Celebrating TinteMaya is an evening to explore the power of tradition, creativity, and cooperatives in social revolution. Come see works by local Bellevue artist Crystal Ma and Mayan weaver Amalia Tay, president of the TinteMaya women’s weaving cooperative in Guatemala. TinteMaya creates sustainable sources of income for the women of the group and empowers them in an otherwise patriarchal society.

Items including paintings, posters, wall hangings, hand woven blankets, handmade art, baked goods, and jewelry will be auctioned, raffled, and sold. All proceeds from this event will enable TinteMaya to develop a Culture + Art Café in their shop. Here, visitors will be invited to linger with a cup of Guatemalan coffee and learn about local weaving and natural dye traditions and Mayan culture. Through workshops, they will collaborate with the women in creating art that merges local tradition with the visitors’ own inspiration. The space will spark cross-cultural dialogue and understanding.

There is no entrance fee required, although the suggested donation is $5.
