Oaxaca in October


Before our workshop started a few of us went off on a little adventure to Josefina Aguilar's home and studio. We all came home with some of her wonderful ceramic pieces. She is now blind so it was even more special to get a chance visit her home and give our respects and appreciation for her lovely art.


Some of the pieces that came home with me.


We visited the Rudolfo  Morales museum again and saw some of his murals and collage work.


A wonderful lunch with local squash blossoms at Jacoba's on our way home.


A stop by the small weaving village of San Tomas was a new adventure full of color and local women weavers selling their wares.


The next day we took a trip to town to visit the Stamp Museum (MUFI) in Oaxaca. They had an interesting show of letterboxes that were created by local artists.



And fun photo op pieces that we had to try out.


Our next stop was the Graphic Arts museum with wonderful bird watercolors by an early scientist-adventurer documenting birds and wildlife in the New World.


We had time to visit many of the colorful markets that were filled with flowers and treats in preparation for the Dia de los Muertos celebrations.
