Mission Statement
The mission of ALAS, a multi-cultural, bilingual, woman-run organization, is to enrich the quality of life in the Lake Patzcuaro region, especially that of women and girls, by providing an art center where regional and international creative activities illuminate, educate and entertain.
ALAS, the Women´s Co-op will accomplish this mission through:
Workshops and Classes, Exhibitions, Arts programs for youth, Opportunities for local artists, Dance, music, film and other arts programming
ALAS, the women-run, multicultural, bilingual organization is now open on Dr. Coss #12, across the street from the Hotel Casa Encantada, and about a half block south of Plaza Grande in Patzcuaro. 
The exhibit hours are Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. 
In addition, art classes, workshops and other activities are being held at the ALAS Center during the week.

ALAS is excited to have an exhibit with artist, Vatche Geuvdjelian. Vatche has lived in Patzcuaro since 1982, but has a very interesting history as he was born in Ethiopia and has lived, studied and traveled in a variety of countries.

His work has been shown in Los Angeles, Toronto, Boston, England and France, while exhibiting yearly in Morelia and Patzcuaro. He will show his latest oil paintings in Los Angeles in September. The “Sublimation Prints” on display at ALAS, are a result of a decade of experimentation on Photoshop where Vatche builds digital layers on top of scanned watercolors.

We hope you will join us and meet Vatche at his art opening on May 31st at ALAS, Dr. Coss #12 from 5 to 7. Then you can walk over to the theater on the Plaza Chica to support the girls' Casa Hogar and listen to excellent classical music. It should be a lovely evening to enjoy culture at its finest!
