Uriarte Talavera Gallery Exhibition

Apr 3, 2014
Uriarte Talavera, established in 1824, is one of the oldest operating businesses in Mexico. Located in the Historic city of Puebla, Uriarte Talavera specializes in pottery and ceramic artwork, often using techniques developed in the 16th Century. The artwork on display at the Sofia Quintero Center is a combination of these ancient practices and modern designs. Many traditional color schemes are used to create modern patterns and images, creating pieces that are visually stunning and physically impressive. Several works will be on display at the center between April 12th and May 24th. Additionally, some pieces are on display at the Main Library and at Maumee Valley Country Day School. All these exhibits are free of charge. The Sofia Quintero Center is excited to bring this example of Mexican Culture to the Toledo Area.
