Jacobo Angeles will be available to discuss his Oaxacan animal art at the Paradies Desert House Shops at Tucson International Airport Concourse B on February 22 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Mr. Angeles has attained international renown and stature as a master of the art. He learned to carve animals, using the wood from the branches of the copal tree, from his father. Mr. Angeles, and his wife Maria, have developed unique painting styles using only natural paint colors derived from fruits and vegetables, plants and tree bark, and clay and insects from their region, reflecting the symbolism of the Zapotec culture.
Their work has been exhibited throughout the United States and remains on display in various public collections as well as the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
This show is part of a series of events taking place this Spring at the Paradies Desert House Shops at Tucson International Airport.
This event is free and open to the public. Interested parties may contact the Paradies Shops, 573-4755, for a personal escort to the shops, which are located past security.
Other upcoming events include:
March 15, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.: Book signing with best selling author J.A. Jance, Desert House News and Gifts, pre-security, Concourse A.
