Oaxaqueño Print Showing at UTEP

Manuel Guerra showed Mexican prints to his printmaking students at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) on March 10th, 2017.  The relief prints, many oversized, were from Oaxaca.  The colorful serigraph prints were pulled by Taller 75 Grados of Mexico City.

We have been impressed by Oaxacan printmakers ever since Krrrl and Tanya Rich both went down to Oaxaca in 2014, when the Desert Triangle was conceived.

When we formed the Desert Triangle Print Carpeta, we were impressed by what the young Oaxacan printmakers were doing, and influenced by the Oaxaca Collective carpeta.  While this was not shown to the UTEP students this time, we did buy both carpetas.

We would also like to thank Nidia Rosales Moreno , who runs Espacio Centro in Oaxaca.  Without her help we would not have many of these beautiful prints from Oaxaca.  She has written about many of these Oaxaca artists before.
