This exhibition features a selection of works from The John Gaston Fairey Collection of Mexican Folk Art, donated by John Gaston Fairey to the Art Museum of Southeast Texas in memory of his parents. Professor Fairey’s collection of over 450 pieces of Mexican Folk Art, including textiles, baskets and ceramics were primarily sourced over approximately 30 years while on plant hunting expeditions in the interior of Mexico. The collection contains works by several recognized and published artists, including Carlomagno Pedro Martínez and Angélica Vasquez Cruz.
