Grand Opening of Hecho a Mano
March 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for the grand opening of Hecho a Mano! Hecho a Mano is handmade. We support artists making work at the intersection of innovation and tradition. Featuring contemporary and historical prints, ceramics and jewelry from across the Americas.
Carlos Mérida: Carnival in Mexico is the inaugural exhibition at Hecho a Mano, featuring ten lithographs from Mérida’s eponymous 1940 portfolio. The Guatemalan-born artist spent the majority of his life in Mexico and is known primarily for his geometric canvas works fusing European Modernism with forms and subjects specific to the Americas. Carnival in Mexico was created before Mérida’s more well-known period and is part ethnography, part illustrative, exploring the variety of costumes donned during the pre-Lenten Carnival.
