Once again an overflow crowd found its way into the City Park across from the Police Station on Benito Juarez street to attend the annual Art and Crafts Show organized by Victor Aleman.

Well known, acclaimed, artists and craftsmen and women presented a variety of unique, interesting and attractive work. Both local and visiting artists were represented.

Among the participants were 3 art teachers from the local Cultural Center: Ricardo Arenas presenting a variety of small, intricately designed glass sculpture; Ilva Carrillo offering an outstanding display of decorative tin work framing mirrors, boxes, etc.; Nidia Pino displaying a wide selection of attractive native pottery. Cornelia Felix’s exquisite hand beaded jewelry and earrings, along with her lovely hand painted shells, were instant crowd pleasers. The unique pottery of Dominga Toribio was much sought after.

Victor Aleman, the internationally acclaimed spray paint artist and RV muralist attracted crowds with his on-the-spot paintings, by request, in 5 or 6 minutes as well as displaying a selection of his beautiful tiles.
