About the exhibit:
“Hecho a Mano” – Works of Traditional and Contemporary Art – This exhibition will present to the public, works of Mexican traditional artists, as well as art from contemporary local artists. Historically, Mexican artesania (folk art) has traditionally been made for utilitarian purposes, as well as for popular art sake. Influenced from a blend of Indigenous and European techniques and designs, artesania gained its greater popularity at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, artesanos (artists) and their work, have encountered several challenges domestically and internationally. International manufactured products, primarily those made in China, and other similar imitations have flooded the market. Yet artesanos are still creating original pieces, and their artesania work is now influencing new artists both in ideas and techniques. Don’t miss this great opportunity to see a wonderful blend of traditional and contemporary art, all in one place. We invite the public and collectors alike. Free to the public.
This exhibition is a partnership between Willo North Gallery and CALACA.
