COLORADO SPRING, CO.- The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, in collaboration with the Consulate General of Mexico and the Mexican Cultural Center in Denver, presents an exhibition of over 100 works by contemporary Mexican ceramic artists from Tonalá, which opened Dec. 11. These ceramic artists draw upon a thousand of years of tradition. Tonalá is a small city outside of Guadalajara in the Mexican state of Jalisco, where potters fused together ancient and modern techniques to produce a regional tradition that boasts 10 different styles of finishes with rich colors and distinctive decorative details. “The remarkable execution of these works, and the beautiful imagery depicting a rich variety of real and fantastic forms show the aesthetic and technical mastery achieved by these artists, considered some of the best ceramicists in Mexico today,” said FAC Cur
