and a loving home is some kind soul that will accompany the dog north. If you are able to help please contact us. I guarantee we will make it as easy as we can for you. All the dogs are healthy and have had all their vaccines. We will pay the transport charges and have someone meet you on departure and arrival.
