About the Event

Alma Aragón and her husband, the celebrated Zapotec artist Saul Aragón, create some of the finest decorated wooden figures (alebrijes) in Oaxaca, Mexico. Following her popular visit to Talavera two years ago, Alma Aragón will return this week to exhibit and demonstrate her delightful work. Besides producing their captivating carvings, the couple have inspired fellow artists and won worldwide recognition for their leadership in the sustainable harvesting of copal trees, the traditional Oaxacan source of wood for carving.
