TALK: ROSES & REVELATIONS:

Homage to the Virgin of Guadalupe by Mexican Textile Artists
Presented by Linda Hanna

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 5 PM

MX$90 (M) MX$130 (NM)

Linda Hanna, a long-time member of the Lending Library and well-known collaborator with many of the local artisans in and around Oaxaca, has been working for over a year with other notable people to arrange a major gallery show featuring textile artists in fifty- two communities from eight different Mexican states.

The exhibit, called “Roses & Revelations”, interweaves textile art with the religious sensibilities of the Mexican people, using Our Lady of Guadalupe (the nation’s patroness) as a template. Just as the image of the Virgin Mother was imprinted on the rough cloak of a poor Indian, Juan Diego, in December of 1531, artists from around the country have incorporated imagery of the Virgin into various garments which will be on display in the exhibit.

Come hear Linda talk about this journey that culminated in an exhibit that opened in December and will be on view until mid-March at the Museo Estatal Arte Popular de Oaxaca (MEAPO) in San Bartolo Coyotepec.
