Maule, Zuberoa. Painter and anthropologist, Zoe Bray exhibits in Maule at the Zuberoa Media Library, through July 31st. The exhibition, “Face to Face/Bekoz beko, Ipar Amerikako mendebaldeko eüskaldünen potretak” (Portraits of Basques in the American west) has toured various locations in the US and the Basque Country since 2019, in both hegoalde and iparralde.  The exhibit is comprised of a selection of portraits of significant members of the Basque community in the western United States.

Along with the exhibit, Bray will give a talk at the Maule Mediateka this coming Saturday, July 17th, at 10am. Born in Paris, the artist speaks five languages including Euskera that she learned as an adult; being of diverse ethnic and national origin (Basque, French, English, Jewish, has studied in the US, etc.) bears an intimate relationship with being Basque, as well as with her maternal ancestors who emigrated to the US as Artzain sheepherders, as the present exposition attests.
