El antiQuario Brings Famous Artists to Texas


Come join us in central Texas this March 27 through April 6th, 2003 for the semi-annual Warrenton - Round Top antiques show, and for a fantastic selection of goodies from Mexico. This year we will be heading up from Guadalajara with old trunks, vintage pottery, spurs and ropes, silver, retablos, primitives and a heap of other treasures. Don't miss our great selection of 100% cotton clothing by designer Alejandro Julian Nunez as well.

For lovers of Mexican folk art, we have a very special treat lined up for the show. A few of the country's master potters will be joining us this spring, and plan on setting up a kiln and working on site (weather permitting)!

Martin Ibarra, of Tlajomulco, will be showing his fabulous burnished pottery virgens and spheres. Cuca and Daniela, also of the Ibarra Studio, are bringing their own whimsical pre-hispanic style jaguars, turtles and dogs.

We are pleased to announce that master artist Juan Francisco Basulto, of Tonala, will also be accompanying our group. Francisco's burnished wares are a combination of traditional ideas fused with modern art. In our opinion, he is currently one of the most cutting edge potters in Mexico.

We will have a wide array of information available on our other advertisers as well, including for manufacturers of rustic furniture, Talavera tiles, custom candles, iron and more. Dealers wishing to place orders for their shops are encouraged to come by to see our samples.

The El antiQuario booth will be in our usual location, in Warrenton's Bar W field, right next to the parking lot. The field is located 1/4 of a mile north from the heart of Warrenton, and 8 miles from Round Top, on Highway 237.

For those not familiar with the area, the show is located half way between Austin and Houston (about 70 miles from both cities). For more detailed directions on how to get there, or more information in general, drop us an e-mail.

We are looking forward to seeing all our friends there this spring. Hope you can make it!

Best Regards,

Roberto Alvarado and Suzy Kirchberg
