Artist Corner

2019 Tamale Express Artist Corner


The 2019 Tamale Express Tamale Artist Corner is an outdoor artist show open to artists of all persuasions who produce original, hand-made, fine art and craftsmanship, and we welcome in particular contemporary makers who embody the best of the Arts and Crafts movement aesthetic.  There will be paintings, photography, fine jewelry, textile rugs & quilts, hand thrown ceramics, stained glass, original paintings, blown & fused glass sculptures, and more. 


For 5 years, The Dark Horse Performing Arts Foundation Tamale Festivals have celebrated both visual and performing arts in the Southern California region. We believe art has the power to connect communities, cultivate new artistic talent and create a better quality of life for all through cultural enrichment.

On April 27, 2019, The Tamale Express Tamale Festival will fill the Southern California Railway Museum in Perris.  Thousands of attendees will come to view and purchase artwork, enjoy music and dance performances, and enjoy regional cuisine from local and regional eateries.
