There's Always a Surprise Waiting for You at Ex Colegio!

The Antigüo Colegio Jesuita (ex Colegio) – right up the street from Hotel Mansión Iturbe – is Pátzcuaro’s principle venue for art shows.  Although there is only one permanent show – a large and comprehensive collection of masks on the ground floor – it is the monthly, dynamic turnover of exhibitions upstairs that draws in the crowds.

They also have numerous ongoing artisan workshops.  Visit their web site for the full gamut of courses:
 
The management of the ex Colegio is quite flexible in its decisions on which exhibitions to show.  We see everything from photography to charcoal sketches to ceramics to oil paintings to steel sculpture, and more.  It looks like they will consider just about anything that has artistic value, is interesting, and will fit in the doors.  And the shows are not limited to local or even Mexican artwork.

For example, Andrew Carhartt, from the State of California in the USA, came to Pátzcuaro ten years ago.  He started taking clay lessons five or six years ago, and he will have his own salon in the ex Colegio until May 31.  Two other artists – with their own salons – will share the inauguración (opening), scheduled for 7:00 p.m., May 8, 2015.  The inauguración is open to the public.
