Hanging the show
We used strong magnets to hang the prints
(from Home Depot in the USA)
and double sided tape --
first we taped a magnet to the wall,
then hung the print with a second magnet
The hanging team --
Ricky, Charley, Angelica, Pato
Afterwards we relaxed with some other artists
Beti Rivas' parents
brought fine mezcal to the opening
(Beti from Zaachila, Oaxaca,
sent the prints up to Monterrey)
Nothing like fine artisanal mezcal
for a print opening!!!
We had a good showing for the opening
Refreshments and more mezcal
