Gustavo Pérez January 5th and 6th — Noon to 5 PM
José Juan Aguilar is the son of Josefina, who has been a well-known ceramic folk artist for many decades, working in Ocotlán, a village near Oaxaca.
José Juan is continuing the tradition Josefina and her sisters began, with even more refined craftsmanship and a truly beautiful color palette. His ceramic sculptures range from clever and funny ideas to beautiful country scenes to depictions of his distinctive culture to deeply spiritual themes.
Internationally renowned ceramist
If Mexico designated “National Living Treasures,” as Japan does, Gustavo Pérez would surely be at the top of the list, for he stands alone as a Mexican ceramic artist who is internationally celebrated and admired. We have an unusual opportunity here in San Miguel to view a large selection of his work.
