17th Annual Feria Maestros del Arte
November 9-11, 2018

Past Artisans Who Have Shown at the Feria

Feria Exposición Maestros del Arte AC Inc. is non-profit in both Mexico and the US. Held yearly at Lake Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico, this art show promotes the rapidly disappearing folk and indigenous art (artensania) of Mexico. Artists are invited from all corners of Mexico based on the following criteria:

  • Quality of their work,
  • Has their art been passed down generation to generation,
  • Does the artist use "natural" pigments/materials as was done in the past, or
  • Are they an "undiscovered" artist who is worthy of recognition for his/her work.
  • All art must be made totally handmade by the artist.

You can help these artists and the Feria with your contribution. Please see our Patron page.
Help us keep Mexico's legacy of folk and indigenous art alive.
