The Summer is winding down and although we still have about 6 weeks left of steamy possibly stormy days ahead in Todos Santos, I am busy setting up a fun musical ride for the upcoming tourist and beautiful weather season here in Baja Sur. Lots of fun dates to share, and also some news.

I will be presenting a new recurring music series in collaboration with Oystera in Todos Santos this year. Starting in November 2022, once or twice a month we will have a Singer Songwriters Night, as well as special stand alone concerts, down in the beautiful garden on Saturday evenings.

This establishment by Santa Terra is top notch, they bring a lot of beauty and fun to our community, and are always curating fresh and fun events for everyone along with their fine dining and cocktail specialties. Come for a great meal with friends and family, then settle in for a couple hours of sweet original music down in the garden featuring both local and International artists.

Lost Days of Summer – FOUND at Galeria Militar Todos Santos – New Art by Mark Gabriel

Lost Days of Summer – FOUND at Galeria Militar Todos Santos – New Art by Mark Gabriel

Art buffs, Summer buffs, Mark Gabriel buffs, this is your jam.
I recently had the joy of attending the new art show opening at Galleria Militar in Todos Santos, Baja Sur, Mexico.

It was a brilliant evening showcasing the new exhibit, LOST DAYS OF SUMMER by the prolific Gabriel.

I will share some photos of the work and event but first, more about the artist.

Mark Gabriel

Mark Gabriel is an award-winning multi-media artist who began his career in the underground comics and fanzine world while bashing away at his bass guitar in punk bands at night. Mark earned his Honors Baccalaureate Degree in Illustration from Sheridan College, graduating top of his class. He continued to developed his signature style working in book and magazine illustration before a career in film widened Mark’s palette. As muralist, scenic and storyboard artist, concept illustrator and set designer, Gabriel eventually found a new voice in Production Design, honing his visual story-telling skills over two decades in film and television.

At the threshold of the desert and the sea, Mark Gabriel has tapped into the primal energy of the desert bringing an essential raw power to his art. A series of works called Marine Salvage Rights – where small scavenged pieces of driftwood become sculptural paintings of Flying Whales and Ranchera Musicians, acts as a gateway to large scale renditions of his subjects on stretched canvas and wood panels.

First Blush

Painting subjects the artist describes as dreamscapes inspired by ghosts of the desert and the movements of celestial bodies, these desert and seascapes are inhabited by mythical creature mash-ups of revolutionaries and birds, ranchero cowboys, musicians and stray dogs, as well as the flying “dream whales” of which he has become known. These characters all have stories – they occupy familiar yet exotic geography – they dance, they play, they fight, they love –  and they will reveal their secrets if you lean in. Look again, and again as these creatures take form and celebrate the light.

Mark paints mostly with knife. As he scrape’s and slashes the paint – one can see how essential that energy is to his work. Acrylic is also good because it’s fast. The paint goes on thick and wild, then dabs of prevision. And if paint isn’t sufficient to the story, Gabriel employs ink, or mono-print, chalk and charcoal and oil stick. Some of the work requires collage and mixing of all of the above.

Lost Days of Summer
On View
November 11, 2021 – December 31, 2021

Lost Days of Summer is a the continuation of last years Bye Gone Days x Retro Tropical Jetset series by Mark Gabriel, featuring socialites of the tropical jet-set.


This new series deconstructs the memories we have of the days gone past and brings it to present day.  These moments will live on and bring life to a whole new cast of characters; like the Starlets in Freefall, the Phoenix Divers… or the boys of summer. 

“My interest in the tropical socialite has much to do with half-forgotten memories, the patina’d mirror of our own experience, blurs together with discolored family photos, mingles with glamorous magazine spreads and the silver screen, mixes with rat pack crooners like cocktails made in silver shakers. A dissociative fugue of champagne goblets and Frank Sinatra.”

“She is all possibility. She is human achievement. She is strong. She is free. I’m not sure though, if she is the Phoenix, or the Phoenix is me.”

A few photos of the opening evening, beautiful art, live music (Mehry Iris Eslaminia!), in a lively setting with indoor viewing in the Gallery and an outdoor plaza area with festivities. The event drew a very large crowd of pleasant collectors, fans, and friends.

Now go check it all out!

Jenelle Aubade Friday Night Live Show

During Covid I have been laying low in real-time life trying to keep safe with everyone. To keep the music alive I stream a sunset hour show from my home in Todos Santos, Baja Sur, Mexico, every week. Some of my local musician friends join me when they can, past shows have included Lucas Bennett, Zoe Dearborn, Angelina Wolf, and Alf Ea. We are keeping it low key, intimate, and fun. To tune in to the live event on Friday nights (8pm MT) go to or to watch the episodes later or get caught up on the series you can do so on FB or on YouTube at – we do not ask for propina although I do split tips with my guest performers if they come in, and with great thanks, everything helps right now as we all adjust to the current way of life in regards to playing live and how we connect with our arts.  I am still making beads every day, melting glass and making music is where you will find me!

Enjoy the entire music series plus prequels in a binge any time at
– but know that when you tune in to the live show it makes our performance better and more interesting so super thanks to those that do lend your energy and support!

For those far away who would like little bits of Todos Santos in your life I post some Todos Santos Photos on occasion on Instagram at

Best, stay safe, keep in touch. Comment here on the blog,  and hook up with me on social media, let’s keep connected. Jenelle

Get your tickets now at Tecolote Bookstore for this great new play. Dinner Theatre available on Friday and Saturday shows. Sunday matinee at 4pm, show only.

Join the event on Facebook at

“When Greater Tuna, a story set in a fictional Texas town called Tuna, was first produced in Austin, Texas in 1981, even the snooty New Yorker Magazine called it “sharp, satiric & funny.” Thirty-five years later, the show is one of the most often produced shows in the history of the American theatre.

You can get tickets at the door but they cost more.  – 300 pesos instead of 250 pesos/   You have to prepay dinner, since we have to give numbers to the chef ( Dany) no later than the morning of the show.”

Support our local community theater!  “If you love theater, and spend any time in Baja California Sur, we are here to keep you connected to the plays and community events at Teatro Luna Azul, including Live Theater & Music , Movies, and much more.”
Daniel Caracas has several fun parts in this play, pretty stoked, see you there =)
