Interweaving Cities Through Craft Traditions: Santa Fe, New Mexico and Trinidad, Cuba

June 21 - July 27, Opening Reception June 21, 5-7pm

The exhibit will present four colorful collaborative embroidered works that reference rich traditions. Two were made by Julia Gomez of Santa Fe and Zobeida Gonzalez of Trinidad, Cuba, and two by Barbara Romero Alba of Santa Fe and Obdulia Gonzalez of Trinidad, Cuba. The four artisans and their colleagues carry on traditions that date from the 19th century. Other work to be shown includes pieces by each of the four collaborators and members of Urdimbre in Trinidad and the Colcha Club of Santa Fe. The artisans were brought together through the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. This global program of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization involves 350 cities around the world. Santa Fe was the first city in the United States to be appointed and has been a member since 2005. Trinidad was appointed in 2019.
