Join printmaker and Contemporary 2017 juror, Gabriela Martinez, to draw, cut, and print your own Lotería playing cards! A popular game of chance in Mexico, Lotería uses cards rich in design that often depict religious symbols or flora and fauna specific to a region. Prints designed in this workshop will incorporate aspects of local culture. Who are the saints of the Western Slope? What are our native bird species? What do Grand Junctioners do in their spare time? Hometown quirks makeup the iconography of this Lotería.

Gabriela is the Curator of Education at the Latin American Museum of Art in Los Angeles, where she oversees the curatorial programming of the Port to Learning, an interactive educational space that provides work experience to emerging artists and museum professionals. Her work has been exhibited at the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts in China, the Modern Art Museum at Hong-Ik University in South Korea, La Passarelle Institute in Normandy, France, and at galleries and educational institutions throughout the United States.
