FOTM Artist Spotlight on Porfirio Gutierrez

Focus on the Masters is pleased to shine the Artist Spotlight on Porfirio Gutierrez, an extraordinary weaver who combines ancient Zapotec traditions with a modern sensibility.Growing up in Teotitlan del Valle in Oaxaca, Mexico, he was immersed in the ancient art of weaving. Using natural dyes and employing traditional designs, he and his family, it can be said, are making certain that the artistic and spiritual values of his ancestors continue to be known and admired around the world. Through August, he is featured as a Guest Studio Artist at the Carnegie Museum in Oxnard.
