Cuenca Visual Arts new exhibit opens on Friday

Artist Ed Mighell

From Anchorage to Cuenca: Indigenous Tile Art

"Some might consider making tiles more a craft than a fine art. I feel that if you make your own designs, transfer that design to a plate, print that plate, you are being true to your printmaking degree. Also, when a tile from 1906 along with its design drawing auctions for over $100,000, the lines between fine art and craft blur even more." ~ Ed Mighell

Who is Edwin Mighell?

Ed is visiting Cuenca from Anchorage, Alaska.

"My mother contributed her Inupiaq genes to me and my father contributed equal amounts of English and Danish genes. My grandfather, on my dad’s side, researched our family’s European roots to the early 1600’s and I learned that there was fighting between both sides of my gene pool. My mother’s side can be traced back only to my great great grandfather and mostly contains hunters with an occasional shaman thrown in."

Come meet Ed on Friday and see his uniquely designed tile art.

The show continues through March 17.

Friday, February 16, from 5 PM to 8 PM, Vargas Machuca 3-82 y Calle Larga, Cuenca.
