Mari Mariel, Artemisa, 2019, linoleum cut print, for Hoja Santa “Jardín Femenino” portfolio, Oaxaca City. Purchased for Boom Oaxaca with a grant from The McClatchy Fresno Arts Endowment of The James B. McClatchy Foundation.


Hoja Santa is an art workshop dedicated to the production, exhibition, and dissemination of women’s graphic artwork. Its mission is to make their expressions visible by generating local, national, and international interaction and recognition. The space is run by four women. It was born from the founders’ constant questioning of the lack of female-created artwork in the state capital. Therefore, they decided to create a space in Oaxaca City where collaboration, expression, and production could be fostered and shared with both the artist community and the public.
