Amy Kaslow Gallery | Dialogue on “Artrepreneurship and Social Change”

By East City Art Editorial Team on September 18, 2023
Los colores de mi tierra (The Colors of My Land), 21.5 x 18.75 inches, Glendy Emiliana Muj Mendoza
Talk: Thursday, September 21 from 6-7:30pm

Please join the Amy Kaslow Gallery at 7920 Norfolk Avenue in Bethesda for a Dialogue on Artrepreneurship and Social Change with Multicolores, a cooperative of indigenous Maya textile artists changing the equation for women and girls in Guatemala.

Multicolores’s Co-Founder and Creative Director, Reyna Isabel Pretzantzin Chipix will join us for this talk to share how artists, their families and their communities stabilize, and even grow from their members’ success.

Multicolores artists live and create in one of the world’s most inhospitable zones for females. But their entrepreneurship works to replace the extreme threat of femicide that many face. Through fine art textiles, they develop new skills, become masters and teach other talented women to do the same. Multicolores artists are standouts, claiming their own self-worth, that of their families and their communities.

Please join us for libations and a robust dialogue on Thursday, September 21st from 6 pm to 7:30 pm at Amy Kaslow Gallery located at 7920 Norfolk Avenue, Bethesda, MD 20814, on the corner of Norfolk Ave, and Cordell Ave. This Dialogue is part of programming for our ongoing exhibition Mother Earth: Fine Fiber Art from the Middle of the Americas.
