Friday, April 13–Sunday, April 15
9 AM–4 PM each day

Browse and shop a wonderful array of Mata Ortiz pottery, Oaxacan woodcarvings, and Zapotec rugs at the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park Mexican Art Show and Sale. Explore the beauty and influence of pottery throughout history, from mission era pottery discovered at San Antonio Missions National Historical Park to modern Mata Ortiz pottery artists. Featured artists include master potter Jorge Quintana and Oaxacan woodcarving artist Jacobo Ángeles. Jorge Quintana will be holding firing demonstrations at 11 AM on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday and Sunday, a park ranger will be giving guided programs in English at 10 AM and 2 PM, and in Spanish at 1 PM and 3 PM. Learn more about the blending of cultures that occurred in the missions, how the different indigenous bands of San Antonio found ways to adapt into a Spanish way of life, and the making of pottery as an expression of the cultural mestizaje of San Antonio.

Dr. Susan Snow, park archaeologist at San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, will also lead pottery demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday, displaying pottery artifacts found at the park. This hands-on activity will allow visitors to handle and analyze different types of pottery.
