Huichol Artists

In 1990 I purchased a Huichol yarn painting at a Greenwich Village Flea Market.  I was excited to find a community of artists working in the same technique I’d been developing for the past twenty years. I traveled to Mexico as a Fulbright Fellow  in 1992 to talk shop with my fellow yarn painters. Huichol artists also seemed fascinated by the coincidence of our parallel development of yarn painting.

These are some of the Huichol artists I’ve met.
