Once again it is time for us to celebrate a very special coming together of Mexican Artisans. This will be the 12th annual gathering of Mexican Folk artists and Indigenous Artisans, an Invitational Art Exhibition which is held every November in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico. Original Friends Dolls will participate by exhibiting our beautiful OOAK (one of a kind) ClothArt dolls.
This year the event will be held at once again, at the Chapala Yacht Club located along Paseo Ramon Corona, in the town of Chapala. There will be over 65 different artists who hail from all over Mexico. There really isn't anything quite like it, with attendees coming from all over the world to obtain some of the works of art whose unique techniques are slowly being lost to the power of cheaper mass produced products made in China.
For more information, click the link above, and be sure to attend if you are anywhere near Chapala from November 15 - 17, 2013!
