Review for Feria Exposición Maestros del Arte A.C. Inc., Jalisco, , Mexico

Rating: 5 stars  

Each year, since moving to Lake Chapala 6 years ago, my husband and I have worked on the host family committee AND we have hosted 2-3 artists in our home. Both are incredibly memorable experiences, because of the artists and at least partly due to the solid organization of the Feria. We walk around the grounds of the Feria throughout the weekend in order to admire the huge selection of the most beautifully crafted Mexican traditional arts. Time and time again, the artists (most of whom are indigenous) share their wish to exhibit in this annual Feria because they are able to sell so much of their gorgeous art works, in an arrangement that costs them virtually nothing, which is unique.

Review for Feria Exposición Maestros del Arte A.C. Inc., Jalisco, , Mexico

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I have hosted artists in our home in Ajijic and also assisted the host family coordinator for the past two years, and the experience of supporting this amazing event will keep us coming back to do so every year! Top quality artists (invited only) are able to come from villages and cities all over Mexico because they have to spend the minimum amount to participate, and thus the caliber of the art is outstanding. Volunteers are extremely happy as they pick up their guests or as they provide the infrastructure to make this annual event so successful. Our only regrets are that we don't have a million bucks to purchase more of the compelling art than we do and that we don't have more room in our home to also invite visitors from outside the area to share this experience.
