WORKSHOP IN MOUNTAINAIR
Juliana Kirwin gave a print workshop in Mountainair, New Mexico, while we were showing Ambos Lados in Silver City.

We bought a print from Dairen Fernandez of Cuba, as he was in Santa Fe for the Clandestina event (Cuba's first independent fashion label) at the International Folk Art Market.
We bought this print from Dairen Fernandez of Havana
Dairen Fernandez is not in Ambos Lados, but he did participate with Octavio Irving (who is in Ambos Lados), and 3 other Cubans, in the LA Havana portfolio. The Cuban artists made their prints at Self Help Graphics in LA, and the US artists made their prints in the Taller Experimental de Grafica in Havana. Stuart Ashman (current director of IFAM in Santa Fe) was instrumental in putting together this portfolio.
