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.
Your website has captured so many beautiful and potentially unknown images, great job making this art available to be appreciated worldwide. This is just a scratch on the surface, but a vital one, of what is happening in Mexico, and specifically Oaxaca its heart right now. Much love to all those suffering in the devistation of these past quakes.ReplyDelete
