KOSKO MANTA ~ Educational Exhibit + Slideshow presentation August 28th, 29th 30th, 2020 11AM-4PM The slide show will be given at 12 noon each day and attendance is on a space available basis. Contact the Gallery for scheduling at email@example.com The Shelter Cove Art Gallery will host a 3 day exhibition of Andean weavings from the Cuzco area of Peru on August 28 -30. The weavings were collected between 1968 and 1970 by Joe Collins of Briceland and Shelter Cove, who lived in the Cuzco region during those years. Most of them were bought in the city of Cuzco, and are a sample of the beautiful weaving done by the indigenous Quechua people of the high altitude valleys between Cuzco and Puno. Kosko Manta means “from Cuzco” in Quechua, the indigenous language of the area which was universally spoken by the people at that time.
The ancient city of Cuzco, which sits at an altitude of 11,000 ft., was the capitol of the Incan Empire of the 1500’s.
