Two local artists, Chris Small and BJ Hardin, are currently displaying their work at Elegante Restaurante in Ajijic. Both are members of the Ajijic Society of the Arts (ASA).

Small creates abstracts using acrylic paint in many layers to achieve the interesting look she is known for. The giclee prints of her work are a technique that creates a highly sophisticated reproduction of the original.
