ASA Open Studios Feb. 25 and 26 throughout Ajijic

Post by simpsca on Thu Feb 09, 2017 2:41 pm

Janice and Francisco Urzua own Aztec Studios where they specialize in original weavings designed by artist Janice and hand woven on an antique traditional wooden loom by Francisco. They are truly works of contemporary as well as traditional Mexican art. Here is Janice’s website http://www.janicekimball.com/
Janice and Francisco are located off the carretera in West Ajijic at 232 Carretera Poiniente. They are on the lake side of the highway near Yves Restaurant, facing Rancho del Oro. This is a photo of the front of their studio. Stop by and see the ancient loom and some examples of their art.
Janice and Francisco will participate in The ASA Open Studios on Feb. 25 and 26 but will be located at a friend’s home in Ajijic at Juarez 15, one block west of the Ajijic Plaza along with photographer Karyn Carpenter and silversmith Johanna Ragnhilder. ( # 14 on the Open Studios map) Tickets are 50 pesos for the whole event including shuttle buses and are available at LCS and at Diane Pearl's . For those of you not familiar with Open Studios, you can read more here and how to purchase a pass for 50 pesos with a map to all locations. https://www.facebook.com/ajijicsocietyofthearts/

Open Studios will not only feature Janice and Francisco, but will have over 50 artists showing from Ajijic to Riberas with all manner of arts and crafts to see and buy. Many will be demonstrating their techniques.

There will be a shuttle starting at 10 am at Actinver Bank in Ajijic, and going to all the outlying studios in San Antonio and Riberas.

Ticket/catalogs with photos of all the artists work are on sale at the Lake Chapala Society sales area near the front desk as well as at Diane Pearl's place downtown and from Ken Gosh of El Gallo Gallery on Guadalupe Victoria.

This is a once a year chance to see what the ASA artists have been preparing to show you!

Many of the participating artists will have their background information posted somewhere  in their studios/homes.  The catalog/ticket has full color photos of each artist's work along with their contact information.

This year, like last year, there are two shuttle vans making the rounds of studios in the areas outside of Ajijic.  The bus starts at the parking lot at Actinver Bank in Ajijic. First bus at 10:00 Saturday.  Tickets will be sold there as well as at Diane Pearl's, Gallo Gallery on Guadalupe Victoria near the Plaza, Yves restaurant and Efren Gonzalez.  The individual artists will also be selling tickets at their doors.
Only 50 pesos per ticket, and proceeds from the sale allows the Ajijic Society of the Arts to donate a substantial amount to the Childrens Art Progran at LCS.  This program is free to all children.....the future artists of lakeside.  The Open Studios event slso provides an opportunity to meet the artists, and if you find something you love......to buy it directly. Very Happy
