Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

He­cho a Mano, 830 Canyon Road, 505-916-1341, he­choa­mano.org 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.
