Marin County has a unique relationship with Quetzaltenango, Guatemala – families, art and culture connect the two regions. This exhibit with the support of the local Guatemalan community demonstrates the value of building bridges of understanding, education and opportunity with respect and unity.
Barbara McVeigh is a Marin County based filmmaker, educator, writer and photographer. She journeyed to Guatemala’s mountain region Quetzaltenango last year following the border violence in order to understand first hand the plight of immigrants. Her film The Man Behind The White Guitar has just been released. Her memoir Redemption about her father’s national union strike of 1981 and her international travels in search of truth, including those in Guatemala during the early 1990s, will be available.
Gabi Mazariegos is a mother and local Marin based businesswoman. She has been driven to help local immigrant women, including the local Mayan community, for many years. As a young immigrant from Guatemala seventeen years ago she understands first hand the struggles many have endured and continue to face. She is currently working on her own memoir. A percentage of the proceeds of the Guatemalan photographs will be donated to her childhood school in Quetzaltenango.
