Martinez Fiesta

“Fiesta” by Sandra Martinez ©2014, woven by Jacobo Martinez.

In celebration of their 20th season, Martinez Studio has re-hung the gallery with exciting new work for a fiesta on July 12, 3 – 7 pm.

Twenty new works on paper by Sandra have just been framed and three new series of weavings, including vibrant new pillows, have been installed in time for the party.

Sandra’s latest series “Juego,” a checkerboard treatment of her iconic figures, is presented as both studies for weaving and the resulting tapestries. The colors are playful and mix well with Wence’s geometric pattern pieces.

“I have always been on the lookout for young weavers to mentor and finally found them right in the family!” says Wence. “Our daughter Malena and her husband Jacobo are now both weaving with us. Their attention to detail, and ability to achieve graceful curves has both Sandra and I amazed. To be in a position to work with them and deepen our family legacy is a great joy.”

Work woven by Malena and Jacobo is at a lower price point than those woven by Wence, so it also provides a nice entry point to the Martinez Studio, when Wence’s weavings are garnering national attention.

Martinez Studio, open 11 am – 4 pm daily (except Tuesday) is located at 5877 Highway 57, one mile south of Jacksonport. For more information call 920.823.2154 or visit martinezstudio.com.
