Set for Dec. 4-6 in Merida, the long awaited 13th (yes, you read that correctly!) ARTE A MANO holiday craft show is almost here.
The AANY team scoured the three states of the Yucatan Peninsula and found 17 wonderful new craft artists to introduce in this year’s exhibition.(AANY stands for Amigos de los Artistas/Artesanos Nuevos de Yucatan.)
For those who have attended in the past, there will be many familiar exhibitors, most with new work.
The grand total of 80 exhibitors makes this year’s free show by far the biggest ever, with an amazing array of craft art for your holiday gift giving, home decorating, and personal whims and wants.
Among the new exhibiting artists is Andrés Vázquez Paloma, presenting his award-winning bas relief carvings depicting village scenes. The detailed work of this self-taught artist is extraordinary.
Alfredo Poot Dzib will present his highly decorated jicara items, from lamps to tortilleras to a large variety of decorative items.
Rosalinda Cauich Ramírez will present her charming baskets and woven animals made of bejuco and Maria Esther Uitzil will exhibit exquisite woven shawls in many sizes and colors.
