Oaxaca pop-up

We showed the first 28 prints at a pop-up exhibition in Oaxaca -- on Nov 1st, 2015, the Day of the Dead -- at Process Ediciones:

We had a brisk turnout,
with visitors from all over the world

I went to a presentation by Oaxacan printmaker Edith Chavez at the Espacio Centro on Friday, November 6th.  

She was exhibiting the work she did at Taller Libre, where they produced the edition of Francisco Delgado.  Nidia Rosales Moreno runs the Espacio Centro, and is also the subject of Pavel Acevedo's print.

Update:  Edith Chavez is showing in the "Sus Voices -- Women Printmakers from Mexico" exhibition,  from February 5 – March 26, 2016 at HighPoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Curated by Maria Cristina Tavera, Sus Voces: Women Printmakers from Mexico features a variety of prints by nine artists living and working in Mexico: Adriana Calatayud Morán, Rossana Cervantes Vasquez, Edith Chávez, Mercedes López Calvo, Diana Morales Galicia, Paulina Olascoaga Chávez, Daniela Ramirez, Jimena Ramos, and América Rodriguez.

Later I bought a the large print of the girl blowing bubbles, from "Kabrito" (Alan Altamirano) of Taller la Chicharra -- they had a booth at the Book Fair.
