Gabriela Morac, Genesis (2018), linocut, gold and silver leaf


Hecho a Mano, 830 Canyon Road, 505-916-1341, The Mexican state of Oaxaca has long been a center for art. Stemming from the legacy of its popular artists, such as Rufino Tamayo and Francisco Toledo, the region now has a thriving printmakin­g scene. In times of upheaval — such as in 2006, when a teachers’ strike led to a seven-month conflict between civilians and the military — printmakin­g has served as a tool and symbol of Oaxacan resistance. The exhibition Grabados Oaxaqueños highlights the works of six contempora­ry artists whose work exemplifie­s the vibrancy and vitality of Oaxacan printmakin­g: Alfonso Barrera, Alberto Cruz, Mirel Fraga, Daniel Hernández, Miguel Martinez, and Gabriela Morac. The show opens with a 6 p.m. reception on Friday, Oct. 25, and is on view through Nov. 24.
