20140523 Folk-Art-Group-ShotQuinta Mazatlan invites the public to explore “Folk Art Room—Through the Eyes of Ann Moore.” The exhibit recently opened at Quinta Mazatlan and features over 1,400 pieces of art from Moore’s private collection. Long-time McAllen native, art collector Moore has amassed Mexican folk art for over 40 year providing a dazzling experience of color and hand work that is fast disappearing.

Exhibit designers Erren Seale and Bob Simpson noted that the collection’s acquisitions range from across Mexico, coming from as far away as Oaxaca, Guerrero and Michoacan. Other pieces sprinkled from Africa, Indonesia, Peru, Guatemala and other countries are included in the exhibit. Moore’s collection creates a bridge to various cultures, traditions and ways of life through folk art.

Colleen Hook, Quinta Mazatlan manager, said, “This is an incredible gift from Ann and displays her talents and tastes, as well as the talents of hundreds of other artists.” She said that a hundred donors brought this exhibit to life and will now be enjoyed annually by tens of thousands.

Quinta Mazatlan is open Tuesday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursdays until dark. For more information, visit www.quintamazatlan.com
