MUSTACHES AND HUIPILS



What a great turnout we had at the opening. I have since shaved off my mustache, but for a while, everyone thought I really was Zapata, or was it Pancho?

NOW Revolución





Even Emiliano Zapata loves to wear hupils. Well, we don't really know, do we? Perhaps if women AND men were given freedom of choice to be who they are, dress how they want, live their own dreams, we might become more compassionate, more accepting of the other. What a revolutionary idea.

This and other cross-dresser images appear in NOW Revolución, an exhibition at Galeria 6 in Mineral de Pozos, November 6 to January 2, 2011. Come join us and experience works about revolution by five artists; reception is Saturday, November 6 from 1 to 6 pm. Viva la Revolucion!

ALL GOD'S CHILDREN LOVE HUIPILS!

Hypatia Lives (at Lavinia's)



Solstice Shirt for Santa Lucia, and Pat Miller looking at La Peregrina. Both mixed media, canvas and paper, collage, found objects. 



The exhibition at Casa Diana officially ended yesterday. The works are mostly at my studio for now, and the beautiful HYPATIA OF ALEXANDRIA will grace the walls of Lavinia's Frame Shop at Refugio Sur 35. They did the magnificent job of framing the works in plexiglass boxes and now will have one as a sample, una muestra, for their clientele to see. The other, larger one, SOLSTICE SHIRT, is looking for a home while my studio situation is in flux. It's too grand to be hiding behind bubble wrap. Anyone want to offer it a temporary home? It's the piece behind Pat Miller shown here.

The gallery is located at Recreo #48, Centro, in San Miguel de Allende. Gallery hours are 11 to 6 most days, and the reception is 6-8 pm. I will be showing only huipils in this exhibition; we hope you will join us July 9.

See the Change?



Welcome to the former site of Mexiattle. It seems we are all so very busy in this amazing time, creating, manifesting, transforming and trying our best to communicate. Instead of concentrating on the connection only between San Miguel and Seattle, I decided to expand the possibilities. This new endeavor will hopefully still connect these two cities that I love, but also include the many other artists of all kinds in other places, who love Mexico, textiles, art adventures, womens' issues, and exchanges of ideas about the broader global network that we weave together.
