The Ambos Lados adventure has been more than exhibitions. In the summer of 2019, three of us --Manuel Guerra, Marco Sanchez, and Karl Whitaker -- toured Mexico from Guadalajara to Oaxaca, meeting Ambos Lados printamakers, and other print maestros, along the way. What a humbling trip!
During the Santa Fe exhibition, the members of Horned Toad Prints of El Paso, run by Manuel Guerra, were well received by all the extraordinary printmaking/art institutions of New Mexico.

Meanwhile, I don't get enough news from Oaxaca, but the printmaking community is very active. Oaxaca, in my opinion, is the Mecca of printmaking worldwide.
