WEAVING | FRANCISCO BAUTISTA
Weaving | Francisco Bautista
September 1 – October 29, 2023 | CAMAS GALLERY
RECEPTION: FRIDAY SEPTEMBER, 8 FROM 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM
I am Francisco Bautista, the fourth generation Master Weaver in my family. My wife, Laura, and I were born in Teotitlán del Valle, a Zapotec village in Oaxaca, Mexico. We have always been fascinated by the infinite possibilities of crossing threads.
We use only hand-spun, hand dyed wool, and weave each of our works on a foot pedal loom. The vibrant colors you see in our weavings come from our own natural and aniline dyes. Together we work to ensure that the quality achieved by the Master Weavers of old will continue to live on in each piece we weave.
