Crafting Tradition: Oaxacan Wood Carvings

Ramirez Iguana

 

October 28, 2017 – January 21, 2018

The wood carvings from the Mexican state of Oaxaca in this exhibition are part of a longstanding tradition for creating folk arts and crafts. Mexico in general and Oaxaca specifically have produced varieties of textiles, ceramics, sculptures, and other art forms for many years.
