IN THE SPOTLIGHT
FROM MAYAN HANDS
The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is excited to announce it's newest member to our community, From Mayan Hands. The new gallery is located at 2006 2nd Ave South.
Headed by Robert Drapkin, From Mayan Hands imports one of a kind Mayan folk art, textiles, and handicrafts from living Mayan Indian artists from the highlands of western Guatemala. Their handmade art includes sculpture, santos, dance masks, textiles, ceramics and ceremonial objects. Due to the limited nature of the Mayan art and the fact that artisans are waning in their numbers, their offerings are truly collectibles.
New to the St.Pete area, this organization has a lot to offer and is looking forward to participating in our local art community. Be sure to check them out, as well as the inspired mural on the side of their building, adding to the wonderful collection we have in downtown St. Pete!
