From XIPE PROJECTS: Greetings Friends!
This is a quick note to remind you that on Thursday, November 7, between 3PM and 9PM, Xipe Projects will host the Seri/Comca’ac Women’s Artisans Cooperative from Desemboque and Punta Chueca on the Sea of Cortez in Sonora, Mexico.
The talented artisans will be singing, dancing, and demonstrating their craft at the Xipe Projects exhibition hall and works on sale will include traditional coiled baskets, ironwood carvings, and shell and fishbone necklaces made from native materials gathered in the Sonoran Desert and the Sea of Cortez.
Confirmed participants include Ms. Angelita Torres, the iconic “Angel Woman” featured in the photography of Graciela Iturbide and Mr. Abe Sanchez, an artist and promoter for the Revitalization of Indigenous Arts and Foods.
Guest speakers include Mike Gray and Jim Lindell and there will be an image presentation designed by Deborah Small.
Join us for a unique cultural experience and the opportunity to purchase these crafts directly from the artists themselves.
The event is scheduled to take place at the Xipe Projects gallery at 15121 Graham Street, Suite 103, Huntington Beach, CA. Accepted forms of payment will be cash and personal check. All proceeds directly support the Women’s Artisans Cooperative.
Refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres will be served and parking and admission are free.
