An exhibition of wood carvings of Gerald Shaw is now on display at Mezgaleria, on Rio Bravo 1 (on the entry road to La Ropa Beach). Gerald Shaw, an African-American originally from Boston, has lived in Zihuatanejo for over 50 years. Like many other African-Americans of his time, Shaw came to Mexico to escape the racism in the United States and to find more creative freedom.
Shaw’s vast collection of wood carvings is inspired by his African heritage coupled with his time in Mexico. All carvings are made of wood collected from the hills of Zihuatanejo.
A must to see! Visit the gallery to see this spectacular collection.
