What: The AANY Arte a Mano Craft Show
When: Friday, November 14 from 5:00 to 9:00pm
Saturday and Sunday, November 15 & 16 from 10am to 7pm
Where: CANACO, Avenida Itzaes and Calle 31
For many visitors and residents of Merida alike, house tours are a way to get inspiration and ideas for their own homes. This past weekend, Fundacion BAI teamed up with AANY, AC (Amigos de los Artistas/Artesanos Nuevos de Yucatan) on their annual House Tour to highlight some of the ways AANY artworks could be used throughout the home and to help promote this weekend’s AANY Arte a Mano Craft Show.
Work by AANY artists include decorative items such as the blue glass vase pictured here, lamps, vases, decorative household items, jewelry, clothing, ceramics, whimsical folk crafts and much more. With over 75 craft artists, including 20 new participants, there is something to please every taste.
George Samuelson and Katrin Schikora were at one of the homes which featured their fabulous lights, sconces, tables and fountain. It was a great way to meet two of the artists…. but at the Arte a Mano craft show, you can meet every artist. The artists are present at the show giving attendees the opportunity to have a special connection with the artist that created the piece that they buy. You can also discuss with them ideas for your home and they can create a unique piece just for you.
Attendees from years past mark this date in their calendars as they know the quality and diversity of the crafts is the best that they will find anywhere in the Yucatán. Many do their holiday shopping at the show while others add to their growing collection of AANY crafts.
This year it will be the same weekend as Buen Fin and many of the artists will offer special promotions. And for the first time, the show will open on Friday, November 14 from 5-9 PM. The show will also be open on Saturday and Sunday, November 15 and 16, from 10 AM-7 PM. Once again the show will be held at CANACO, Avenida Itzaes and Calle 31, 3 blocks south of the Clinica de Mérida.
The AANY, AC (Amigos de los Artistas/Artesanos Nuevos de Yucatán) mission is to elevate and promote the craft arts movement in the Yucatán. All money raised by AANY is used to find and nuture artists and to promote their work through the Arte a Mano craft show and also to find year round venues for their work to be sold. All sales are retained by the artists and for many the sales at Arte a Mano represent a major source of income for the year. Most of the artists now accept Visa and Mastercard.
