The 2014 Guest Gallery Featured International Artist Porfirio Gutierrez
The Mexican Village of Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca, gave Porfirio Gutierrez his start in life. Porfirio, in turn, is determined to give Teotitlan its future. As the center of Zapotec culture and weaving traditions, Teotitlan produces many of the hand loomed wool goods commonly associated with Mexican exports. While the tourist industry supports weavers in the village, it is also the source of environmental and economic conflicts that keep the community from advancing its health and well-being.
With an eye to the future and roots firmly in the past, Porfirio is blending Zapotec-inspired patterns with his eco-conscious sensibility, producing striking tapestries and other fine weavings. The range of styles he achieves in his work brings new meaning to the idea of organic design: both his materials and his methods have evolved to blend effortlessly with contemporary California style…Read More about this artist by visiting the Sedona Arts Festival Website.
